Comments:
I remember making many great friends and having some crazy adventures. As a member of the t3's Thirsty 13, most of you will know how I spent the majority of my off duty time:)Still have my old trick jacket and my t13 medallion.

I'm glad to see that there is a site on the web that is helping to keep Misawas history alive.

6920th SS Able Flight, (I think!)
Comments:
I went to Misawa unaccompanied after getting married at Tech school in Pensacola to a Marine, Mike. Lived on "the hill" in the girls dorm. I was a 202X2 but trained in AIT and stayed at that rack for my whole tour. Guys from the NSGA side would come over and check me out because they said I had a sexy voice! ha! It was really hard to be without my husband there, but I found Jesus in Misawa! :) My fondest memories are of the OCSC Hospitality House outside the base where Ray and Char Houser ministered and had home cooked meals for us once a week. Also I made good friends, Trish Hogan, Larry and Debbie Ogden and I still keep in touch with them today. The festivals were awesome, and going off-base was always a wonderful adventure. Mike and I are a sucess story, the odds weren't good but God is... We are still married after 28 years, have three wonderful children and a grandchild on the way. I cross-trained to a 202 after Misawa and was stationed with Mike at Homestead until my 4 was up. Mike stayed in for 11, then went civilian and still is. Old supervisors Wayne Smuck, Art Helfter and Frank Fedarko was my Flight Commander. Would love to hear from anyone who shared this special experience!

6921st RGM
Comments:
I was assigned as the Supply Officer for the 6921st RGM, and additional duty as the Postal Officer. I remember the morning it had snowed so much that we (Lt. George Nancarrow) drove between the snow poles and out into the field going around the airstrip. Col. Branch was the commander, and Lt. Col. "Shaky" Graham was the exec. I shouldn't call him "shaky" because I too now have the "shakes".
I made several "pay-runs" to the remote sites, so many of you who were there in that time frame proably met me. Like most of you, Misawa has many pleasant memories. My last ten years in the Air Force were as a commissary officer at L.G. Hanscom Field, MA, and Izmir, Turkey. I retired as Chief of Services at Randolph AFB.
I then accepted a civilian position as Commissary Officer in Stuttgart, Germany, and retired from the commissary business at Ft. Bragg, NC. I now work part-time at the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History in Kennesaw, GA, about 30 miles up I-75 from Atlanta. Come see me if you are ever in the area.

Sorry for double entry. I can be contacted at rgarlits@roadrunner.com
Also, my wife Lenna worked as a civilian in Personnel and later for LtCol Lopez on the hill. During my 25 years in USAF, 14.5 in USAFSS I was an X1, X2, and 202. I finished my B.S. at Misawa in 77 and finally got a commission in '80. Asked to go back to USAFSS but got stuck as a computer center manager at England AFB, Alexandria, LA. It was fun while it lasted. Two tours in Italy, one Crete, Vietnam, and Misawa. Last duty station at Ramstein AFB, GE. Retired June 1990. Living in Waverly, Ohio now.

I was on flight for a while but was "lucky" enough to land a day job as the Disaster Preparedness NCO. I was the guy who taught you all the ways the enemy could kill you and how to use your gas mask, fun times??? My daughter Kristi was "Made in Japan". We left on her first birthday Jan 7, 1979. We really liked Misawa but left right when we were supposed to start a one year extension. While I was back at Goodbuddy going to the NCO Academy I landed an assignment in Recruiting. If anyone knows how to contact Karen Janelle who worked with me on days, we'd sure like to hear from her.
