6921st USAFSS Trick 3
Comments:
The memories are flooding back. The alley, the Thirsty Thirteen, back to back mids (couldn't do it now!) all the friendships. Had a great time in Japan. Went to Udorn Thailand from Misawa and then finished up at Pease AFB in Portsmouth N.H. returning to civilian life in June of 1973. Sorry to hear that the USAFSS has been disbanded. When did that happen?

Guestbook Administrator's Comment:
Helen Note: Not disbanded, renamed! In 1979 the Security Service became the ESC (Electronic Security Command). Then it was the AFIC (Air Force Intelligence Command); then the AIA (Air Intelligence Agency); and recently changed to AFISR (Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency. There is a comprehensive web-site for all alumni of any of these agencies at www.ftva.org.

My father Ronald P. Kindred started out our tour in Misawa in the 6920th if i remember right. I know he was a TSgt and when we left he became Fisrt Sgt of the 432nd Supply i believe. I know I had some really good times there in Misawa. I remember as a teenager taking the bus up the the Hill gettting Pizza on a friday night with my best friend Todd Vaughn. I remember keeping score for all the guys softball games. I can even remember the crazy softball tournaments we had in the middle of winter. Come on guys you have to remember that. I remember beign able to go swimming in the middle of winter in our indoor heated pool. LOL. I remember the crazy a** hill leading down to what they called a beach. Many Many trips to Lake Towada and after there was a typhoon anywhere near us we use to do to the beach to look out for the prized glass balls. Took lots of those home to the states. The base has lost alot since then from what I have seen. It use to be a small place now it is huge with to many people. Take care drop me a line if you know my dad and I will pass it on. markakindred@yahoo.com

Surfed on and saw quite a few names I remember and couldn't resist signing on. Names like Bob Wiltuck, Bob Haley, Ron Swindle, Sam Schnell, Bob Messersmith, Dave Nabb, John Montgomery, "Doday" Day, "Skosh" Wynn from my first tour. Names like Bill Strickland, "Scotty" Scott, Sue Garner, Ken Neff, Holt Summers from my second tour. Impossible to name everyone but who could forget "BJ" no second name required. Will try to contact everyone in the next few days. Anyone remembering me is more than welcome to contact me. My e-mail address is: rkccwc@sbcglobal.net. If anyone knows the circumstances regarding CMSgt Richard Lucas I would especially like to hear from you.

Was just looking at the base web site and it brought back some good memories. I really enjoyed my time in Misawa. I'm sure a lot has changed on the base since I was there.

6989 Security Squadron, days
Comments:
I had a wonderful time at Misawa. My roomate Don Carruci had a car (50's Chev) so we went to Lake Towada and many other places.

I had a car (360 cc Koni, 35 mph flat out!) the last year I was there. Lake Towada in all seasons was my favorite destination.

Traveled by train to Hokodate, Aomori, Sendai, Sapporo and many more on weekends. Took a 30 day leave in 68 and traveled to Tokyo, Ustsunomia (JASDAF buddies home, Takzuo Aoki), Nara, Osaka, and Kyoto.

Do any of you remember the 6989 th pig roasts? PM's on R 390's?

The USS Pueblo was captured while I was there. I may have wrestled Dwayne Hodges from Creswell OR in high school. He was the only one killed in the attack.

Comments:
With the Misawa Reunion in San Antonio starting this week (06.05.08) and as I am unable to attend, I was looking for additional ways to get back in touch. I very much enjoyed the time in Misawa, work and play. It was my second tour to Japan, as I was there in 1953-1956 at Johnson AFB, as a dependent. I was very young and left with few of my own memories. Misawa made up for the memories. Most interesting people, exciting work, sandy times search for glassballs (still have a few), day trips to Lake Towada. My Hachinnohe horse is still here on display. I would do it all again, well most of it....
Be well,
Paul

Comments:
Misawa had been out of my memory for a very long time, until I received a card from Helen. Remember a few names, Lt Bartlet, Sgt Dover, Sgt Jablon. Would like to hear from Don Weber if he reads this. He had daughter born mid August 1960 and my oldest daughter was born a few weeks later. Have a great one Neil

Spent only four years in the Air Force; my last tour of duty was at Grand Forks, North Dakota (very bleak surroundings). Worked 38 years for United Parcel Service and spend time between my home on Long Pond, Lakeville, Mass and my winter home at Plympton, Mass. I have two daughters and one son and I am a Grandfather 8 times and holding!! Keep busy ice fishing, traveling to my time share in Aruba and causing trouble in the neighborhood. Just attended a small reunion in St Louis with James E. Overman, Milton Jendry and Herb Souza.

Comments:
Loved Misawa as the climate was very much like my home state of Massachusetts. Upon returning from Japan, I was sent to Lowry Field in Denver to complete my tour of duty. Then I worked for Zenith Sales Corporation for three years then applied and was selected to work in Human Resources - Department of the Navy where I received training in various facets of Human Resources Management. I retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs in 1997, after completing a total of 37.5 years of combined military and cilivian service. No complaints, only joy! Would love to visit Misawa someday before I am too old to travel. My best to all!

Comments:
A great friend and Misawa vet died recently of cancer in April 2008, Jane Gerth aka Janey. We spent two tours at Misawa and one at RAF Chicksands together attending many movies, musicals, tours and spending many evenings talking. As Bronco Bayless stated earlier this week, "Janey was a better person 30 years ago than I am today." I concur with that statement and I will miss her and our conversations. I am happy in thought knowing she will be in a better place and that I had a chance to speak with her before she passed away. Janey.... I will miss you.

Of a less sober note. Cheri Howell (Merchant), it is good to see you on the board. I always wondered what happened to you. I hope life has been grand for you. :)

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!

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.

If there is anyone who knew my dad and has a story to tell , please.. I would love to hear from you! Thanks.
