Hi again Deb, hope this one works also. I was in Finthen from (ct9ber 71 to 77, then again from 84 - 89 then I retired. I was in hydraulics but drove truck for DSSA, SSG Perry. Cpt Schneider and Cpt Bazzell were Commanders then I believe. I had a blue VW, a 69 Mercury Cougar, who I let Joe Moon drive, a green Plymouth duster, a red fiat, a black, then green ford taunus. I also drove for the mess hall

Yea we must have passed each other at the front gate many times. I worked in the orderly room for a while right under Cpt Bazzells nose, then a girl from supply went home because she was pregnant and they put me there. Supply was upstairs in the hanger. I was Bazzells back-up driver when his guy was out. We had some real doozeys in that company. There was only me and one other girl in the whole outfit. She was a helicopter mechanic. I flew a couple of times when the warrant officers had to get flight time in. One time was at night when they had to take a prisoner to Manheim. I wish I could remember the first sgts name. He hated me. So much I can't remember from then. It has been over 30 years! It's good to find someone who knows the same. :)

That is possible. I got married to a german girl in 73. Spent most of my off time off course at home. There was 1SG Smith, and then Heitger. Did you remember James Bushy? Blond haired guy. He was a good guy.I put my photo in also. I have to look for some old photos of the company. Were you there when some guys burned a helicopter? I drove the tractor-trailer for recovery also. I painted cars in the motor pool on the weekends. Well, need to go to bed. See ya later. Thanks Larry

Twice. Jan 72 to Jun 73, and Feb 76 to Aug 78. My favorite duty station, bar none. I was a Mat Man, worked up on the The Hill. Ever been to the Cherry Blossom Festival at Hirosaki? Major party!

tractor    Posted 07-31-2002 at 14:04:40       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yea, I remember the Cherry Blossom Festival. Served 69-71. Worked up on the hill also. Was the elephant cage still there in 78? I've heard that was gone now, and everything was off satellites. Do they still do the same sorts of things there nowadays?


F14    Posted 07-31-2002 at 14:46:12       [Reply]  [No Email]
The ol' Wullenwebers are falling like flies, don't know if there's any left or not. Misawa is still a major SECGRU base, so I'd say the ops are about the same, just newer fancier gear. I haven't been back since '78, but the antenna was still there when I left.

Wullenwebers - Hmmm this term escapes my memory, can you refresh it for me?
