I don't know how some of you guys remember things from so long ago? I'll have to go look up the dates just to get them right. I know I was there in 1976 though because I met Jim Walker (maint) at Goodfellow AFB during tech school (1975) and we both went to Misawa and we married in 1976. I remember shift work, AP Alley and lots of snow! From Misawa we went to Kelly AFB and then to San Vito, Italy.
That was two life-times ago!! It's kind of fun to see all the memories though. Does anyone know if we can still get a Security Hall coin?

I arrived at Misawa with many great friends, Bob Wynn (Skosh), John Grimes, Cecil Smith, and others I can't remember names of (can't be age related can it?) The four of us were assigned to Trick 1 and started on Christmas Eve,or very close to it. These were wonderful years and I look back on them with fond memories. Skosh contacted me just the other day - what a wonderful and great surprise after not talking with each other for 25 years or more. Hopefully, I'll hear from more old friends.

1st RSM
Comments:
Arrived Sept. 1952 Johnson AFB, shortly after 1st RSM moved to Misawa Jan. 1953. Landed at Misawa AFB in a snow storm (softest landing I ever experienced. Loaded on a 6x which took us out to 1st RSM which at the time was dirt road, Mud most of the time. Upon arrival a fellow by the name of Hornsby with footlocker in hand jumped out the back of the truck, feet slipped out from under him, landed flat of his back with footlocker in the middle of his chest. Welcome to the hill. Enjoyed my tour of duty there. Played a lot of baseball. Was an intercept operator (maybe trick 3, dont remember for sure. Remember names like Burnley, Bowker, Disbennett, Cook, Dokter, Golden, "The Woo", Hornsby. Would like to hear from anyone who might remember me. Oh, by the way I remember a big guy from wisconsin who dived out the back door, into a snow bank, one night of midnights during a tremor, after someone called out that the building was coming down.

6989 RSM Trick 3
Comments:
Left 9/60 along with 7 others to go to 6925th RSM at Clark AB PI to set up a NON-Morse Int Station. While at Misawa I helped organize a Drum and Bugle Corp. at "1st Radio because our GP Commander was embarrased by the quality of the Corp. down at Misawa. Had great amount of fun there and it was one of the best assignments I had in 24 yrs of Military Service. People won't remember me as Bill Sargent but rather as Willy T.

Trick 3 (Wine colored Baseball Caps) will live forever.....

During my three years at 1st Radio I was a ditty bopper on Trick 1. It has been a long time but I do remember a couple of names. Al Day "Doday" was my room mate. He was from Montana but now lives in Arizona. Also, the twins, Harry and Larry Neighbors, from Lagrange, Georgia. How could I forget them! C.J. Smith, from Penn Yan, New York was another that this old mind can still recall.

Enjoyed the web site. Thanks for the great work on it, especially the pictures.

NSGA
Comments:
Although not USAFSS, I did two tours in Misawa with NSGA. I recently returned from a visit to Misawa, and thought your members might like to know that AP Alley is mostly gone and will be totally gone within the next month or so. Draw a line from the main gate to white pole road -- everything to the west for one block will be torn down to make room for an "American Heritage Mall". If anyone wants more details and/or pictures, drop me an email.

6989th Trick 3
Comments:
Morse Intercept Operator. Finished my hitch in HQ Security in SA Texas in May of '64. I don't remember too many names, but I had a great time. Played a lot of cards & pool. I remember Harvey H., Marty (aka Plateface)from Frostberg Md., Dormany, Holts (Great Bowler), and faces, but not names. I loved to copy code. Remember the dust storms & the snow? Who was the loan shark with the Pontiac & golf clubs? I sewed my trick 3 patch (3 3's) on my Harley Davidson vest. I still have my headsets in my office. Anyone out there?

Great site. Thanks Helen. I miss all the people I met at Misawa from all the different branches of service. Missed the football (even though my team rarely won). My best memory is the 10 day Marathon softball game I got together for Operation Eyesight. Would love to hear from any of the "gang" and discuss old times, and there were some good ones!

1st RSM Misawa AB; Det 3, Henshi Saki and Det 2, Wakkanai
Comments:
1954-1955: 1st Radio Squadron Mobile (RSM) Misawa AB, later designated 6921st RSM, as an ELINT Officer. During my stay at Misawa, I got my minimum required flying time in a variety of aircraft such as: C-47, C-119, L-20 and B-26C. The most productive missions were flying B-26 photo recon of foreign national ships that passed through the Tsugaru Strait (between Honshu and Hokkaido) in support of a US Navy project. Occasionally the pilot I flew with was Major Bill Madole, C.O. of the 6921st RSM. My additional duties included: military pay officer, courier officer and security violation investigative officer in support of 2 USAFSS remote sites on the island of Hokkaido, Japan.

Aug 55-Oct 55, I reassigned as Commander of Det 4, 6921st RSM, a 15-man test team at Henashi Saki, at a remote location on the north-west coast of Honshu, Japan. In Oct 1955 the site was closed because a Misawa AB Hospital inspection of the troop housing accommodations (Butler Hut) were deemed uninhabitable during severe winter weather. As you see by the photos, the site was quite primitive and had little to offer the personnel there.

Nov 55, I was reassigned to Det 2, 6921st RSM at Wakkanai Air Station on the most northern tip of Hokkaido, Japan. My primary duty was ELINT Officer. During my short tour at Det 2, I was given several additional duties, including: Detachment Supply Officer, Motor Pool Officer, Alternate Crypto Custodian, Fire Marshal, Ground Power Officer, Ground Defense Officer, Alternate Custodian of Registered Documents, Alternate Top Secret Control Officer for Top Secret COMSEC Materials, and miscellaneous other duties as assigned.

Aug 1956, I returned to the United States on Emergency Leave to attend my father's funeral. I was subsequently reassigned to Tactical Air Command (TAC) to fulfill my flying requirements with 9th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron (TRS), at Shaw AFB, SC as an Electronic Warfare Officer.
