I was at Misawa from 8/63 to 8/65 worked the engine shop and test cell and engine conditioning on the line. When I got there there were several squadrons of F-100s but they were redeployed back to the US, England AFB, and there was a squadron of F-102s (4th FIS) and a squadron of RF-101C which went to Vietnam TDY. Many of went TDY there also. A bit primitive at Tan Son Nhut back then, living it tents and etc. Enjoyed Misawa very much.
