There have been a lot of changes in the United States Army and the Signal Corps since I was in the old Republic of Viet Nam.

The equipment is different, the uniforms are different, and females now serve in the ranks.

I was given a "Secret" security clearance and trained as a Field Radio Relay and Carrier Equipment Repair Specialist (Military Occupational Specialty 31 L 20), a job which no longer exists, because that equipment no longer exists.

In 1969, I was a private first class in Company "A", 11th Air Defense Signal Battalion, 32d Army Air Defense Command, based at Kleber Caserne in Kaiserslautern, Germany.


Most of my time was spent on temporary duty (TDY), assigned to a repair team at Spangdahlem Air Force Base.


Afterwards, I served in Saigon, Republic of Viet Nam with the Phu Lam Signal Battalion of the First Signal Brigade.
