Comments:
The Misawa I knew was a very quaint, remote and un-crowded base when I was there in 1977-78. Although the Navy guys worked next to Air Force personnel up in the Comm-Center, I'm sorry to say I did not get to know any of them very well. We also were housed on the bottom part of the base not up on the hill, which made it hard to hang around together.

Besides the AP Alley excursions that everyone has had the main thing I remember about Misawa is the snow. My barracks was right next to the old Post Office facing the street and the theatre. I can remember snow drifts up to the second story of the building. Incredible! I also can remember walking to the chow-hall and sinking into the snow in one of those out-of-use 'benjo' ditches almost up to my neck. You would have to get someone to pull you out of them sometimes. I also loved playing golf there. The crows on that course were unbelievable. One of them actually picked up my golf ball and flew away with it. I know that's hard to believe but it is true. I travelled all over most of nothern Japan. It was wonderful duty.

For those of you who have not been back to Misawa since your left you might not believe the changes. It's going to depend on when you were stationed there but it has changed a great deal. When you enter the main gate on the right side of the road there is a Mall. There also is a fastfood joint on most corners. The base is also very crowded. I actually got into a traffic jam going up to the hill. The barracks I lived in (1032) is gone. Nothing remains but the pylons that it was standing on. The post office that was next to it is not a post office. The theatre is still there though as is the NCO Club. In a way it kind of depressed me. It's like that saying 'you can't go home again.' In someways that is true.

Well my best to all the Misawa alumni...

Regards,

Alan Root...

Comments:
Weather 202 - trained by Olin Firestone (great Machi partner). Drove maroon '53 Ford 2 dr when I could find it after running the alley. TDY 6924th at DaNang and missed big early '66 fire. Great times with great guys - really miss that place and my "moose". Paid big penance with a 2T to Peshawar. Interesting to remember visiting tribal territory, Kabul, Teheran, etc. Marvelous experience in hindsight. How about the 33 hrs.flying time from Travis to Tachikawa? My ears rang for three days afterward from the C-118 engine noise. Really enjoyed return trip category "z" in a 707. Best regards to the best people - miss you all!

Comments:
Misawa memories are good ones. Especially riding the trains on the "backside" of the island on "May Day" 1964. I didn't know what those guys were saying but I knew they were upset!! Beautiful people, beautiful culture. I grew up during this tour. Then went to Peshawar by way of Trabazon. A trip that should be relived if I could find the two guys I was with!?! Fantastic memories of Misawa, Trabazon, and Peshawar.

Comments:
I was just 18 when I arrived there.I was drunk and home sick a lot. I was X1..some good friends. Al Garner, Ed Mularkey and Clint Frizell, Bo Mosely and Gary Noya. I took some classes through University of Maryland which kept me in line some what. I enjoyed the afterswings bowling leagues. Our team was the "Off" brothers. I was surplussed in '79 and crosstrained into Air Traffic Control. This worked out well as Regan fired most of them 6 months before I got out. I still work for the FAA today. I have some fond memories of my days in Misawa. I wonder what I'd be doing if I didn't get surplussed. I loved the job but dittybops aren't exactly in demand.

6920th SS Able Flight, (I think!)
Comments:
I went to Misawa unaccompanied after getting married at Tech school in Pensacola to a Marine, Mike. Lived on "the hill" in the girls dorm. I was a 202X2 but trained in AIT and stayed at that rack for my whole tour. Guys from the NSGA side would come over and check me out because they said I had a sexy voice! ha! It was really hard to be without my husband there, but I found Jesus in Misawa! :) My fondest memories are of the OCSC Hospitality House outside the base where Ray and Char Houser ministered and had home cooked meals for us once a week. Also I made good friends, Trish Hogan, Larry and Debbie Ogden and I still keep in touch with them today. The festivals were awesome, and going off-base was always a wonderful adventure. Mike and I are a sucess story, the odds weren't good but God is... We are still married after 28 years, have three wonderful children and a grandchild on the way. I cross-trained to a 202 after Misawa and was stationed with Mike at Homestead until my 4 was up. Mike stayed in for 11, then went civilian and still is. Old supervisors Wayne Smuck, Art Helfter and Frank Fedarko was my Flight Commander. Would love to hear from anyone who shared this special experience!

Sorry to hear AP Alley is gone. I remember the blizzard one winter and the club was kept open all night on the Hill. Some good friends were made and have not been forgotten.
