Comrades in Arms:

First Signal Brigade
Please be sure and enjoy watching, in "FULL SCREEN" mode, this series of video recordings, which was generously submitted by a number of military war veterans, and which was posted on the computer Internet at the YOU TUBE web site by Howard Hickman, who currently resides in El Cerrito, California.

In December of Nineteen Sixty-Nine (1969), I was assigned to Company "B" of the Phu Lam Signal Battalion, a component of the First Signal Brigade, located within a suburb of the capital city of Saigon, in the old Republic of Viet Nam, working as a Field Radio Relay and Carrier Equipment Repair Specialist (MOS 31 L 20).

No, I'm NOT in any of these videos.

I was only at Phu Lam for a few months, and then I went up North to the 178th Maintenance Company at Dong Ha, and later, to the 501st Signal Battalion (Airmobile) of the 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile)  "Screaming Eagles", headquartered at Camp Eagle, just West of QL-1, near Hue and Phu Bai.

501st Signal Battalion

Thank you.

1800 Beach Drive, Unit 311
