My father was stationed there in 1960's. I am going to send him this link. I have some old pictures that I have been going through and I did a google to find the airbase so I could document the picture. I have always been told that my brother was the first American baby born in Wakkanai. I have always wondered?

did anybody view the on HGTV Thursday night April 12th, House Hunting International. It was about a guy and his family moving to Misawa AB to take a civilian job. Very interesting program. Did not show much of base except for a house on the north side plus two houses outside the base. His family rented a house just outside the base near a busines that deals with farm equipment repair. Probably can view the program by going to www.hgtv.com

I met my wife in AP Alley. Her name was Yoko (Sumiko) and she was at the Florence.

I brought her home and marred her. We had 38 wonderful years together. We have two children and three grand children. Two of which she never met. I miss her very very much.

She passed away three years ago. I am heart broken in loosing her. I will meet her again in heaven.

This is for you my love. Love forever dear.

God Bless you all.

Comments:
Loved my time at Misawa! I was the permanent day shift entry controller at Wing Ops on the hill. Hung out with Dave Littleton who worked in Ops, can't remember which trick anymore. We both toured all over Honshu and Hokkaido, he on his '75 Yamaha 650 and me on my '75 Kawasaki 750 (still have it!). Made a few trips to Tokyo, Kyoto and Soporro on these bikes. My boss, 1LT Charlie Gregg (oldest 1LT in the AF-former MSGT) and I took a bike trip (he rode a red '77 Honda 750-SS), down to Yokota and Tokyo and hit many bars down that way. He spoke fluent Japanese and knew every back alley in Tokyo like the back of his hand. Somehow he managed to have 11 years of assignments in Japan, when I started working for him. The Chief, Security Polce was a young Capt named Emory Toops. Some of the SP's I remember working with were: Nelson Strother, Dirk Rogers, Jim Reed, Tom Mulligan & Bob Riley. The Wing Commander was a great guy named Col. Lester Mellot; Base Commander was a former SSgt named Col. Robert Edgren, another good guy as I recall. Made it back there once in 1981 on a SAM aircraft that I was a Security NCO on out of Andrews AFB, DC., and saw a few of my old co-workers. Managed to reconnect with a few people from Ops in 1987 when I was assigned to the 6915 ESS, Bad Aibling Station, Germany. USAFSS was such a close-nit group of good people, will always have super memories of those years.

Comments:
Traumatic experience for an ignorant Arkansas country boy.
USS Gen A E Anderson ship ride (sea sick before we got to
the Golden Gate bridge) to Yokahoma, then a nasty two day
train ride to Misawa. Got Selected for TDY to Det 2, Wakkanai
Dec. 1954(det.troop total pop. 90, including the AC&W det.)
Began snowing on my arrival, froze all the fish on the drying
racks and the "honey buckets and benjos" at the Japanese villiage on the beach across the road from the det. and sure improved the
smell of the enviorment. The snow was headlight deep on the "weasles" on the beach. One winter and frozen plumbing was enough for me, I "rotated" back to the squadron at Misawa in Aug. 1955. Anybody reading this recalls/remembers me "drop-me-a-line",I'll tell George McKenzie, he lives just across Missouri
line and we visit/talk.

Comments:
I was the first AFSC 751X2 to be assigned to Misawa who had an active SIR clearance.
I worked at Base Personnel and also spent a lot of time on the Hill at DOUT. I hope someday to find Angie, Mike, Steve, Dale, and the rest of a great gang of dedicated, yet "parting" group of people. I enjoyed my assignment a lot. I retired on 1 Jan 1992, going on to serve 20 years with the US Customs Service, finaly retiring from the US Customs & Border Protection, Dept. Homeland Security in 2009. I spent my off time working as the personal bar-back for the famous Mike Bobbinets at the NCO Club. During my tour, I know that I met every single person at Misawa.
