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.

Had a great time there. Cause a few problems. Set off fireworks from the top of the barracks on the hill on the 4th of July 1972 after base commander said we would not have them (I am coming clean on this one). Erased the ? mark at the end of the anthem in the theater (Col Tolby did not like that!) Wrecked my dirt bike so many times the guys called me Crash and did not want me to ride with them on late nite jaunts. Drove the Love Bug-- VW with all the stick on flowers. Put eleven guys in that bug and drove to AP Alley from the Hill-legs, arms and head hanging out. Security Guards at the gate did not like that one. Yeah, for a little guy I got into a lot of trouble. Had my appendix removed and was AWOL for 4 days until Capt. Jack found out I was in the Hospital. Best bud Dave Crume dropped me off and forgot where he left me. Had to be moved from the R racks to the C racks because I wanted to punch my supervisor. He outweighed me by about a hundred pounds and maybe I was a little off that night.

Miss my wingman on the flight - Mac who used to turn me upside down and shake me for cigeratte money (I was the smallest guy in the squadron). I could not get mad at him because he always payed me back on payday. Besides, when I needed something he would always help me out. Man, I had a great time at Misawa! I met great guys and gals including my wife.

Shout out to TSgt Art Stinson, Thanks for the fatherly advice. I finally grew up, still married to that cute girl for thirty-nine years with two daughters and three grandchildren. Not a day goes by that I do not think about the advice you gave me. Thanks and may God Bless you and your loved ones.

Looking for Dave Crume, Dave Thompson, Matt Law. I hope life has treated you well.
