Comments:Found this site and made me remember how cool it was living on Okinawa. Recently connected with a friend whose dad was in the Air Force. My stepfather, Primo Alfiche, was assigned to Machinato then with the 21BPO on Sukiran. We went to Mercy Intermediate in the early 60's but left for Fort Lewis. My girlfriend and I used to hop on the bus and head to Ishikawa beach, Nago and Chinen Island when we were just 10 or 11 years old! Nobody bothered us military brats. I think I went to Naha Port but landed up at Mercy. BTW, we helped build the Torii bridge on that pond. I think Mr.Tom Hansen or Mr Ed Polsdafer (sic) guided us. God, it was weird with them typhoons slamming against the Quonset huts! I lived off base in Oyama until we got base housing on Sukiran. Anybody remember the best hamburgers in Oyama somewhere (I forgot). Camp Kue was pretty nice (got all our shots there when we left for the States (ouch!). MCAB Futemna was above our house. Oh boy and those tombs within the hills behind the housing area were spooky for 10-11 year olds, lemme tell you! Habu snakes; feeling the tub up with water during typhoons and huge cans of Kirin beer were something else! OH! and anybody remember Futemna Jane who used to walk along the highway? Okinawans protesting against the US forces and taking it out on us kids riding them funny looking buses they made us ride to Naha Port? Wow! Getting carried away remembering all this stuff! Looking to connect with Ruby Hamili, our dads knew each other. Have connected with the Kauupu family: Charles passed away--he was a famous and beloved Hawaiian chanter and historian. His sisters live in Molokai. I have connected with my best friend after nearly 50 years! Would also like to connect with Martha and Margaret Long, twins, who I remember told me they were from Lubbock TX. Patty Fair who was a cute blonde and nice. That's it! Thanks for this website and all those folks remembering their stay on the Rock.

I dated Bryson Fernandez for a short while until we found out we were related. I went with Robert Klemaske until they moved and later Robert Bubb. I use to drive a 1960 OD green volkswagen. Hung out with Danny Norimoto, Harry Walters, Kay & Bobby Pyles, Alice & Rosemary Sprague, Marlene Blackwell, Debra & Cecilia Paracuellas, Tanya & Rosanda Endrina, Dawn Fernandez and Ian Cook. There were many more friends. We hung out at the Teen Club alot. It was a very memorable time. I have many great memories and good times. It was sad to leave after graduation but came home and still meet up with alot of Dragons. Love it......

We lived in the Quonset Huts in Morgan Manor and used to spend weekends playing at the pool, theater, game room, and beaches (and booney grass) by Torii Station.. They were condemning the quonset huts as we moved and I understand a super highway and mall may be there now. I went to Kadena Middle School (the old one, near the gate that led to Koza) while we were there. Never attended Kubasaki - moved back to the states for my freshman year. I loved it there - pictures make me wonder if it has turned touristy? I am seeing my best friend from Okinawa for the 1st time in 32 years this week! Can't wait - awesome memories there!

Comments:I was in Okinawa from 7/54 to 7/55, in the Class of 1960 but was in the 7th grade at the time. I certainly enjoyed a friendship with Suzie Bohn and would love to have her e-mail address.I suspect that she has a different last name today.
Okinawa was a unique experience: Boy Scouts, caves, Sukiran Dependent, etc.

Comments:Mornin' ... Kubasaki was a real interesting time ... the early '50s ... anyone remember the jet that crashed into the football field? ... How about getting several days off school when a storm was forcast .... and having to stack all of the books and material on the shelves to keep them dry? ... Or the sight of all the rusted Navy assult craft stuck on the reefs ...

Life was wonderful .... all summer at the beach ... Boy Scout camping trips ... The roller rink at Kadena ... sneaking around the flight line ... peeking into parked aircraft? ... Poking into caves ...

Does anyone have a year book ... 53/54??? ... Mine was destroied ... I'd pay to have it copied ...

Ahaaaa .... life was / good!

I came back to the states at the end of my sophomore year so I may not be remembered. I'm having a big nostalgia surge and have been browsing all the great Okinawa/Kubasaki websites. It's so nice that so many people have kept in touch.

On a sad note, I saw the news about Richard Nishida's untimely death. He was in a few of my classes and I always liked him very much. He was a kind and gentle soul and always had a good word for everyone.

I hope to hear from some of my friends from so long ago. All emails are welcome.

We are both in the yearbook, and although we didn't know each other, have mutual friends from KHS. In 43 years, this is the first time, I have ever met anyone face to face that attended KHS during any of the years I did. Turned out to be a great party after all.

Nothing really earthshaking to comment on other than hope to see as many of you in Vegas 2007 at the Aladdin/Planet Hollywood. We're starting to get long in the tooth and so we'd better make a good run at these get togethers.

Comments: I was brousing and ran across this wonderful website about Kubasaki and K-9. Oh how, I remember both schools well, and all the friends I made.
I attended K-9 during the 71-72 school year (I was also a member of the pep squad for the Kadena Chiefs that year) and was a sophomore at Kubasaki 72-73.
My dad was station at Kadena. We lived the first year at Oki Baru, Yomitan, and then moved into base housing on Kadena. I spent a lot of time with my friends riding at the Kadena stables, bowling or at the Outrigger or Trade Winds snack bars. Oh and let's not forget Nakagusku Castle or Kin Blue.
I am married, have 3 children, 12 grandchildren and we live on a farm in North Carolina. We have laying hens, horses, dogs, cats, and rodeo stock (calves, bulls, horses, etc.)
My brother, Dennis Daddysman attended Kubasaki from 71-74 when he graduated. He played sports, baseball, football and basketball, the whole time my dad was stationed at Kadena. He is retired Air Force and lives in Glouster Point, Va.
I would love to hear from anyone who remembers either of us. I have actually thought about taking a trip back to show my family all the old haunts.

Comments:I landed at Kadena in the summer of 1960 on a C-54 driven by propellers. We left for the states on Mother's Day 1964 on a Boeing 707 with jet engines. What changes in 4 years!

I attended Kubasaki 4 years and graduated 1964. I played Football and Baseball for the Kadena Falcons, and ran Track for Kubasaki. One of my favorite fighter pilot heroes of WWII was Col. Francis Gabreski. He was stationed at Kadena flying F-100s. I shook in my shoes the day I got to meet him. Got to date his daughter Djoni too. I belonged to the Explorer Post on Kadena, as well as the PYO. I returned to Kadena as an Air Force Sergeant in the summer of 1968, and rotated back to the states in August 1969. One of the things I loved most about Okinawa and the military bases there, is that there was no way you could ever get bored. There was so much to do, it boggles the mind to think about it.

I will never forget my experiences/adventures and the people I met and were friends with on that little Island. Only 65 miles long and 18 miles wide at the widest, and yet, except for the day I married my wife, the most memorable times of my 58 years.

Comments:It's been a long time since I left the rock. Tried to get back there when I was in Vietnam but wasn't allowed. Have talked to a few old classmates, class of 69. Sorry I can't make the reunion in Vegas but recognized alot of names. Have talked to Mr. Hobbs and Mr. Mowery. Would love to hear from anyone that was on the rock.

We lived in a quonset hut in Awase and my father had to shoot our dog with his.45 when he got into rat poison. Rode to school in army trucks. Please contact me.

Charlene graduated in 1970. This site is a great find. My cousin, Marsha Cornett, and her family were also there at the same time, but were stationed at Kadena AFB. I can't wait to put her onto this site. She will love it, too. Keep up the good work!

Comments:I was on the Sukiran Knights football coaching staff the fall of 1967 and was involved in the operation of the Plaza Teen club. The Teen Club names were mike, Sayso and Bobbie Monterosso. Some of the football names; Nagata, Duddey, Windisch and many more which I can't recall. I also remember a girl Cathy Jacques and a teacher Roger Plapp?
Just before I left for the States in December of 1968, during a weekend dance, the kids in attendance each signed a football, which I still have. It was a great gesture and memory that I cherish

Anyone remember?
