Topic - Williams Air Force Base
I came to Arizona in 1967 to fly for the U.S. Air Force at Williams Air Force Base, now called the Phoenix Mesa Airport. Over the next five years, I frequently had occasion to fly along the border with Mexico as I traveled back and forth between Williams and bases in southern California. It always seemed odd that the major populated areas that straddled the border had an obvious difference in appearance between the portion on the Mexican side and the portion on the United States side.
