Comments:

When I arrived at Tachikawa Air Base Japan in May of 62, VR-7A was flying the same C-54s that was used in the Berlin air-lift. We flew the 54s to Osan, Pusan & Kimpo. But when we got the C-121s in August of 62, we only flew the Kimpo route from then on. I was assigned to the Supply Dept.,but became a Flight Attendant in June of 62 as well. This was my last assignment with the U.S. Navy. The best duty the Navy every gave me in the 4 yr.s I served. My first 2 yr.s was spent at NAS Alameda, Calif.

Comments:

I went to my first reunion in Savannah, GA and had a great time. Met a lot of new friends and didn't see any old ones. Hopefully next year we can interest a few more VR members to come. I would like very much to see some members of VR-8 that was at Moffett Field from 1964 to 1967.

Comments:

Really enjoyed seeing entries from old squadron mates. Flew with Nastali, & Fisher. Second Embassy flight with Dennis Koch. Paul Trestrail, Pete Limperes and I were the first guys in HISTORY to eat Pizza for breakfast on top of Mt Fuji. Joined VR-7A just after they split off from VR-21 at Atsugi in late summer 1958. Murphy was trying to start up a sky diving club. No thanks. Wally Pocher drinking a lot of beer in Sagami Otsuka bars. Then they moved us to Tachikawa Air force base and wrote U.S. Air Force on our planes. They were now C-54's but had a small SWD marking for "salt water division" on them. Enjoyed every minute of it. Still married after 54 years to my lovely Kiyoko. Luckiest move I ever made. We flew home on a VR-7 Connie with CDR. Andersons' crew in late summer 1960. Low rank, we loaded late, but with "Reserved seats". Lots of funny looks from officers and higher enlisted. We still laugh over that. Thanks VR-7 crew.
