Comments: Worked as a 294 at the Hou Keng site from Apr 67 to Jul 68. Had a great time on Taiwan. If I could do it over there is a lot of things I would have done differently though. I'll just say I had too much of a good time while on the island. Great memories and great friends I'll remember always.

Comments: Taiwan, Aug 1957 through Oct 1958, Intercept Operator at Linkou. Our unit was the 6925th which became 6987th during my tour of duty. Played basketball on the base team and we won the league in 57-58. Still in contact with several of my associates from the good old days. I am a Life Member of the Badge Of Honor Association and have returned to Taiwan twice, once in 2004 and again in 2008 for the 50 year anniversary of the Aug 23, 1958 bombardment of the outer islands. Our ROC friends treated us like hero's while attending the many functions they held for us. The Taiwanese people are wonderful folks and they did appreciate all we did for them in those trying times.
