This site is dedicated to ALL those who served in
the united states air force SECURITY service, on the nsa comint intelligence
team, during the cold-war years VIVA USAFSS!
The headset is probably the most representative icon of our work--after all, we did a lot of listening. The photo on left was provided by Al Lorentzen (USAFSS 1956-1962). He wore this set while stationed on Shemya
Island and later in Scotland. One can only estimate what intelligence
came through this one set but, believe me, it was substantial. Then
multiply that by the thousands that were in use 24 hours a day around
the globe and you may get an idea as to the magnitude of the USAFSS MIssion.
