Remembrances, Thoughts and Photographs = History of our service
searched for “Taipei Air Station” in the past without
success, look no more, you just won’t find anything else.
This is it… No one has put anything together that I can find.
My memories of Taiwan were always happy, and I wanted to share them
with others. I
know many of you have the same warmth in your heart for the time
you spent in this wonderful country.
As you review the
past and relive those earlier times in your life, I suspect many
of the memories of those days brought forth a sense of happiness
and joy, and probably a smile to your face.
Since no one had
opened a web page for everyone who served Uncle in Taiwan, a place
to express thoughts and stories of our times in Taiwan, I have decided
to begin a page and a journey with each of you who would contribute
some of your thoughts and photos.

We left as boys and
came back as men. Lets hope no one has to do it again.
We took a plane brand spanking new, started as strangers and came
back a crew.
We were young and slim; our backs were straight. Our eyes now dim,
we know our fate.
We had to go, a job to do. Our friends all went, we had to too.
Now years have passed and soon we'll rest. The whole world knows
we did our best.
Above the clouds our spirits will soar. When life is o'er, it’s
through the next door.
We'll join up again on another plane; take off for the heavens,
a crew again.
Wolfe - Brady Field
is not a history of the 315th Troop Carrier Wing, 19th Troop Carrier
Squadron (Yellow Tails) during the Korean Conflict, but rather a
brief recollection of my 25 months and 26 days at Brady Field. My
name is Richard Wolfe. I was stationed at Brady in the 19th Troop
Carrier Squadron as an Aircraft Instrument Mechanic. The purpose
is make it known that 57 years later that I am still on this earth
and to possibly renew some of the friendships made during my tour

Photos from various
bases - Many Japan and Korea.
In July 1950 at the
start of the Korean War, the 21st Troop Carrier Squadron was formed
by pooling all of the C-47 Gooney Birds that could be rounded
up. In December 1952 the 21st was re-named the 6461st TCS, keeping
that designation until it was deactivated in April 1955. The nickname
Kyushu Gypsies was given the Squadron because of the frequent
moves in the early days to different bases in Japan, as well as
later on the Korean Peninsula. These long neglected [but definitely
NOT forgotten] images have been resurrected from attics, basements,
shoeboxes, trunks and donated to the memory of our beloved Squadron.
Jack Hayslett took the initiative in getting the major portion
of the first images from Herb Grossmueller. Andy Barada provided
most of the reunion pictures. Dave Jordan also made early contributions
of pictures and also historical information. Many images are from
the extensive John MacDonald collection. Since then dozens more
have been contributed by many Gypsies and added to the album.
In the 1990's Gypsies from across the country formed the Kyushu
Gypsy Squadron Association which was very active until 2009, holding
a Reunion each year at locations from coast to coast. The Final
Flight Reunion was held in October 2009 at Washington DC. No more
reunions are planned. Former Gypsies or their families, are warmly
encouraged to join our band of brothers.
