Cool site!
Jeff Miller from Nashua, NH
I like what I am able to see so far.
My Dad was in ASA; Tan Son Nhut 1968, Berlin 1970-71, Fort Devens before and after both. I lived on & off Devens and in Berlin. Very Interesting times. Good Job, hope you are able to do more! Thanks, Jeff Miller, Nashua, NH

Confused
Randall Schriver from Glendale, AZ
Am I doing something wrong in my perusing this site? All I see is: Unit-Detachment Name or Location Appropriate each time I key on any subject. Thanks, Randall Schriver.

////////Entire site is under reconstruction as my time allows. Had major site failure last year and I am slowly rebuilding. No time frame to finish -- time avail. Thanks for the visit.

Rich Anderson advises that Tom Syma who served at Det A, Ravenna, passed away recently of esophageal cancer, according to a message from his son, which had been posted on Verne's website. The son, also named Tom, would like to hear from anyone who knew his dad. The older Tom served in Ravenna from around 1964 through '66ish. Tom Jr.'s address is tomsyma@northernweb.

"ASA all the Way"
Les from Gainesville, FL
Good to have an ASA website.
I was stationed at Ft Devens from 1963 to 1966. Worked in Training Aids at the school.
Was transferred to Ft Benning for special classified project.
Enjoyed my time in ASA. Most of the instructors at Devens were college graduates.

056.2, both Korea and Germany
Tom Adams from Rochester, MN
Attended Ft. Devens from 9/56 to 3/57. Assigned to Det 4, Hq co, 301st ASA BN out of Camp Red Cloud, Korea. Actual detachment was about 200 yards west of the Ganap-Ri Elementary School. I was stationed there until 7/58.

Reenlisted and went to Giebelstadt, Germany for about 1 1/2 years. Finished up in Ottobeurn (sp).

I visited Germany again in 2004 but Herzo is now Addidis HQ and wasn't allowed on Giebelstadt because of 9/11. I had much better luck in April of this year. Return to Korea, was able to get onto Camp Red Cloud. I was also able to visit the detachment location and climb the mountain again. It's famous now, dedicated to the 2002 Korea Soccer team.

I've only been able to get in touch with one other person assigned to the detachment, Bob Birch. Any others out there?

05D20 / 30 Spec 5
James (Jim) Terry from Las Vegas, Nv.
Basic: Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. Winter of '64
Ft. Devens 1965
Taiwan - Su Linku & Kaoshung - 10/65 to 01/67
Vietnam - Davis Station - Bien Hoa 175RRU -
- Nui Dat DFsite w/Aussie's - 01/67 to 07/68
90day early out because of extension in RVN

I was a young and timid guy when 1st got to Ft. Devens. By the time I shipped out I was a crazy, wild drinking fool, chasing every skirt I could find. Had plenty of that in Taiwan too. Nothing but great times there! Met some crazy Hawaiians at Su Linku who taught me the fine art of being a ASA Party Animal! - Vietnam was a different story of course. Found a great bunch there too, who were dedicated to the mission, and worked hard to help our troops in the field as much as possible. I know for a fact that we helped save many Army and Marines from being caught in ambush situations out in the bush. Our work over there also helped in plotting B52 strikes at occasions.
--- High regards to all who served! --- ASA never forgotten! ---
