2016 Boom Signal

Another Year, Another Signal


It's that time again. And here it is! The 2016 Boom Signal has been completed and uploaded.

Burns is no longer the Editor for the Boom Signal. But I wish him the best in all of his future endeavors.

I hope everyone 2017 year started off good and is only getting better as time goes on!

***Note: I am sorry to everyone who has emailed me (at theboomsignal email address) over the year and received no response! The email I had set up for this site was not forwarding to my personal email like it should have been. I had assumed that since it was post-upload, I just wasn't receiving any emails! I was wrong! Whoops!! Some of you sent me some really awesome photos for "Picture of the Month"! So I will be adding them to the site in the next day or so! And I have corrected the issue and should now receive any emails from this site to my personal email once again.

***Also: Until I set it up with the new editor emails related to the Boom Signal (not the website) will be sent to me. Please be patient! I promise to get them! I will update again when this has changed.

A New Signal is Out!

What is the Boom Signal?


The Boom Signal is a collection of comments about all of the Boom Operators. Every year the most "responsible" boom in the squadron compiles a list of members and writes a quick review of their year for each of them. It is then sent to the editor who compiles all of the squadron's signals into a single file.


The result is a history of us that keeps everyone connected like a signal coil.

Legal Disclaimer: The Boom Signal is a private effort, compiled during off duty hours and not sponsored by the USAF! The Boom Signal Editor is not responsible for the content of the entries. The Unit's submissions are edited for format, and compiled in geographical order, the original content is left wholly intact. It is the responsibility of each units Chief Boom to scrub the entries and ensure they are appropriate to publish on public media.
