Commenting on Craig Beiler's post of Dec2020.
I left wakkanai on the last day of 1965.
While I was there the Deputy base commander
was Maj Todd a Smith - the description of
"Snuffy Smith" fits perfectly.
The base commanders that I recall were
Col Rice and Col Clark - both very good
in my opinion.

There from late ’65 until my time was up - 15 or 18 mos? On base for 203 work, sleeping/eating/losing money at poker. The rest of the time was spent at Seven or Inferno. The #2 girl at Seven, Sachiko, was constantly at me to “cohabitate” even tho she was concurrently moosing with the boss Sgt at the nco club (so much for the romance surrounding moosing huh?). Couldn’t/wouldn’t afford it. Loved everything about the experience. Stayed off base as much as possible to avoid running into the Base Commander, Snuffy Smith, cuz he had the uncanny ability to run into me around Base and I was into having my hair long (long as it could be anyway). He would tell me to report to such-and-such with my new haircut, blah blah blah and I would be polite then ignore the whole thing. This ignoring of chickenshit served me well later at NSA when I studiously avoided showing up for Saturday “drills” or whatever they were called and they never missed me!! For two years!! Obviously not the type to re-up, especially since the Two-T program had been terminated. Nicest bunch of GAF guys I ever met.

Dennis Price. Thanks for the information. When I was there, the only upstairs bar was the Inferno. It had the normal bar closing time of 11:00

Bob Grzanka: Mama Youngs was in the same vicinity as the places you mentioned. The owners lived downstairs in the building and the bar & grill was upstairs. Wasn't very large and probably couldn't hold more than 20 to 25 people at one time. It didn't open until 11pm and closed at 7am.

Where were Mama Young's? I was there in 1966. The popular places were the Club Seven, the Shadow and the Inferno. There were also two restaurants, the Chidori and another place down an alley way (can't remember the name)

Waco good to hear from you. I'm right behind you at 75 last April. Don"t do much with a new left leg from the VA but I get around and still drive - 2015 Jeep with a 5.6 Hemi - got a ticket 2 years ago - 101 mph in a 70. Judge said I was a little too old to be racing. Take care.

JIM BRINCKMAN - yep those were the "good ole days". Glad to hear you are doing well. I retired from the AF in 1978 and from the computer world in 2004. Turned 80 in May and still chugging along fixing up old cars as a hobby. Stay safe.
