If you served with the U.S. Air Force Security Service at Misawa Air Base, Japan, someone is looking for you.

Helen Johns Henderson of St. Augustine, Fla., a former Russian language specialist on Misawa’s Security Hill, continues to gather names of security services personnel for a Web site she launched nearly seven years ago to put old friends and colleagues in touch with each other.

The Web site has grown from 500 members to 2,780. The group is composed primarily of former intelligence specialists, but also includes personnel from maintenance, administration, security police, logistics and others, according to U.S. Air Force retiree Joe Soboul.

The Web site project was expanded to include all those who have served on Security Hill, but the focus is on those who were part of the security service years from 1949 to 1979. Security service was redesignated as the electronic security command in 1979, according to Soboul.

To become a member of the Web site, contact Henderson at, or call her at 904-829-9235.
