This website is dedicated to all personnel who served in the 610 MASS at Yokota AB, Japan.  Please join us by filling out your profile so that you can gain access to the complete website. We're in the process of building this site for you to visit and enjoy so please be patient as we develop it and come back often to look for new updates.

 

The 610th Military Airlift Support Squadron (MASS) was activated on 8 April 1966 and deactivated on 1 October 1978. Its mission was to provide direct support to the Far East which included Vietnam , Japan and Korea. It handled approximately 126,000 passengers and 16,000 tons of cargo a month. (Ref: Stars & Stripes 07/23/69) It also earned six Air Force Outstanding Unit Awards.

Our members were very proud to support the air evacuations of the wounded from Vietnam, many of which had been wounded only hours before being evacuated. It was also a great honor to support the aircraft bringing back the brave members of the military who had given their lives. All of our members supported these missions tirelessly, in many different ways, and would do what ever it took to see that they were successfully accomplished. 
 

Go to your profile and indicate if you’re thinking about attending next year’s reunion or not. It will give us a rough estimate on the number of members planning to attend.
