I had three wonderful years in Misawa with many great memories that seem like they happened just yesterday. There are so many friends that I made while at Misawa that it would be hard to name them all but some that stand out are Dennis "Ding" Bell, Martin "Luke" Whittaker, Rick "Bennie" Bennett, RC Finn, Jim "Gubbar" Hall, Jerry "Sponge" Tolliver, and Tony the bartender at WanderInn.

I loved being able to travel and remember some great trips: Our Sapporo and Towada Ko trips with Luke and RC; camping and fishing at a remote lake in Towada Ko park with Gubber; the Cherry Blossom Festival and Hakodate trick sponsored trips and many many more. Of course there are many memories of times in AP Alley at Roll Calls or just spending time with buddies. Of cold and snowy nights bar hopping around Misawa. Especially all the great times at the WanderInn Bar and knowing Tony the bartender. It was also great being able to enjoy the culture, people, food and beauty of Japan.

This was a great tour. I traveled quite a bit, spent LOTS of time and money in the Alley......Stagger Inn (the Fritellis were the best along with free beer on "mug" night!!), Forever's, Flamingo's, Red Dawg, Guy's, Companion's (can't forget the "chicken & cheese" and Yakisoba!!) and several other bars in the Alley and off of Green Pole Road. The festivals were great, too and miss going to Tokyo via the Bullet Train.

Misawa was my first overseas tour after Basic Russian @ Syracuse University and tech school @ Goodbuddy. I really enjoyed my tour there except for the bloody mids. I still use my memories of those nights to help me fall asleep. The camaraderie was great especially the roll calls after those mids. Since then I have met and married a wonderful Russian woman from Odessa. We've been together for 19yrs. The difficult part was trying to remember my Russian after 25 years.

Out of 22 years in the Air Force, Misawa was one of my best tours. I worked on Dawg Flight for Dick DeBosh. Terry Ward was there but PCS'd right after I arrived and Karl Hammerle came in as the reporter. Diane White (I believe that was her last name) was also there but she soon PCS'd and I saw her again when I went to Germany. Chris Cook was our Flight Commander.
In the day shop, I worked for Perry "P.K." Thomas, Bill Budge and Bob Messersmith.
I joined the Mogul Masher Ski Club and learned to ski in Misawa. I still ski to this day. I recall a very memorable ski trip to Mount Zao with Dean Wills, Gary Leonard and Jack Lee. We were the only Americans in the hotel but Dean spoke fluent Japanese.
My wife (now ex-wife) was on the women's softball team that Willie Lorber coached (the HOTDAWGS). I saw Willie at the last FTVA reunion in San Antonio.
Wayne Wheeler and Dick DeBosh are two of the friends from Misawa that I try to keep in touch with. I also see them every year at the FTVA reunion.
How many of you recall the homemade seismometer in the Fishbowl? It was a string with a threaded nut attached to one end and the other end was attached to a board. The board was divided into ten parts. When an earthquake would hit the nut would swing like a pendulum. The board had notations to indicate the severity. I think the magnitude 10 was marked as "Kiss your a$$ goodbye".

After Russian training at Syracuse University, I was sent to Misawa on the way to Wakkanai. After tour in Wakkanai, I went back to Syracuse for more Russian training. I was then shipped to Darmstadt, Germany for my last two years in the Air force.

Went over on troop ship USS Breckenridge. Disembarked at Yokohama. Don't remember how we got to Misawa from Yokohama. Flew back on TWA. Had a mechanical problem every time we landed-Guam, Midway and Honolulu.

I don't remember "the Hill" or "the Alley". I do remember DET 4 (and the AP raids) and also that 6921st was located several miles from the main base.We had our own motor pool and PX. I remember the cold, the parkas and the mud. Some of my buddies-Bob May, J.J. Moore, Troy Roberts, Bob Martin, "Corny" Depauw, George Ramsey, "Frenchy", Sgt Fikes. My mind is sort of foggy. I have trouble remembering whether I knew a certain individual at the 21st or from the other two assignments I had. I'm 73 now so I guess I have an excuse.

From the 21st, I went to the 6952nd (Kirknewton, Scotland)for about 9 months then was sent to the 6933rd (Karamursal, Turkey)1957 to Dec. 1958. Discharged in Charleston, SC, Dec. 1958.

Best advice I ever got was from MSgt. Donald Tadlock:
"Nelson, you need to get out of the Air Force!"
Took his advice and have done fine since.
I did enjoy my time in Misawa and wouldn't trade it for anything.
Cold, cold, cold in R-256D off base house.
