Comments: Forgot to leave my e-mail address in case former Narimasu, Drake JHS or Grant Heights dwellers would like to exchange contacts or just stay in touch. or I still correspond with a few people every now and then (Diz Rease, Terrise Colaprete, Gary Puffer, Tullias, Kathy Hautula and anyone else who happens along). Glad you Drakesters remained Warriors!! Saw Mr. Pinkerton at Yokota JHS in late '94, he was still teaching 7th grade math and retiring within the year. Also visited former site of GH when I was flying F-16s at Misawa. Recognized the main gate and several old roads, the cherry trees still lined the streets. Saw the tall smoke stack and even spent the day at Toshimaen. Still very depressing but fond memories. I remembered Emma Lai from skimming across the Yamato Yearbook. Looks like a nice class! Wish I could have been part. Anyway thanks for indulging me and I look forward to hearing from any of you, whether I know you from the past or not. Is it possible to scan in the classes of '74, '75, and '76 as well Would add a nice finishing touch.

Comments: Hi everyone, My name is Linda Jackson, I attended Yamato in 1970 then graduated at Chofu in 71. I like to think Yamato is my class cause there were so many nice people and I think I made alot of friends. I was quite shy and wasn't as open as most of the kids and I surly regret that now, so if any one remembers me, fondly of course, write to me, I'd be happy to reply.

Jerry Lowe (you Tachi guys always beat us it seemed like). Check out the Narimasu homepage and you can see pictures of Kathy (& her brother and Nadine's older sister. You guys don't know how lucky you were to have stayed and graduated!! Lived at Misawa and ventured back to that area--doesn't look the same. Have run into some people from those days some may remember -- Wayne Calloway, george Kailiwai, Emmett Tullia, Greg Dewolfe, Marsheine & Deb Newman, Paula Hay, Hazel Cox) Just a few names.

Comments: After 35 years of technology I feel like I'm having my first class reunion, albeit virtually! Quick update: Summer of '64 returned to Waco, TX and visited a few times with Cheri Cunningham (class of '64) in Austin, TXbut she was busy as a wife\mother so lost touch quickly. Moved to Scott AFB,IL in '66, where I spent a few years partyin' with Jean Ann Miller (class of '64) - lost touch some 30 yrs. ago. Ran into Skip Abel during that time period, think he was going to college somewhere in the area. Danny "The Burner" Goans (class of '62) stayed in touch by phone for several years - last I heard from him (late '70s), he was a forest ranger in Montana (Great Falls, I think) with a few exs and 1 son. Didn't know Bob Leinhop very well but he came into where I was working one day in St. Louis (late '60s) and we had a short discussion about the joys of being back in the world but no further contact. The present - I live in a suburb of St.Louis, married my best (first) husband just 4 years ago, no kiddy-os. We both work and spend our leisure time fishing (bass!) and counting the days to retirement! Jinx, Class of '64

Comments: I attended Yamato from 1959-1961 (Graduated in Mass in 1962). It is quite a charge to review the guest book and other parts of the site to see the names fondly, easily and barely recalled. Kudos to the architect!! Like most in the crowd I would be delighted to hear from anyone who remembers me. However, I will dutifully go through the site, scrutinize the Guest Book and say hello to those I knew. My post college activities began as a computer programmer in Detroit Michigan. One too many winters in that vacation playground of Southeastern Michigan, catapulted me to the West Coast in 1974. I've sold computer and network related products to pay the mortgage and address other self-serving pursuits. I sincerely hope, that all those I knew from that adolescent era are healthy, happy and satisfied. Damn, this is fun. I see a lost weekend on the horizon.

It's a cold icy night here in CT and the phone rang about an hour ago. It was Linda Allen ('63). Bill had talked with her last week and Linda and I sent an E-mail but to talk was just very special. Last year Paulette(Haug)and I made contact for the first time in I can't tell you when and to think that she and I went to nursing school at U of Md and she was even in our wedding, all of this post Yamato HS. We are still in CT where John and I have been for the last 25 years and after today we are seriously looking for a warmer climate.(Bill always busts us about the weather here, but golf the other parts of the year are exceptional). Anxious to hear about the plans for the reunion. It just blew me away to hear from Linda.

Carol Cox Buddenhagen '61 had told me several years ago that she had graduated from Yamato High in 1961. At that time we were amazed that we had both gone to the same high school in Japan, thinking what a small world. Also, about 5 or 6 years ago, Linda Sims '73 called me to say she was in Atlanta. I don't know where she is now, but Atlanta seems to have its share of Warriors. I hope the '73 Senior Class will be complete soon. I was at Yamato in 69-1970 as a freshman, so I am anxious to see my former classmates senior pictures.

Sybol has not seen or heard from Jennie since 1960 and would very much like to talk to her again. They both lived in the Paddies close to each other. Sybol was only at YHS for the 8th grade 1960, but Jennie was there for a couple more years. I could not find Jennie's pictures in the senior rogue gallery so I don't think that she graduated from Yamato. But any help would be appricated if you know of Jennie's where abouts. Please contact me and I will forward this information on to Sybol and try to put these two ladies back in touch with each other. Thanks Warriors.

Came back in '69 as a sailor assigned to the USS Snook, a nuclear submarine and the first nuke vessel to enter Japan (boy, you shoulda seen the demonstrations in Yokosuka that night) and managed to sneak a quick trip to Tachi and visit the W. Side BX, still remembering where to pull the buzzer cord in the bus to get off. Talked to a couple of Yamato lettermen. Found out that football wasn't very good that year but Mr. Hirosi was still there! Left and finished my stint in the Navy and after that joined the Kent Fire Dept. (15 miles S. of Seattle) where I still am. Been married twice, divorced twice. Got great kids and a grandson.

It is really good hearing from all of you and we would like to find the rest of the lost warriors.

I have enjoyed reading all the posts and hopefully will be able to chat with many of you. After Yamato, I went to Auburn (Archie Jordan and I were roomates first year), went into the Air Force, retired in 88 and now teach AFJROTC near Atlanta. I live in Sharpsburg, Georgia. Have been married for 32 years and have two grown young'uns. When I was in the AF, I occasionally ran into people from Yamato and old opponents from Narimasu and Johnson. I saw a good bit of Tom Nettles (N), John Bergen at ACSC. Saw Don Jensen about 87-he did well in the AF. Never been to a reunion, always seemed to be too far away.

Comments: Although I did not attend Yamato H.S., I thought it would be fitting that I sign your guestbook since I was graduated from Yokota '75. I attended Chofu 2 years and Yokota for my senior year. Those of us who went to Yokota from either Yamato or Chofu can identify with what it is like to go to a new school, especially in your senior year; it isn't any fun. When I went there in '74 it was the schools second year in session, so that made it tough for us new kids on the block to establish any position in many of the school's extrcurricular activities. Nonetheless, I made my senior year as fun as possible. From viewing your guessbook, I did recognize a couple of names. Also, for both the Yamata and Chofu websites, it seems as if it is more popular with the people from the 60's than those from the 70's. The Yamato students of the 60's seem as if they were just as wild and crazy as the Chofu students of the 60's, or I was just out of touch with my peers or the in-crowd. You guys have an excellent website!

Comments: Graduated from Yamato Class of 1970. My husband,Chris, was at Tachikawa as a dependent but had already graduated from High School. He remembers many of my classmates and is trying to find them online. His sister, Bev, attended Yamato but only one year before her Dad was reassigned to Okinawa. She graduated in 1971 from Kubasaki. I would like to get in contact with Sue Fussell, Sue Yach, or Debi (Griggs) Hoezle.

Comments: Wow, there sure have been a lot of people added since my last message. Have had conversations with Jeanne Scribner, Sharon Wolfe, Charlie Moy, and several others since my last message. Loren, you're doing an absolutely excellent job with this web page. I am really enjoying signing on everyday to see who else has come on-line. I was sorry that I missed the on-line reunion, but my oldest daughter and grand-daughter came home and wanted Grandpa to take them shopping. Have seen the pictures of the mini-reunion, and Charlotte Pleggenkuhle (Blake) and Sharon Wolfe are still as beautiful as they ever were. Can't wait for the big reunion. My kids still think I am nuts, but that's OK. Still looking for Lynn Riebe. Also would like to get in touch with Ron Greene. Anybody knows their where- abouts, please send me an email at or call me at (703) 846-2160. Go WARRIORS.

Comments: "The Dragon's Roar" - Here's a review from about it: "The Dragon's Roar" is a cyber-zine about growing up (fast!) in Tokyo, Japan as a military dependent from 1958-60. It's a funny and entertaining look at a bunch of 16 year-old military brats who tried to stretch their chafing military/paternal bonds to the breaking point. Their school life at Narimasu American High School is given short shrift, whereas their adventures in the neon lights of Tokyo's bar districts, pachinko parlors, Yakuza gangster joints and motorcycle rental shops made much more sense (to them) when it came to absorbing a foreign country's culture. The phrase "military brat" was never better applied. For those of you who always did what Dad said, these were the bad examples he was warning you about. This is, however, an interesting trip down Memory Lane for anyone who lived in Japan during that period, with many photos of people and places of the time, in addition to many photos from modern Tokyo to show how it has changed. Allowing for picture (and lots of animated GIFs) loading time, this cyber-zine is a full three hour's read. The Letters to the Editor pages ("Bad Boys, Bad Boys, Whatcha Gonna Do When They Come For You" .. with it's own theme song .WAV) are as funny as the rest of the material, so be sure to read it cover-to-cover, all 60 pages, at last count. Look in your attic, they're looking for more material for the next issue. Oh, and because most of the writers have (grown) kids who might stumble onto the site .. their names have been changed to protect the guilty.

Being frightened on that road on May Day when rocks were thrown at my car. Bowling on the East side and doing homework in that library (the West side was impossible). Midnight movies, stealing sailors hats (I still feel guilty). Of course the Teen Club. I lived right next door. I loved the dance contests and local bands and Sat. nite when Top Twenty came on. I loved eating pizza and Chinese food in Tachikawa City. And that's just the beginning of memories.

Comments: Hello fellow Warriors! This site is unbelievable--I thought it was great that I have come across three fellow Warriors (Martha Corum, Paul Maruyama and Bob Durham) in all these years but now look at all of you out there. I have always been in touch with my closest friend from Yamato - June Sprague Walker. I don't know how many of you remember that the year YHS opened - the 8th grade was there. We were kept separate from all the high schoolers--in a separate wing. The next year no 8th grade so we were still the "babies". I had to leave in May 1963 and didn't get to graduate..always a disappointment. I wouldn't trade those years for anything. I now work for the United Airlies pilot training center here in Denver. Had to go to work for United so we could still travel. My husband has been retired from the Air Force for 10 years and I can't get used to being in one place for this long. We have two children - Tammy 25 and Jim 23. No grandkids - yet. For those of you who put this site together - Thanks! !! My year books were ruined in a flood while we were stationed in Italy. It has been fun to look at them online!! I doubt any of you would remember me I was pretty quiet back then. If I do remember right, tho, Skip Abel had a boxer named Patsy and lived across the street from my friend June--I was scared to death of that dog and she always came running over to visit--not scared of boxers anymore. Also, Paul Maruyama said Xavier was living in CA. Look forward to the reunion in Las Vegas.

Next, Loren and Harriet have done a marvelous job on this web page and I am on it every day to check in and see who has come aboard. Have recently been in touch with both Patricia Bale, English teacher, and Stanley Arlton, Math teacher, and both are still teaching. Mrs. Bale lives in Colorado Springs, CO and Mr. Arlton lives in Fergus Falls, MN. Both are doing well. They were my two favorite teachers when I graduated in 62. Have recently been in touch with a number of people from both Loren's and Charlies spreadsheets and look forward to updates right after the mini-reunion. Have been in touch with Barry Klien, Penny Skordas Haskins, Chris Hardy, and several others. My wife is getting pissed about my phone bill, but it is worth it. If I haven't called you yet, I will. My kids think it's funny watching dear old Dad looking up people on the web, but they are young enough and close enough to many of the kids they went to school not to understand what it means. This web page and guest book bring back memories that will be etched indelibly in my mind, what little there is of it. Would still like to find Lynn Riebe, Jeanne Scribner, Peggy Poston, and Xavier Maruyama. If anybody knows their whereabouts, please give me a call at (703) 846-2160 during the day, or (703) 321-9252 at night.

Comments: Hi, Warriors from far and wide! It's amazing that so many of you have gotten to be so old. Maybe I am having residual effects from oxygen deprivation from four climbs of Mt. Fuji, the last of which was Mr. Arlton's expedition with his world-famous bicycle. Or I might have been in the Yamato AS darkroom too often and developed high toxicity. At any rate, I must be fairly close to the mean age, because I did graduate in 1963 - with the best class in school history, I must add. After two years of college, I embarked on a 20+ year career in the Air Force, picking up a couple of engineering degrees and a commission in the process. I've been an engineering and program manager with AT&T/Lucent Technologies/ General Dynamics since 1986. I've been married to my best friend for 33 years and have a wonderful family: a son, two daughters, a grandson, four granddaughters, and another grandson due at any moment. We enjoy golf, tennis, travel, reading, music, and still a little photography. We are very excited to renew contact with fellow classmates and look forward to the reunion(s)!! Write or call any time - 900 Haddington Court, Stoney Creek, NC 27377, (336) 449-9049.

Comments: I attended Yamato High School from '61-'63. My freshman and sophomore years. We left Tachikawa AFB the summer of '63 and I graduated from Vanden High School (Travis AFB) in'65. I spent 9 years in college (long trip,another story) but have been teaching the last 19 years at a prison for boys, on the wet coast, in Washington State. I still watch sumo on the satellite from Japan and saw an ad for IBM in Yamato. So, I started a net search and came up with this wonderful site. There was a sumo named Yamato who retired this year. For all the people who have worked on this site, kudo's. Yes, I do plan on attending the reunion in 1999. My sister, Kathy M. Klinger, graduated in '62 from Yamato HS. I have some wonderful memories from Yamato, Tachikawa and Japan! Anyone who remembers, please e-mail. By the way, just who did steal the VR-7 anchor and put it in the Officer's swimming pool at Tachikawa AFB And who else necked in the overstuffed chairs in the kids room at the Tachi AFB theater And just what was the reason they closed school when the wind came from the wrong direction

Have five beautiful daughters and a 19-month old grand-daughter. After returning to the US in 64 went to the Univ of MD and got into engineering.

Like many of you, I too went from Green Park Elementary to Tachikawa Middle to Yamato High. Unfortunately after my junior year at June 1973, Yamato closed its doors. So I went on to the newly created Yokota High as the first graduating class -- 1974 -- but it wasn't Yamato ... so I accelerated my graduation to one semester at Yokota. I only recognize couple of names here -- Hi Charlie & Hi Grace -- since while the majority was at Yamato ... pre 60's I wasn't even at Green Park. Since graduation, I've been here and there and now at Los Angeles on the left coast of USA. There are several Yamato alumnis and we meet every so often. During our next get together I'll inform others of this site. Loren, you ought to go over to and advertise your webpage. There are groups of Yamato alumni listed there and yes, majority are from your class years. I think the site is at

I attended Yamato during the '72-'73 school year when I was a freshman. Yamato closed their doors, and most of us went on to the brand new Yokota High School. I have an older brother, Bill Gale, who graduated that year, '73. Hi Charlie! Sorry I didn't get Bill's address to you on time! I just attended the Yokota Reunion in Dallas in August. I'm a '76 grad of Yokota. I'm looking forward to finding out about the upcoming Yamato Reunion! I'm in the youngest class that attended Yamato, so I may not know anyone, but that's okay.

Comments: Wonderful to see a Yamato HS web site!!! I went to Washington Heights Elem, Green Park Elementary, Tachikawa Middle School, Yamato High (70 & 71), and graduated from Kubaskaki HS in 72. Just this year, I visited Japan and met some Japanese friends that I played baseball with. They drove me around and took me to where Green Park school and base used to be located. The rush hour traffic kept us from visiting the base where YHS used to be. My friend, Bill Gale ('75) still lives in Tokyo, however, I was not able to hook up with him. A couple of years ago, I tracked down and met Karl Koga ('74) in North Carolina. I've been in touch off and on with Kevin Cooney ('74). Would love to hear from my other Warrior friends!!

As a member of the Class of 62' I had often thought of the old times, old classmates and friends that were part of your life 35+ years ago and 10,000 miles away, and where everyone is now. Well Loren, you have provided all of us with a "Yamato Today"! You have done a great job in the design and layout for all of us to use. In June of 62' we got relocated to Hickam AFB Hawaii. During the Summer of 63' I was able to go back to Japan, for 2 months, thanks to space available aboard MSTS ships. In 64' we were transferred to Scott AFB near St. Louis. Spent 32 years in St. Louis. Great City! Have worked with the same Company since 1966. In 1996, we were relocated to our new parent companies North American Hdqtrs. in Beloit WI. Great summers! Cheryl and I have been married for 30 years, this November and together we have five children, three boys (Jason 27, Chris 19, Tim 17) and two girls (Sarah 21 and Elizabeth 15). Three are still in St. Louis. A nyone wanting to renew old times or just to say "HI" just e:mail me. Loren, again thank you for the time and heart that you have used to develop this Yamato Warriors Site.

In 1947/48 (when I attended and graduated from Yokohama Am High Sch - YO-HI) Meguro, your original school, was our competitor, then Narimasu, and when they shut down your school took it's place. We share the same unique experience and join you in celebration of our history. I invite you to visit our YO-HI web site where some of your history is displayed, and we "link" to you as many of our visitors attended Yamato and comment about it and Yamato. We hope you will establish a link to us, so that classmates from either school can be found.

Comments: Graduated from Yamato in "62". I've attended 3 reunions, the last was in '87' which was held in Colorado Springs, CO. This web site is great and I really take my hat off to Loren Collett for setting it up. I hope this really takes off because I've already heard from quite a few people I never thought I would hear from again. Nothing better to make you feel "young" again than to reminisce about the good old days. Hopefully, I'll have the opportunity to see some of you in the near future.
