Wakkanai Japan -- 6921 RGM Det 2 > 6986 RSM -- 1958 to 1961 -- "ditty bop" & D/F operator -- arrived as A2C and left as SSgt, NCOIC of the D/F Unit -- LOVED the place, altho I was too young to appreciate it at the time :-)
Just finished reading Larry's Vol III and enjoyed it immensely -- I was actually never aware of the history and lineage of the units which spawned all their successors, and which will now fade (mostly unheralded) into history. More's the pity!

hi larry,
I tried the guestbook but it did not work well for me so maybe this willl.
1. TUSLOG = THE United States Logistics Group. not Turkish-United States etc....a mistake easily made but no big deal.
2. I got to Karamursel, Det 1 in fall of 1957. we called it mudsite instead of mainsite :)
3. After Det 1 was closed, many were sent away while others were given jobs all over the place so I with another guy was 'personal affairs' and Ed Watts actually sent me a copy of the 6933 rgm clearance form with my initials on it cgm :) it was a 6933RGM form 31 of 5 SEP 58.
4. After leaving that place, I went too 6910 RGM at Sembach in Germany. I did a TDY to Hof where I did pass an ops room and heard a guy say, 'he's changing frequency' or some such.

5. I finished your book and it is an amazing amount of work you guys did...and here I was across from Armenia where it occurred. I do not recall it being in Air Force Times.
Chuck Maki, A2c 73250 personnel spec.
thanks for the book - I passed on to a relative who will read it.

I became a part of USAFSS in 1971 and remained a part of the family thru its many iterations up to and including AIA. I served as an MK and an MF in numerous functions both airborne and ground and retired at the end of 2000. From my first operational assignment at Offutt (OL-AA 6948th SS but flying 14+ hour "Beaner" missions with the 6949th) to NAS Key West (OL-BB (later Det 1) 6947th SS) to Hellenikon AB (6916th ESS), to Kelly AFB (HQ ESC), to Iraklion AS (6931st ESS), to Souda Bay (OL-RS 6988th (later 488th) ESS), to my last assignment at WPAFB (HQ NAIC), nothing compared to flying operational missions. Especially memorable are those out of Hellenikon flying along side the likes of Les Baney, Mike Powell, Gary Kehl, Sam Watson, Wally Knox and a host of other superb, highly talented technicians. Those really were the days...some truly unique and interesting missions, and the TDYs to such vacation spots as Khartoum (Operation Arid Farmer) and Riyadh were just icing on the cake. Thanks for providing the forum and allowing and old linguist to reminisce and share a few memories.
