First visit to the Cherry Bar in Tachi and first and last time to see Jeanee Rose. All this thanks to co worker Jerry Davis!

I was attached to the 610 MASS as an A2C during the Spring of 1967. My Crew Chief was Tsgt Bobby Jordon. I really enjoyed my time. I just remember we worked hard and played hard. I later would transit Yokota as a Flight Engineer on C124s, C141s &C5s.

Have you ever attended a 610 MASS reunion?

Yes

Playing Texas Hold-um at my V.F.W.Post and traveling with the wife.I'm a member of the "Cheap Seat Gang"at the Reno NV.Air Races.Last year was my 29th year in attendance minus a few. Chief Master Sargent Bob Fuchs who is part of this group was my C5 Chief Engineer and a good friend, although he probably wouldn't admit to it.I guess I'll never get those dam airplanes out of my system. In later years, Yokota was a great crew rest while flying as a Flight Engineer on C124s, 141s,C5s and KC10s.My last trip to Yokota was the Spring of 1991 in support of Desert Storm. I am looking forward to seeing all of you in July!
