Comments:
I'm glad to find this site. I am hoping to see some familiar names from the time that I was there. I remember great football games, great skiing, plenty of bo-fry and having to send a lot of stereo equipment and china back to all of the relatives. I also remember several earthquakes, midnight movies and watching the "Blue Angels" on the roof of the barracks while they were doing their show for the main base. Nice golf course, too!

Trick 3
Comments:
Assigned to 6921st straight from Keesler and spent a little over 3 years at Misawa in the cold, dust, mud and beer. Married and lived off base for about 2 years. Our oldest son still bears the tag "Made in Japan." Great sight and it is good hearing about old friends. Getting ready to retire from education and have spent the last 11 years as principal of an alternative school. Not a great deal of difference in the students we have and those who were on Trick 3.

Comments:
My father, Brett Kirkpatrick Bushelle, served in Misawa from 1955 to 1960. Dad died in October of 2005. I will always remeber his great stories of the time he spent in Misawa. He was one of a kind! If there is anyone who knew my dad and has a story to tell , please.. I would love to hear from you! Thanks.

My brother Steve Motyka was in Misawa Sept 81 - March 83. Steve passed away two weeks ago. Totally unexpected. He was 45, young and pretty healthy. I wanted to post this in case any of his buddies might be looking for him. I'm his sister Susanne and you can find me by the username ultimatepa on myspace. Please contact me there or at my email lilyamongthorns@msn.com because I probably won't be checking back to this site soon. Thanks. If you have any special memories of him or photos or anything, I'd love to hear from you.

MOTYKA Steven, 45, of Clifton on April 8, 2008. Born in Paterson, he was a lifelong resident of Clifton. Steven was a member and Deacon of The First Presbyterian Church of Clifton, served in the US Air Force, and was a Materials Manager for Reuters in New York. Beloved son of Eugene and Gisela (Schmidt) Motyka of Clifton, Dear brother of Linda Motyka of Clifton, and Susanne Flanagan of Lodi.

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.
