I was there '79-'82. We just missed each other. I was the G2 SISB Chief. My oldest graduated from Kubasaki HS in '81. Twenty years later he was back there as the SJA and gave th commencement at the HS. Japan was a great learning experience for us and the boys. Enjoy.

As a Navy brat we lived at Yokosuka back in the mid 50's. Made quite an impression on a 10 yr. old boy. We lived right at the base of a steep hill where some kind of radio transmitter was. I believe our address was 17 G St. Probably all different now, but I'll bet that hill is still there. We kids knew all the short cuts through the tunnels and caves that were there. They were used as bomb shelters by the Japanese during WWII.

Probably Weather station hil and the comm array at the top of it. Grren street is still there, though all of the old houses are gone in favor of towers. the caves are all closed off for safety reasons with the exception of a few small ones for storage purposes.

Thanks Kenn. We kids tried to ride our bikes up that hill many times...never did make it...way too steep. The jeeps that would drive up it would have to stop at the bottom and shift into 1st gear to be able to make it up. My memories of living there are pretty vivid, as I said quite an impression on a 10 yr. old.

Our son was stationed at Yokosuka for his 6 years in the USN, immediately after graduating high school. He was on the FFG "Curts" as a defensive armament operator. He learned a lot of very useful computer skills and started his own software consultancy when he left the service. He also found a Japanese lady to marry while he was there.

After about 12 years in the Pacific Northwest, he was recruited by Dassault Systemes to work in their IT operation in Japan and now lives in Chiba with his wife and 2-year-old daughter (our youngest of 6 grand-kids). We don't see them in person as often as we'd like to, but Skype is a wonderful invention!
