I was sent to taiwan for my last 9 months in the Army - screw up by the
"expert file" at Devens. Worked 05D20
at the site at Linkou and Tai Chung. Also D30 - Anybody know if Tex Bruton
is still in the OK Penn - he murdered his wife...??

Jim Hopkins

More memories - can it be almost 40 years ago ..--..

I fell for the recruiters "line" in '64 and went to Devens 1/64 - 6/64 for 982/98c school. First o/s tour was 318th ASA Bn Herzo Base which turned into FS Herzo before I left in 67. Returned to Devens (USASATC&S) for instructor duty 67/69. Mar 69 orders for FS SINOP (ONE LOST YEAR)(Its bad enough to be sent to Sinop, but to be sent with the class that you just graduated). To this day I still haven't been able to locate Jack Charron. Mar 70 I returned to Devens as instructor til Jul 71. Jul 71 went back to FS Herzo and in Dec 71 to FS Augsburg. Stayed in Augsburg until Sep 74 when I went to Ft Meade for CY155. Mar 75 I hauled it back to Devens and worked in Tng Lit Br as tech writer/editor with CWO James Giblin (no I don't know where he is nor can I find Paul Holister). Jun 77 I was assigned to NSA with duty at Menwith Hill Station. Nov 78 attached to Recruiting Command Hq Des Moines until Jan 80 when I returned to Devens to instruct the JrNCO Course. Dec 82 I got orders to the ASA Bn in Frankfurt. June 83 back to Devens to Tng&Eval BR until retirement in Aug 84.

Just on the off chance, is that "Chance?" . . .that I might have run across a familiar name or reference, I searched the net and found this and Maddog's web sites. Thanks for the site; and, like some other guestbook references, I had thought that the ASA and its members had faded to dust.

I was 98C40 stationed in Sinop from 1969-70 and Bad Aibling form 1970-72, until I almost killed myself driving back hammered from the Grosskarolininfeld Fest in August 1972. I left a lot of friends there, from all of whom I have lost touch. It would be great to hear from any of them again.

Shortly after finding this ASA site and all the links I have started an ASA chat room on IRC newnet all of this is free. The only thing you have to do is to download the chat program and run it.IRC works with any computer and OS you may be using MAC or win95 or win3.1
I think it also will work with unix. I've had a computer for almost two years now, and the only OS I know is windows95 PIRCH is a chat program as is mIRCH both are shareware but will work even if you dont pay the price and both work well with win95 or win3.1 I use PIRCH if you choose to use that one I can help you set it up. this is not a webpage it works independent of your browser but also with your browser in as much as if someone were to paste or post a URL you can click on the URL and up pops your browser and away you go. you can be on many different channels or rooms (what ever you wish to call them)and also more than one net. there are many nets such as newnet where I've started the ASA channel or undernet, galaxynet, Dalnet, EFnet and many more.
if you are use mIRC.
IRC is live real time chat. Any of you guys out there that's into html and scripts, well, you'll just love pirch and mirc. Both will let you send files to and from each other such as wav, midi, pics and text and so on. I'll place a few urls on my web page look for ASA
hope to see ya soon, Mike

Why is it that we all seem to be getting nostalgic after all these years? Why do I want to find out what happened to the guys I was in language school, Nam, and Hakata with and could care less about high school and college buddies.

Lostinthewoods in 67
Devens, Jul-Dec 67, 98C20 school. (Class 11, i think, had school on Saturday mornings to squeeze the 15-week course into 11 1/2 or so.
Arrived in-country Christmas Eve 67, lived in a GP medium and filled sandbags at Davis Station until transferred a day or two later to 313th at Nha Trang.
In-processed 313th, spent new year's at Nha Trang, few days later went to 330th at lovely Engineer Hill, Pleiku (center of mass AR 795 525).
Started out in tent, moved into quonset. Was in quonset (cma section under SFC "where's my mill" cantrememberhisname and SSG Max Woods from Chitose) when it was hit by mortar in the March 5 mortar attack. Remember Nick Plessas (SPT) taking charge since the E7 in charge (i think i'll go eat a egg) was at the club or something. Bobby Darin, Igor Grall and another guy were there, too. The two 403d Det guys (flakey knight and joe byrnes) were up at the club or they would've been hurt, also.
Left beautiful RVN for Ft Riley ks (326 asa co/24th id(mech). From there to Ft Hood (hhc 311th ASA) as s-3 clerk and security guard. Then back to RVN.
330th again in Feb 70, Det 8/330th when the rest went to Nha Trang. Camp Schmidt, Log Center. Got out in Feb 71.
Joined 404 ASA Co (reserves) in Austin, TX in '74, went back into Army in '78.
Misawa 78-81,
ANCOC Devens '81,
Ft Bragg (336 ASA Co C&P, later redesignated company-something of some MI battalion of 525th Gp up in 8-Tango area.
Then to a decent job for a couple years,
then made Warrant and off to Riley again (101 mi) to be punished for my sins. Apparantly that wasn't enough, went to 25th Dimension (Light) at SB, HI. (you don't have to be light to be a light fighter). Side trip to Saudi and Iraq (not nearly as much fun as pleiku). Then, to complete my penance, again to the 24th, this time at Ft Stupid, oops, Stewart Georgia. Had enough fun, retired, worked as a computer geek contractor for a few years, now work as a computer geek snivel servant. Recently got an e-mail from Doug St Denny from Det 8.

Today was the 29th Vets' Day that I found reasons not to celebrate - but I survived it. I was expected to work today, and my daughter had to go to school. Some national holiday! She was curious why no mail was delivered. So, I taught a little history lesson - loaded the kid into the pickup and drove across the Potomac to show her The Wall. We got there well after dark, and after all the politicians had left. We had a long talk ... To all of us who survived - in spite of it all, from Kristen and me ... welcome home!

ETS'd 15NOV75. Went to college at Lock Haven State College in PA. Graduated with a BS in Comp Sci and went to work in the Kodak Research Labs. Got patents. Got inventions. Got laid off. Now a contract/temp systems engineer.
Like to find Bob Cole [from Brazos area, went to school at Texas Tech and went to Thailand after Devens], Mike Greer [from Kentucky], Mike Miller [from LA], and Stefen Beck who I served/survived with in Shemya, and Kathy Jameson [met at Devens before she went to Germany and then to Indianapolis to raise a family].

Sinop 1962
Rothwesten, Germany 1963
out in Feb. 1964

I maintain ever growing lists of people who have served in either Rothwesten, Germany or Sinop, Turkey. Most of these names and info have come from folks like yourself who have contacted me. If you have ever served in either place, I would like to hear from you so that you might help add even more names (and even addresses if possible) to the lists.

Anyone who would like to have a current Sinop or Rothwesten list sent to them, please contact me.

Yes, I lived many years in Kassel as a civilian after my military duty. I still have many friends there, and also have a couple of sons who live there. Anyone planning to go back is welcome to contact me for info.

Ron Sowinski

Thanks Vern- you found Col. John J. McFadden alive and well in Florida for me and we have spoken twice and I have written him a long letter detailing for him exactly how he was such a big influence in my life. I have found out from others that he also had a profound effect on their lives as well. Anyone who would like to correspond with Col. Mac can contact me and I will be happy to give you an address and phone #.

Even though I had a Signal Corps MOS, 31S, Crypto Repair, the ASA units I served with treated me as one of their own. I will always cherish my memories of my first seven years in the Army, where I served in three different ASA units.

Richard(Frenchey) Coulier

Glad to see so many old ASA types. Really didn't think we would ever be allowed to do something like this. It's the age we live in now. It would be hard to stop. Anyway, who cares about a bunch of old spooks anyway? Any old Project Wildbore people around, give me a whistle. Any Bad Assers, especially those from "C" Branch give a call as well. Would like to contact so many different guys. It could happen. Bad Aibling was the only field assignment I ever had and quite frankly it could not have been a better one. Lots of good times at the Rod & Gun Club. I still remember how good the music was with Deakmans (?) Green Apple Quickstep Band at the EM club. All in all the best guys I've ever been around in my life. I am sorry I didn't recognize that at the time. Good Page.
