Comments: Greetings... I was stationed on the "hill" from 1972 until 1975. I have many fond memories of friends that I made while stationed there. Unfortunately, I can't remember most of their names. We had many great times and I especially remember the times we took the long ride on the bus back to the base buzzed or with a wicked hangover!!! I can't imagine a better place to be stationed. A small intimate base, great food and most of those stationed there were great company. As a young 19 year old you can imagine what running the bars and getting to know the girls was like. Anyway, I always wanted to return to Taipai for a visit, but it has changed so much. Anyway glad to see a site dedicated to the memory of the base.

Comments: Greeting I stumbled across this site About Shu Linkou while searcing for something tonight and thought I'd just drop a line. I was a member of the first Marine Detachment assigned to the Naval Security Group Activity, Taiwan from June-December, 1972. There were 15 of us that were on TAD (TDY) from First Radio Battalion, Fleet Marine Forces, Pacific, Kanehoe, Hawaii.

I remember that it was strange for me being on an Air Force Station, but must admit that once the word got out that we weren't there to steal everyone's beer and women, we were welcomed into your "family" as good friends. I especially enjoyed visiting your NCO club (open 24 hours) to just pass the time away in various ways, not to just get "snockered" or drink away the time.

I took my first college course through the University of Maryland there, which led to a later commission and college degree. I also learned how to run up and down the mountain to get back into shape after experiencing an emergency appendectomy shortly after my arrival.

I could go on and on, but I won't. If anyone reading this remembers me, please accept my heartfelt thanks for the small base's huge hosptiality.

Comments: Hello fellow Ditty Boppers, etc.... I was allowed the pleasure of a one year stay at Lovely Shu Lin Kou Air Station During 1974 and 1975. To think I wanted to get back to "The Real World". Boy was I young and dumb.
Some fond memories still exist, and stick In my mind. The Lin Kou club downtown, the membership nights at the club on base. How did the strippers always con a "lifer" into dancing on stage with them so they could get kneed below the belt. That always amazed me.
I was on Charlie Flight, and believe the time frame was from around April of 74 till May of 75
Morse Intercept Operator - 20750?
I would love to hear from anyone who may have been there during this time.
I was wishing I still had my cap from there.
I loved the American flag on one side, the Taiwan flag on the other, the 6987th patch on the front, and of course the devil dog on the back with Chinese and American name.
