I am adding some new features to this website (like the guestbook/forum, photos and videos), so it will be “under construction” for some time. I would love your feedback and ideas. What features would YOU like to see on preservingourhistory.com?
I plan on scanning in a ton of slides from when Dad was stationed in Thailand in the late 60’s. I would also LOVE for any of you to share your photos as well. You can always email them to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll get them up for you. Just let me know where they were taken, when, and who/what is in the photo. (My father was in the USAF, but I am a civilian. You may have to be specific so I don’t make a mistake when labeling them!)
I have added 2 albums of photos that Dad took in Japan/Korea and have started an album for submitted Udorn RTAFB photos. Check them out! I also have a page for Videos, so if you have anything relevant on Youtube that you’d care to share, I’ll add a link!
And just to be clear, I did not decide to do away with the old guestbook. The server informed me that they were no longer going to be maintaining the guestbook entries. I have saved EVERY page of the guestbook and RE-POSTED it on THIS server, so the information is still there and will NOT be lost! (The only posts that were lost are the ones added AFTER the guestbook stopped offering their services. I’ve updated all the links I know of, but apparently some still exist that are not updated. I do not have access to read posts made to the OLD guestbook after January 2011.)
Keep checking back–and for those of you who are Veterans of the United States Military, or Veterans of other countries who have fought alongside our men and women, THANK YOU for your service!!
