Yes, Susan Holloway, I went to Hof right after Leaving Wakkanai, and from Hof We went to Eielson, Alaska.

I am sure glad to see this group back on line. I havent been on it as often as I should, but still like to check in once in a while.

Who pays to keep this up, and do you need contributions?
What address do we sent them to?

I was stationed at Wakkanai from June 1968 to September 1969, after which I was assigned to Malmstrom AFB, Montana. Less snow, but much colder.

I was out of the military for a while, but reentered, retiring in 2003 with 30 years total.

I was saddened on hearing that MSgt (Ret) Larry Nilles has passed away. Larry was a good friend to me, I baby sat for his first child while there. He was a bit of a wild man, that his first wife, Yvonne, was working to tame.

I did get in touch with Walt Kannavel, a double linguist, Spanish and Russian, who'd retired and was working for Mazda as an area representative.

Good to sece folks remembering their times at Wakkanai.

I was in Wakkanai during 1966 when the ITT subcontractors were there. Was a friend of one of them, but I can't recall his name. He frequented the Club Seven and was a good friend of Terriko.

Bob Grzanka, I came into the Air Force SAC in 1958. We were Air Police. In 59 I transferred to Ramey, Puerto Rico until 1961, then Schilling in Kansas. WE were Air Police until changed to Combat Defense, while at Schilling. In 1965 I went to Wakkanai, and we were Security Police, and stayed that way until I cross trained out of SPs in 1975. I got into hospital administration until I retired in 1978. Might have had something to do with what command you were assinged to.

Hey Dave; I've been bouncing around in that "Wayback Machine" site. There are quite a few links to other sites related to USAFSS, Misawa, Wakkanai, etc. I'll copy and paste a link as an example here: https://web.archive.org/web/20050314170453/http://www.b66.info/Japan-Files/Wakkanai/index.html ... That's just one example. Just keep hitting links and following leads. There's quite a few pages, some live, some archived. Here's another ... https://web.archive.org/web/20110721173859/http://b66.info/Japan-Files/Wakkanai/Det2-Photos.htm Happy hunting.
