Where did you work with-in the 610 MASS?

QSS Team member,(Aero-Evac Side) & Golf 7/Mike4

Do you have any favorite stories or notable events to tell us about while you were at Yokota?

It was raining like hail and a General and his wife getting free ride to Worlds Fair via His Wing's C-141. Unfortunately it landed with a broken spoiler Quad and we in Golf 7 worked our butts off trying to get him off before crew burn out time. He kept on our asses every 15 minutes, but sorry to say we did not accomplish this in time and the crew was put to bed. Poor guy had to pay for commercial flight like the rest of us would have to do. Some stories just stay with you forever.

Have you ever attended a 610 MASS reunion?

Yes
