I have kept in touch with Roger Hubert, which is probably where Helen got my name. He has talked about the annual meeting in San Antonio of the USAFSS. I plan on attending the 2015 event which is the 50th anniversary for my AF induction.

I have spent the last two evenings reading what evereyone else had to say and still have 40 pages to go. I always worked behind closed doors in the comm center. When the 68 earth quake hit my ssgt supvr went home leaving me in charge (I thought I was hot stuff). Anyway after watching the ceiling fall down and enormous cracks appear in the huge rafters I told a friend (who happened to be black) to go out to the ops floor and see whats going on. He came back and I swear he had almost turned white saying theres nobody out there.roughly 100 guys had evactuated leaving us on our own. I was also there when nearly the whole town burned down. A lot of us helped rebuild AP Alley which meant a lot of freebees. I would like to hear from Rod White, Danny gibbs, and even Paul Beamer (even though he backdoored me-saved me from marrying her). so many others but I can't remember. I guess thats what running AP Alley and Chicol vill will do to you. It couldn't be that I'm pushing 72 years old.

Arrived Misawa in Jan 65 and walked off Plane into 4 Ft of snow. Grew up in Atlanta GA and only saw snow two times in my previous 17 years. Loved my tour, enjoyed great friend - "Zaf" and many others and enjoyed all my trips to AP Alley. Went on four TDY trips to Southeast Asia due to TS/Crypto clearance with ESI/Eyes Only etc. First trip was to make money to buy Motorcycle, subsequent trips were to honor friends who died during first trip.

I was looking for AFRTS, Misawa AFB, history when I stumbled onto the USAFSS Family sight. I spend 4 GREAT years at Misawa (68-72). Traveled up to "Security Hill', marvelled at the "Elephant Cage" and watch alot of softball games between the "Tricks". I purchased a couple of books for my father "Honto" and Skivvy Nine". My father also roamed Osan during his career (Retired E-9. I myself retired from the Air Force (1975-1995 907X0, MSgt) You have a GREAT Sight and it brings back great memories (Off-base housing W Area), May 1968 Earthquake (Great Shakes Day), Duster Motorcycle Club, VFW Bingo and Pony's (?) Electronics Shop at the back gate and last but not least "AP ALLEY" Got in trouble there!!

Misawa was the best base we were ever at in 6.5 yrs. We lived in R area, this was the first house we ever owned, our first son was born at the base hospital, my wife was NCOIC of Labor and delivery at the time so that proved very handy.
We always wanted to come back to visit, but we know it isn't the same that we remember.

The photos and story lines posted are terrific. It sure was nice to review and brought back some great memories. I was assigned to 6989SS. Forty Four years ago this month I got married at the Misawa Base Chapel and our first house was D-341, "B" Battery. We really had some great times at Misawa; the hill, AP alley, Lake Towada, the earthquake and all. Retired from the Air Force in 1991. Thanks to those responsible for this USAFSS Misawa Family site.

Misawa was my second duty station,preceded by Karamursel, where I was a 29252. Alot of good memories at both stations,but Misawa was definitely the one that left a lasting impression. Jack O'Neal (Oklahoma), Bob Miknevich and Chuck Gozdanovich(Pa.), are only a few names that I can remember, but I can still picture a lot of faces. Almost forgot, Carmine "Taff" Taffuri,who I keep in contact with.
I was married at the time, and had two children, lived on base(thanks to points accrued in Turkey). Lived on the Hill for a few months before my discharge. I'm the same guy that designed the Trick 3 patch with the Buzzard sitting on the Torii.
Spent time in the Illinois Air Guard (7 years), weapons loader on F-4s,retired from the Post Office after 32 years. Re-married,25 years now, acquired two GREAT step-daughters and have 5 Grandchildren, Life is Good..
Hope all are well, and would be great see some familiar,if not older,faces at the reunion in St. Louis, September , 2012....

I am happy my book, SECRETS OF THE COLD WAR is listed on youR bookshelf.

~EXCERPTS~

- At a routine traffic light stop, a Russian rocket-propelled grenade (RPG-7) was ffot hoired at the car from a hillside position approximately 100 meters to the left rear. The warhead penetrated the trunk and exited through the right rear fender.

- I was jumped from the rear, spun around and was looking down the barrels of two silenced pistols. I was immediately handcuffed, blindfolded, and gagged. I was soon loaded into a steamer trunk, disguised as the packing carton for a small refrigerator.

- Then at lunch, he did the right thing, he reported to the Firehouse, the local field office of the 527th Military Intelligence (MI) Detachment, 66th MI Group on Campbell Barracks. After asking to speak to an Agent, Sam said, "I'm no traitor, but I've been approached. Let me tell you what I've done."

- On the East German train, the Tour NCO's instant assessment of the situation revealed that his only potential 'measurement tools' were his Dictaphone recorder and a Golden Delicious apple. Having ripped the canvas muzzle cover off the BMP-2's main armament, he rammed the apple into the end of the cannon's barrel, creating an impression of the shape of the flash hider.

~FROM THE USAREUR G2

What we did in USAREUR was important. This was serious business - our tanks and armored personnel carriers (APC's) were up-loaded with war ammunition; we carried full sets of updated maps in every vehicle for our defensive plans and counter-attack options; when we were alerted (exercised at least every month) we rushed to the kaserne not knowing if we would return home.
--

Francis Gary Powers, Jr: "Well written and informative, the book is a magnificent assessment of the Cold War history."

Retired four Star General Kroesen, of US Army Europe: "Given the criticism, bad news and alleged malfeasances associated with our intelligence services during the past decade, it is most refreshing to find a book relating a far different story."

Book title is on Amazon.
