This is a copy of the orders for the first group to be PCS'd to Athens.  Everyone else there at the time was TDY (as far as I know).  They changed everyone's status pretty quickly after December

Pictures of the base and Greece as they are today.  These pictures were sent in by Dave Warbritton!  Thank you so much, Dave!  Here is what he wrote:
Glyfada is completely different!  Trafalgar's is still there, but it has been
refurbished into a giant disco that incorporates the old Oscar's.
Bobby's is now a pool hall.  Sussex II is a restaurant.  Jester's is now an
upscale bar.  Flannigan's turned into JJ's before we left and is still there,
but is completely redone.  The Debt is a photo developing store now.  Sussex one
is the only thing that hasn't dramatically changed.
The base is open for anyone to go on.  It is now a charter flight terminal.
Several of the pictures show some of the familiar sights.  The softball field
will be the baseball field used when the olympics are staged in 2004.  The rest
of the place is tremendously dilapidated.

This Picture was sent in by Gene Willard with the following note: " . . .a photo of a crashed C-135 called Rivet Ball.  I was the AMS on this bird in Jan '69 when we crashed during landing at Shemya returning from a mission.  I subsequently spent three tours at Athens but this was my first AMS job.  No one got hurt in this incident but, sadly, some of the guys with me that day were only a few months later also on Rivet Amber, which went down without a trace.  Amber was flying the same time as we crashed, but she was waved off due to a snow squall and flew on to Eielson.  I thought it might be interesting to the gang." 
Thanks for sending it, Gene.
