I was a Radio Operator on RB-29 and the Radio Operator/Right Gunner on RB50G aircraft, 6091, Yokota from Jan 1956 to Dec,1958. The only names I can remember are Captain Murphy, Pilot and "Big Al" the CFC. My radio call sign was Engage 22. On page 61 of The Price of Vigilance Mr. Tart recalls the loss of a RB-50 from my squadron on September 10, 1956. If any reader knows the name of the radio operator on that aircraft I would appreciate an email. I would like to include his name in a bio I'm putting together for my son.

Six months of Russian at ALS in Monterey (graduated 1956). A few months in Sembach, 6914th RSM. Them to Berlin with Det. 1 of the 6914th RSM, later became the 6910th RGM, departed in 1959. Wouldn't trade that time for anything.

Being 17 when I started did not realize what a contribution USAFSS had on keeping us all free, now I look back with pride on what was accomplished. Would like to hear from anyone from Meade or Trick 1 Misawa.
Chased signal for 38 years when I got out working in Cable, Phone then Internet. AF training and experience
was top notch. Thanks for the research and your service Larry.

VN 203 with 6990th until April 1970. Used GI money for college then received my gold bars but never returned to USAFSS. I regard flying these recon missions to be the most meaningful memories of my life.

Chinese linguist training at IFEL 1961-1962. Airborne training at Goodfellow AFB. Survival training at Stead AFB prior to overseas assignment. Orders cut to Kadena, waited a week for new orders to 6988th at Yokota where I reenlisted and extended for a year. Assigned to 6949th at Offutt where I was one of those sent to Edgewood for the RC-135 test flight to FL. From NB to Vietnamese training at Ft. Meade then to the 6990th. Prior to separation sent to * * * Taiwan to be trained for civilian occupation. Sure wish I had known about the chow hall at SLK! I have the two volumes on airborne operations and enjoyed them immensely.
