Background on Stephen R. Guilmet
In 1983 I was a Marine Corporal assigned to the ISMO (Information
Service Management Office), 3rd FSSG (Force Service Support Group)
in Okinawa, Japan. In February of that year I was given TAD orders
to Detachment 'A' in Iwakuni, Japan, to support the computers that
were being used by units in the 3rd MAW (Marine Air Wing).
My office was in an old quonset hut. My sleeping quarters consisted
of a rack and a wall locker in the transit room of an old barracks
that was right along the runway. I was told that it was occupied by
Japanese fighter pilots during WWII. For six months I kept the
computers running by day and listened to the rats at night.
