Comments: I was there December 1980 - December 1981. I work with the armament systems. From February until I left I was the only female in my shop. It has changed a lot since I was there. They were trying to build a commisary on swamp land and was having trouble because it kept sinking. I bought my wedding dress in the open market, along with silk blankets and coats for a cheap price. I would love to go back for a visit again.
Comments: Was Stationed K55 Osan from January 1953 til Dec 1953. I see that you do not have many Pictures of that period on your slide show. I have some photos I can up load if you would like them and tell who I should upload them to
Comments: Hey - I was stationed at Osan AB in 78-80 as well as 84-85, first in the 51EMS (78-80), then the 51Hq Sq (84-85.) I worked for CMSgt * * * Ashton and Capt Deb Wood in the 51 Hq Sq, and at the time Col Reynold J. Thompson was the 51CSG/CC & Col Charles Link was the 51TFW/CC. I did see a guy looking for the name of the San Diego Navy Federal Credit Union Manager in the 70's - his name was Felix Smith. Felix was one of my best friends and a fantastic asset to Osan. He and his wife had a daughter named Felicia who now is probably around 35 or so now. Thanks for a great site and bringing back memories that are everlasting and part of who I am. Also a big hello to Doc Schmit, my roommate in 79, and all the rest of the ammo troops that made Osan such a hoot.
Comments: Jack, Thank you. you and your wife have done great work for this community of retirees. We pray the Lord in Heaven that you heal quickly and stay healthy for many years to come. We all pray God to Bless you and your wife to be healthy and wealthy and wise this year and many more. gnye
I'm not a historian, relying on the research of another retiree who had the information on his web site. I will add the information you've provided and I thank you for providing this information. I will however, keep the original information as a reminder of the retiree who provided it. He lived here in the Osan AB area and died in Feb of this year.
The more detailed information that you're suggesting would be better situated at a web site dedicated to the history of the 18th FW, which is not the objective of my web site.
