I was the Corpsman there from Jun 80 to July 81. Scared the hell out of the OIC when I first tested the siren in my grey ambulance.  Saw a lot of cold injuries of the inner ear due to the AC in the cave.

After being in Yokosuka from 77 to 86 (Midway (OZ), CNFJ (N2) and C7F (N2) the Navy in all it's wisdom decided I was due for a change - so they spent the big bucks and transferred me to FOSIF WESTPAC in Kami Seya, JA - about 40 miles up the road in Sep of 86 - they finally moved me to Atsugi housing so the commute would be a little closer.  Really enjoyed my time at FOSIF - was a day worker (command career counselor, CMAA, FIST operator (the one and only), set up ship visits for the personnel - Capt thought it would be nice to give our crew the opportunity to actually see what a ship looked like (except for the few that had their sea legs already - David Mustard - I'm talking about you).  Finally left FOSIF in July of 90, but not Japan - did one more tour (USS Dubuque home ported in Sasebo) before retiring. David just incase you ever want to get a patch made of the FOSIF WESTPAC logo - here's the design (scanned off the medallion that was on my name tag.)

NCSJ Yoko '73-'77. Kami was our receiver site. I almost got sent up there but I had a crypto nec so...... I did escort AUTOSEVOCOM INSPECTION TEAMS up there once to the SECGRU SITE. I had people hovering over me the whole timebut that was standard for an ET doing AUTOSEVOCOM/STEAMVALVE work. No SI just TS.

I first went to Kamiseya right out of CT"A" school in Apr 1955.  I lost my clearance when I married a Japanese girl in 1957 and was moved out to the old twostory building as an RM2 and worked there until 6/58.  Worked Ship/shore CW, Bub BCST, CCL, and TTY room.  Great experience.

I Returned to Kamiseya in Feb 1972 and CWO2 and took over from Chief Stalkaner as the Radio Officer.  I remained in this position until my retirement as a CWO3, at Kamiseya, in 1977.  Remained onboard as a civilian for one year returning to the states in June of 1978.

I had just returned to Long Beach ,on the USS McKEAN DDR 784, from Westpac, and received orders to Navcomfac Yokosuka. After two days in Yoko, five of us were sent up the road to Kami Seya. NRRF. I stayed there from 1961-1963,

Great Duty, Food and Liberty.  Almost convienced me to make a career out of

the Navy, but I went home and went to college....I have always had second thoughts about that...

Comment by David B. Mustard on August 2, 2010 at 12:57pm
The first time I became aware of NRRF Kamiseya, was in Feb of 1980. When I was in USS Midway (CV-41) Indoctrination class. Seems CV-41 was about to be relieved or had just been relieved on station in the Indian Ocean. Some smart Officer on the Midway decided that instead of me catching a ship that's on it's way back to Yokosuka anyway. Why not just send me TAD to Fleet Ocean Surveillance Information Facility Westpac (FOSIF) instead. I loved it from the beginning, despite me being a seaman duce. I pretty much spent the entire month of Feb there and learned a lot about the Pacific AOR. I went back to FOSIF Westpac in Jan of 1988 was an IS1 and was there until April of 1991. Great time and even better shipmates.
