Brad Sparks has stated that the date of the incident had to be in September, rather than the summer of 1952. Here's what I was able to find so far in the BB Archives.

But first, here were the Commanders for the 34th Air Division at Kirtland AFB
Col Thomas W. Blackburn, 5 Jan 1951; Col William A. Matheny, 25 Mar 1951-1 Feb 1952. Brig Gen William A. Matheny, 1 Feb 1952; Brig Gen Wendell W. Bowman, 15 Jul 1953; Col Frederick R. Terrell, 12 Jul 1957; Col Richard T. Knight, 5 Jun 1958; Col Lewis W. Stocking, 22 Nov 1959-1 Jan 1960. Col Stanton T. Smith Jr., 1 Apr 1966; Col Frederick H. LeFebre, c. 1 Jul 1968; Col Raymond K.
