Comments: I served in the 6987th RSM (Shu Lin-kou) in Taiwan as a Chinese linguist in 1958, 1959, and 1960. Part of that tour included service in Detachment #1 at the Joint Operations Center in Taipei associated with the 13th Air Force. Here is my personal information.
Anthony F Beckman
Years of Service: 1957 - 1972
Taiwan Service: 1958 - 1961
After Taiwan, I served 4 years as an instructor at Goodfellow AFB. After 8 years of active duty, I then received an assignment to Da Nang, Vietnam while I was up for re-enlistment, but refused the re-en listment and was discharged. The duty at Da Nang would seem to have been a total waste for a Chinese linguist.
Hello to all my comrads from Taiwan and GAFB.

Comments: I haven't visited the 6987th website in awhile but I do recall that my info at one time appeared on the roster. I was a 203-2 (Chinese) assigned to Link'ou from '65-'66. I attended basic Chinese at IFEL in 1960 and intermediate in 64. At Link'ou I worked in what was then called "P-5". I would appreciate your adding my info to the roster. If you have any further questions, please email me.

Paul Flannery, Dave Cain, Jack Lyons, Pourcher and I volunteered to go to lin-Kou from Clark AFB after spending 3 mos in the P. I. - that was in the summer of 1957.
The tour was 15 mos, but that was extened when the fake crisis occurred over Kin-Min and Matsu to 18 mos. At that time some of the others, Paul and Dave, Cliff Koppleman and Marty Danbrott opted for Germany - Poucher, Bill Bush, and Ed Bocklage and I did another tour in Taiwan.
I married my high school girlfriend in Taipei, the Lin-Kou Chaplain married us, and my daughter, Lynda was born in the MAAG compound hospital - we left for home in 1960.
I now live in San Mateo, CA -when we first arrived at Lin-Kou the road to Taipei was not paved, we rode to town in six-by's covered with red dust - the old Japanese barracks had been kind of renovated so troops were moved out of tents and into them - work crews were called 'tricks' and we worked a three on three off shift - we shared the place with the ASA who had a real E. M. club, which we used as well as our own tiny one room Airmen's club with one dime slot machine and a jukebox - Oh, Bill Buckholtz brought his wife Peach over, and the two of them lived in an apt upstairs from my wife and I. Bill had a red motor scooter and we had some great times at club 63 - Bill stayed in, became a full colonel and retired, now lives in San Antonio. those were the days my friend.

Comments: My father, Dr. Russell R. Lunstrum, Jr., was Chief of Keesler's Eye Clinic at the hospital for 30 years. My brother (killed by a drunk driver) was adopted while we were stationed at Keesler. The story was that his birth father was an international student (Iranian??) there for pilot training. I know the birth father would have been at Keesler in October of 1958 as my brother was born June 6, 1959. I was wondering if the pilots there for training went through the Morse training too or if it was another group. Also...what bases or countries did these international pilots come from at that time? Are there pictures of the pilots like there is for the Morse school? My brother has a son who wants to know what his genetic background is and is the reason that I am trying to find out any history or information I can. Please email me at email@example.com if you can clear any of this up for me! Thanks!
