The San Vito Air Station was situated near the port of Brindisi.  A beautiful city, today it is a active cruise ship port on the Adriatic Sea.

The location of Det B at San Vito was subsequent to the mobile Detachment B which was created in October, 1961 and setup at a vacant Italian air base near Lecce, Italy, about 22 miles from Brindisi.

The unit was relocated to San Vito AFS in 1965 and shared operational facilities with US Air Force Personnel at the 6917th Security Group

I was stationed at San Vito with the ASA from November 1965 to July 1967.   

Today, the Air Station has been turned over to the United Nations and still has some operations, but on a limited capacity.

It is to the many friends and acquaintances of San Vito AFS, during those years,  that this site is dedicated.
