Comments:
Misawa and the 29252 AFSC were the favorite of my 28+ years AF career. Misawa was my only USAFSS tour. I was retrained upon leaving Misawa and the AF never let me go back, although they did pay me a X3 reenlistment bonus twice because of that tour/AFSC. I remember the 1964 Olympics and the AFN Radio/Japanese TV simulcast. I also remember an X1 who spent a lot time in our X2 section helping us, SSgt Mack; nickname Mack Truck. He was quite an athlete as well as a great ditty chaser. Many times he kept us ahead of the game. I would like to hear from any of the X2s who were on Trick 1 during my tour.

I went to Misawa from Chitose (339th FIS) when it moved. I married my first wife, Eiko Arai, in Sapporo in 1959. My first Daughter, Carol, was born in Misawa Hospital. I do not remember names, but, I do remember many motorccle events, mostly scrambles thru rice paddies. I remember being the only Yamaha rider on a Honda road trip. (All gravel and dirt roads). I was a chater member of the Misawa Dusters Motorcycle Club and a member of the Motorcycle Federation All Japan (MCFAJ). I also gave motorcycle drivers license tests.

"Bob" - Spent 32 + Months at Misawa - Arrived as an 18 year old and left a few months prior to my 21st birthday. Had a TS/Crypto/SIOP/ESI/Eyes Only clearance and still only knew a little about the "Hill" and those who worked there. Enjoyed my first, 2nd and 3rd motorcycles when the weather permitted riding.

Spent too much time in "AP Alley" and drank far too much during our 80 hour breaks between working six shifts in six days. Met some excellent people and sad to say I do not remember many of their full names.

Wow! Does this website fuel the nostalgia. Hello to all. Those code words like the alley, benjo ditch, sapporo, the hill, skiing, motorcycles, football, etc., really flood my mind with memories. I see some real character actors that I remember have logged in - Francis Aki, Pop Tart, and Lulu Miller. I remember Lenn Bren, Jimmy Salter, Randy Graves, Florian Frommel, Phil Epps, Mike Jerome, JoAnne & Chuck Mizel, Owen Adams, Ray Kuzia to name a few more.

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.

I was a young NCO with a COT from Osan AB Korea in 1973. I'm trying to locate Sgt Tootle, a fellow NCO that accompanied me on a TDY to NKP Thailand in 1974 hopeing he still has a copy of our TDY Orders. We both were Telecom Operators in the Communications Center on the "Hill".
