When I was in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, I was assigned to the 106th General Army Hospital, Kishine Barracks, Yokohama, Japan, 1967-1968. I was a Hospital Corpsman and assistant to the Chief Nurse. My nineteen month tour at the 106th was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and I thoroughly enjoyed living in Japan – I lived off-post in a ten story Japanese apartment house in Hakuraku, which is a suburb of Yokohama. I would like to hear from other Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and Marines who were stationed in Japan during the Vietnam War, and what their experiences were, and how they liked their tours of duty. I would especially like to hear from the people that I knew and worked with at the 106th, but I would also enjoy hearing of the experiences of men and women from other branches of the U.S. military, and also civilians from the Defense Dept, USO, and Red Cross. Please post your experiences below, and tell us a little bit about yourself: rank, branch of service, military occupation, your job, and etc., and what you thought about your tour of duty in Japan and the Japanese people.
