Well this old relic from USAFSS is still hanging in there and just wanted to send Best Regards to all in USAFSS and the present members of the present command.
I was in USAFSS for almost 18 years as an AMT with my first assignment to the 6916th in Germany. Had a few rare trips to some rare places during my years. Norway and Iran.
The organizations I was proudly serving was the 6916th, TUSLOG Det 76 6916th,6949th,6944th,6994th, Det 1,6985th
The time I supported the mission, I could not have had a better group of airmen to support. USAFSS had such a great group of personnel and I was so proud to support them when they needed a wirebender. We had a few unique missions. My prayers still go out to the crew of 60528. I relive those days in command constantly and consider those days as the most important of my life.
I could not have served with a better group of members of the AF. God Bless you all !

Larry, I hope this finds you well and want to thanks for your work. I just discovered you via SOBs Facebook page, plan to read all 5 volumes as soon as I can. In my ignorance I thought no USAFSS history existed and though I'm a writer, can't imagine doing the monumental work you've done.

If it's of any interest,FYI about me: my IFEL class was July 1954; stationed on Paengnyong-Do Korea 1955-56(Detachment 2, 6922nd RSM); transferred to HQ 6920th Scty Wing at Shiroi, Japan 1956-57. Did TDY at Shulinkou Taiwan + Okinawa (Kadena, Onna Point) + Clark AFB + Army Security Agency in Tokyo with Washington Wong. Ended up in D.C. for a short stay at NSA but opted out after 1957, got B.A. State Univ of NY 1960, M.A. in Chinese Studies at Harvard in 1962, then went into filmmaking, founded Polaroid's audiovisual dept, then ran Warriner Productions Inc. I produce videos, write websites etc.

Bob Tharp hired me at IFEL in 1958-59 to design an audiovisual course to teach written Chinese. I learned written Chinese from Washington Wong at ASA Tokyo and then taught it at Shiroi AFB in 1957. I kept studying written Chinese through Confucius at Harvard then quit to earn a living.

Larry,

The timing of your Christmas letter couldn't have been more perfect. I have been wanting to write to you about the impact that your history of USAFSS has had on me.

I am a retired Chinese and German linguist (1971-1991). Served at Shu Lin Kou AS, Taiwan, Offutt (OLEA, 6948th), Mildenhall (6954th/6988th), Davis Monthan (Det 2 EST/Compass Call), Lindsey Air Station - Berlin for Lunch Bunch and V Corp Guardrail (Det 1, 691st ESW/Det 1 6910ESW). I know our paths probably crossed several times. I just wanted to let you know that over the last couple of months I read all five volumes. In addition to bringing back great memories of people and places, the books gave me a strong appreciation for the incredible sacrifices and experiences what those that came before me endured. They were also a great education from the standpoint that I learned so much about places and missions that I had just heard about but knew very little details about. One story, in particular, that comes to mind was the recruiting of operators to go to NKP. I remember that while at Shu Lin Kou, I went to a briefing and was interviewed for that but, since I was newly married, was not allowed to go. I often wondered what that was all about. While on active duty I, like many others I'm sure, only saw the part of the overall picture that our missions supported. Your books helped me see the part that I, and those I served with, played in the big picture and, in doing so, gave me a sense of roots, so to speak, to my military career, that had been missing for many years. Your series of books helped me realize that the small part that I played in the entire history of USAFSS/ESC was important!

I just wanted to thank you for the tremendous effort you went through in writing those books and for your service.

Steve Downs, MSgt, USAF, Retired.
