Comments I was privileged to serve on the famous Trick 2 that fired EXPERT on the M14 because Major Rigo thought we were real soldiers. So we kept our own scores. Everybody on trick 2 fired expert and it went onto our DD214 file. We were also the gold standard as far as intercept quality.

Pat O'Leary - Just checking into your FB page.  I was ASA from 69  to 89 as an 05K4HK2.  I did most of my time in Germany with tours at Rothwesten, Border Sites, Berlin, and Bad Aibling.  I also did a couple tours stateside in various training commands: Devens and Pensacola.
After retiring from the Army, I moved back to California.  After a couple jobs, I got hired by SonicWALL (Later Dell SonicWALL) and they moved me to Phoenix AZ where I live now.
I am also very active volunteering with the Coast Guard Auxiliary.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Grady Olmstead - MOS 72B (CommCenter)

Location Cane Ridge, Tennessee

Years of Service 1968-1971

Duty Stations With my twin brother: Basic Training - Fort Jackson South Carolina AIT - Fort Gordon Georgia First Oversea duty Station (with my twin brother) - 4th USASAFS Kagnew Station Asmara Ethiopia (then) Eritrea (now) Second Oversea duty Station - 7th RRFS (Radio Research Field Station) Udorn, Thailand

Comments When my twin and I graduated from high school (1968) Vietnam was going pretty strong so it was either wait for the draft or join and have a little bit of choice of what we did for our time with Uncle Sam so we joined. Got talked into signing up for the Army Security Agency which sounded a lot better than being a grunt. We went through basic training (Fort Jackson), Advanced Individual Training (Fort Gordon) Signal School (72B) and our first overseas tour (4th USASAFS Asmara) AFRICA together. After working and partying for 18 months over there Uncle Sam decided to separate us. He sent me to the 7th RRFS and my twin (Brady) to Fort Devens where he stayed about 4 months and where it also snowed several times while he was there. So he put in a 1049 for Vietnam which they ready processed. He arrived there in December of '70 and was stationed at the 224th Aviation (BearCat) just outside of Saigon. In working in the CommCenter at Operations I had access to the "Class A" phones there. So when "at work" I would call him to see what he was up to. The hardest part was getting pass the Vietnamese phone operators in Saigon. The first time I called I asked the operator for the 224th and she says "you mean BearCat"? Not knowing they used cover names I said "no I want the 224th" whereas she said again "you mean BearCat"? That time I said "yes" and was connected to the CommCenter at the 224th. After calling him "a few times" all I had to do was ask for Brady and (if he wasn't working) they would go get him so we could talk for awhile at Uncle Sams expense (of course)

Comments Did not realize there were so many ASA MOS's. Be very interesting to know what you all did. Scanned all the names I could find with 05K20 MOS's and came up empty. Too bad, a great group of guys at Kuma, big fun. Like me, they are all half dead by now, but what a ride! At the time, I could not wait for it to be over, but now I think back on what I did and who did it with me and it was a hallmark time of my life. Hope you all had a great life and more to come. Wish I could shake all of your hands.

MOS 67B20, 67N20 Fixed & Rotary Wing wrench & crew chief with standard TS/C

Just ran across this link to Korean ASA Vets. I was stationed at 508th HQ Yong Dong Po from June '67 to 'June '68. 12 months only as a screw up in orders sent me to Davis Station Saigon first. The 30 days there building a giant bunker helped to save the lives of many ASA guys during the Tet offensive Jan 68 I glad to say. At the 508th, I was a newly enlisted 67N20  fixed wing mechanic/crew chief servicing U-6 Beavers and H-23G helicopters. Our pilots were CWO (4?) Howard Wells, Major Jim Beattie from Minneapolis, MN, Cpt (forgot first name) Taylor, and Lt Tom Ryland. I flew with Cpt Taylor to Camp Humphreys & Soc Cho Ri on different occasions, picking up data material from those stations. My favorite was Soc Cho Ri because we could pick up buckets of shrimp to bring back to my guys at Yoido Island which was our base of ops in the middle of the Han River, not far from HQs. I also remember having a small collection of green glass bulbs that the fisherman used as floats on their nets. Looking for Dan Hysell and Al Hite that were part of our crew at the Teeny Weenie Airlines.  Brent Ostwald  (Ozzie)​. Would like to locate Joe Walker who was a friend in Korea and later met at Ft Bragg. Was invited to Thanksgiving weekend in Pittsburgh with his welcoming family '68. Thanks Joe.
