What years were you assigned to the 610 MASS at Yokota?

Sep 1967-Sep 1970

Where did you work with-in the 610 MASS?

Enroute Maintenance

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

610MASS was my first assignment as a maintenance officer. It was also my best. I remember well spending long hours riding around with Chief Ploof (RIP). An education for sure. He certainly knew how to keep his area controllers and shift chief on the go. His advice to me, "If you take care of the small stuff, the big stuff will take care of itself". The famous (at least to me) Golf 7 crew of MSgt Sparks and their exceptional maintenance accomplishments.
All in all, it was a great start to my career. Glad this group found me.

Have you ever attended a 610 MASS reunion?
