For those of you who tried to use the Guestbook late yesterday or most of today and found it inoperative - my apologies. Our webhost provider executed a server migration that left this website with several unexpected problems, but I think most have been resolved at this point.

Those of you who DID make Guestbook entries but found they weren't posted, I have manually re-entered your post from the email confirmation that I receive. You should find your post intact below - only the date is changed.

6989th Trick 2
Comments:
I enjoyed my tour in Misawa but the highlight was my playing in the rock and roll band "The Valiants".

What I did not like was the COLD weather and living in a dormitory that had basically no insulation and a heating system that worked terrible. I understand that all of the old dorms have been torn down. Good ridance.

I saw pictures of the new dorms on main base (big improvement).

One other thing; at the time that I was in the air force the uniforms that we had were EXTREMELY inadequate for a climate like Misawa. I hope that has been improved. I think that I was cold the whole time that I was there.

Comments:
When I arived at Misawa it was still an airbase wing. We came over for the build up to make it a fighter base. It was a sleepy little base when we got there. Four years later we were one of the best bases in the air force. I look back at Misawa as the best 4 years I spent in the AF. really enjoyed your site.

Operations Management - DOL
Comments:
I managed the quality control department for the 207X1 operations analysis. Japan was by far, my most enjoyable life experience and the best assignment I've ever had. This includes follow-on years later as I transitioned into the C-130H Hercules and flew around the globe. Misawa Japan was surely the "good life" and the best four years of my life!

Trick II
Comments:
Really happy time (playing softball all night after swing shift) and eatinch cheeseburgers at the bowling alley (never bowled). Great food in town at Miyaki's. Buying a great stereo at Obina"s (spelling?). Visiting Lake Tawada and Morioka and Hachinohe. Great friendships. And I created the burn-bag posters called "Hernt Signs, Ltd." Remember the staff sargeant AP guard at Security building whom we called "Pappy." The friendships were great. The wing had a splendid library and a theater and the NCO Club (with abundant bean soup and large burgers). Mike (Sasaki, Makoto-san) was the friendly maitre d' of our barracks, supervising three kind and smiling mama-sans.

Comments:
Misawa was my first duty station (1983-1985) as a Navy person and I've since retoured as a civilian (1998-2001). I remember and miss all those old times around the AP Alley and the Stagger-Inn Pub. I knew Rosy from almost the beginning but haven't heard from him in over 2 years now. Anyone knowing anything I would greatly appreciate an update. I'm hoping to go back for one more tour before retiring.

Comments:
I can't believe I stumbled onto this website! I saw some names I recognized: Mary Ptacek (pretty lady!), my supervisor Harry Lawrence, and the officer in charge over our area (block 12 I believe-the same one Harry Lawrence supervised) George M. Sledge, Jr.! Misawa was my first assignment and I fully enjoyed the duty as well as the off time touring the surrounding area: Lake Towada, Sapporo snow festival, Miyakis restaurant, boneless fried chicken, fried rice, Sapporo beer. Also worked with John Long, Terry Ross and others I can't remember. I lived in dorm 12 for a while and then dorm 10 for the rest of my tour. I was surplussed and went into aircraft structural maintenance which I performed until retirement as a Master Sergeant in August 1994. Now I own and operate my own lawn care business. I would like to hear from anyone who worked with me at Misawa. Great Website!! By the way, I still have my Baker Flight jacket!!
