Comments: I would like to be added to the Personnel Roster.

I've attached the only document I can find that would attest to most of my time at Linkou (I was actually there from Feb 72 to May 74). My DD214 was issued 18 years after SLKAS so that doesn't include anything related to the 6987th.

I was the radio maintenance tech on Able Flight from April of 72 until February of 1974.

I currently reside in Knob Noster, MO (right next to Whiteman AFB, home to the B-2).

Comments: Greetings:

I wanted to add my name to the 6987th personnel list. I was a graduate of MAFAC in 1970 and was stationed at Shu Lin Kou in 1970-1971. Colonel O. D. Graham was the base commander and his assistant was Captain Molidor. Adrian Misarti and Sandy Randt (both 203's) were at Shu Lin Kou at the same time. After Taipei I was stationed at NSA.

Comments: Hi people, My name is Garie O'Brien AKA "Obie." I was stationed @ Shu Lin Kou from 12-66 to 3-68. I was a 294 Telemetry Analyst and worked all shifts on a rotation schedule. Due to the nature of my job description I didn't work much, there wasn't a slot for me and I found myself with a lot of time on my hands. I spent most of this time downtown and exploring the Island. I maybe slept on base for a month total. I lived in Ghintan on the river with my Chinese girlfriend for the last year. I loved the country and the people and have wanted to go back for the past 47 years. I tried to get discharged there but was refused. The brass said I had too much intelligence in my head and was at great risk of being compromised--LAME!

I now live in Ames, Iowa @ 1308 Idaho Ave. 50014. Phone #515-953-8863 and would love to hear from any of you!

Comments: What a great surprise to be looking over my facebook items and suddenly hit upon this outstanding website.

I was stationed at Shu Lin Kou Air Station May 1960 to Sept. 1961, I was a E-4 A1C, 57150, Fire Fighter. I was in the fire station on 24 hour shifts. I and the SSgt fire chief, were the only two cleared to go into the compound for inspections and in case of fire. I was promoted and became the station fire chief.

The base was rather small at this time. The movie theater was next to us toward the main gate. The mess hall was the other way about a block away, it was at that time a great building. My friend Jesse Root, SSgt. was the mess Sgt. Jerry Brophy, SSgt. was our medic, Jerry was from my home town, Charlotte, Michigan. The barracks were quonset huts, made of metal with lots of windows. I became the theater manager and still served as fire chief. I had a chinese who made the popcorn and even ran the projectors. We had two movies a night, one at 7 and one at midnight, for the shift workers in the compound who ate mid chow then went to the movies.

The swimming pool was behind the Chapel, and between that and the NCO Club, which if you were old enough you could go to.

The trip to Taipei city took about an hour, down that curvy road, in a bus with no air conditioning. In the summer the last mile was thru the rice paddies and in July it was hard to breathe.

I appreciate the website, and hope I can make contact with some of the other support people, and maybe arrange a reunion. Thank you.
