We were usually attached to the USAFSS (as I was in Bremerhaven- 6913th RSM). At Misawa however, we were "listed" as part of the 439th Combat Support Grp. We were in that small building on the man-made hill as you rounded the WEST end of the runway and entered the 6921 wing near the lake.

Good duty....we lived both on and off base and upon arrival we purchased a house near the POL gate (R-100) We sold R-100 to a Lt.that had just arrived with a new fighter grp..... Later we lived in base housing near the water tower. We were able to move on base right away because of the concurrent overseas tour time. My daughter was born at the AF Hosp. on Misawa. We experienced the downtown fire.....and the earthquake. We are still picking plaster out of some books!

I had a wonderful tour at Misawa, I would like to contact many of the other who were there at that time. If I could see a picture of some of them, if they have any ,it would surely refresh my proud memories of my stay there.

Wish I could remember the SMALL chicken place off base. Must have spent 200 hours eating there! Fondly remember my off-base residence with the tin siding and roof. Winter time often found me breaking the ice in the toilet and seeing my wife walking around with an electric blanket (plugged in) around her!! Worked with Operations Eyesight and remember those sooo cold days selling hot dogs from the "wagon." Great commaraderie! Super memories!!! Ohio......mike rooney

Spent just over 4 wonderful years in Misawa. Was one of my best tours ever as a Russina linguist. Departed in 12/78 for UMUC, College Park, MD to complete my bachelor's degree. From there to DLIWC for Intermediate Russian. Applied for/accepted into OTS. Finished out my USAF time as a Minuteman III Missile Launch Officer.
After the USAF, employed by Westinghouse/Northrop Grumman for over 25 years working in Technical Publications on the Peacekeeper and TRIDENT III missle programs.
Now "retired" in the great Pacific Northwest, but still working in technical documentation for the GMD Program.
Would love to hear back from those who may remember me. (Hear that, Jim Alverson?)

Loved every second of my time spent in japan, it changed my life, the way I looked at human beings was never the same. Interacting with such honest and honorable people changed my preconceived ideas of humanity. I traveled around the northern prefecture quiet extensively by train and boat and never had a bad experience. The work I did on base was without doubt the most interesting job experience of my 67 years on earth. Thank you GOD for the best times so far!!! GO GATORS!!!!

Worked as the IATS supervisor on DAWG Flt. Played on the "B" softball team. Keyboard player in "Wattz", changed some players and name to "Janus" and eventually to "Pacific Transport". The band won some type of Japan music competition award sometime in late 1980 after I had separated. Worked for the parent organization following separation until the end of August 2012. Now retired in Hawaii. Spent my last five years in Okinawa where I started my USAFSS career way back in May 1970.

My first tour in Misawa was after graduating tech school at March AFB Calif. I worked in a converted mess hall across the street from the bowling alley. We lived in quonset huts (open bay), across from the gym and in front of the base chapel. About a year later the 6921st RGM joined the 6989th up on the hill. When I returned to Misawa on my second tour I was accompined with my wife, (Miriam), and a six month old son. We were blessed with another son while there. Joe Curran was S&W Super, Steven Pattay was assistant and Chat Chatlos and myself were product reporters. I
also served as NCOIC of MSD. Retired at NSA in 1982 and from the US Postal Service in 2001. My Misawa asignments were the best. I hope to return for a visit within the next two years.
