The K.I. Sawyer Heritage Air Museum has been preserving the history of the former Air Force base since 1993. They now need the public’s help.

The museum has hundreds of items on display—uniforms and badges, a jet seat and equipment from the days when the community was home to Air Force families from across the country.

They even have static displays of former Air Force jest and planes for visitors to check out.

However, the museum includes a wall of mystery, filled with old pictures from the former base photo lab, with no names attached.

“The base photo lab here took the pictures, but as they were wont to do, they didn't identify anybody in the pictures,” said Robert Vicki, with the K.I. Sawyer Heritage Air Museum. “They furnished the pictures to whomever they took the pictures of that's as far as it went. I just want to know who these people are, and I think they'd like to know that we're remembering them in relation to Sawyer.”

As names are added to the photographs, they will be added to a photo album that’s being made to be put on display.

The K.I. Sawyer Heritage Air Museum is developing a Facebook page to spread the word. In the meantime, the museum can be contacted by phone or email. You can also visit
