Kagnew Station
Stateside News

I have several articles printed in stateside newspapers about Kagnew Station. It is interesting reading how the media covered and explained Kagnew Station. If you have any other old newspaper articles, please and we'll see how I can get it posted here.

New!I was searching around the web and came across a unique article about an attack on Kagnew on Friday, September 12th, 1975. I had heard about this, but this short piece documents it happened along with the date.
