About the Book
HONTO III, The Pictorial History of the USAF Security Service at Misawa, Japan contains photographs and comments made about them. Together, these pictures chronicle the adventures of then-young men who moved an entire intelligence unit from one end of Japan to the other and the hardships they endured while living and working in snow covered tents.

After the unit achieved a semblance of normalcy, the troops found time to “explore” the town of Misawa, Japan, the surrounding countryside, and enjoyed the experience of being young men on their own in a foreign country. And everywhere they went they pointed a camera and pressed a button, having no idea they were creating history. They took photos of some killer earthquakes, paralyzing snow storms, the destruction of the town of Misawa by fire, drunken binges, and when the women came, they took pictures of them, too.

If you are the spouse of someone who served in Misawa, Japan from the late 1940s to 1979, the pictures this book will give you great insight on why they act and think the way they do. But the people who would most benefit from these photos are the young men and women currently serving in the Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Agency. You’ll find it fascinating to discover where you came from.
