Had terrific time while stationed at Misawa. Over the years, have lost contact with many buddies/friends stationed there in the early 60's. Attempted several times by extending my tour for a chance for a consecutive overseas tour to Germany. After Misawa, arrived at Goodfellow and eventually had two tours to Germany and finally back to Goodfellow in 78. Every election year BRAC in on the table and it looked as if GAFB would close all operations in 1980. So, guess what? I had put in my paperwork to retire and the base remained open. Would have stayed in longer if I had only known that Goodbuddy would stay open and Lowry ended up getting the axe. Retired from USAF, the City of San Angelo and now completely retired just wondering where my next move may land me. Maybe 6 feet under but not soon. To all my friends out there, give me a holler sometime if you can. Yes, I'm originally from the Mountaineer state (WV). Shift work, playing pool with my friends and dragging our bods back from AP Alley were the good ole days.

I was born to Sakai Shoji (dob 10/20/33) at Misawa, Japan on November 23, 1964. I was adopted to an American USAF and his Japanese wife. I am looking for anyone who might have known my birthmother. She also had 2 boys, James Monroe dob 3/29/56 and Yoshimi b 7/9/61. They were both adopted to American families as well.
Did you or anyone you know date Sakai Shoji in 1964? I only know she may have worked selling cigarettes at the NCO club.

Could there be a better place to be? Been to Pakistan, Hawaii, England, Florida, and Texas.. If I could go back, Misawa and England would be 1st places... Played fastpitch (SS & Catcher) for the Dawgs.. Archery Club (I was there when the first Compound bow came in)... Crawled AP Alley once or twice (can't really remember if there was a 2nd).. Was a member of the Motorcycle club... Great golf course which I disgraced many times with my Hacker Self's presence.. Almost got shot by JASDF guards at OPS during construction in '72 (trying to take a shortcut during a motorcycle outing). Lived in on-base private housing (trailer's)... Went to the '72 Olympics. Our "hotel" room was great... had an icicle 3' long hanging inside the window!!! I remember once being slammed by some dude from the day shop about how I wasn't running Wideband "by the book". "Those 3 guys at Goodfellow are the experts on this system, and they spent a lot of time putting this book together. You need to make sure you follow it to the tee.." I loved the look on his face when I showed him the signature page on that guidebook and that one of the three names on it was mine!! I loved it!! That Captain couldn't get out of the section fast enough!!!! Memories!!! Ya gotta love it!!

Forgot to include my wife (Adele) in my entry (#8340). As I said in that initial entry we had a great tour (with the exception of the fire and quake).

Adele worked as a GS type civilian for the Chief of Maintenence (On the flight line) she took inflight emergencies,etc and......here I was the Air Force member with NOTHING to do with the flying part of the USAF, Ha!

So I joined the Misawa Aero Club and got my Private Pilots license in one of the 1959 Cessna 150's. Pulling out onto the active runway at Misawa was like pulling out on I-80 in DesMoines and looking toward Omaha! My solo cross-country (more than 100 miles and return) was to Sendai....the same airport that was under water from the terrible Sunami in 2011.

We could not wait to take baby Paula home to the States and show her off to all her cousins.

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!!!!
