Comments: I was assigned to the 181st Signal Depot, as a radar repairman from June1960 to July 1961. The radar project was cancelled after we arrived in country. I ran the electronics supply room for a while and was the Battalion Commanders driver for a while. I seem to remember the nearby village as Synchon-nee but have not been able to verify that. Would like to talk with anyone that served in the 181st.

Comments: Worked at the MARS station (AD4BX and later, AB4BX) at the 181st with Sgt. Joe Brochon, et. al.
Commanding Officers were Maj. J Mahoney, later relieved by Lt. Col J. Cooperhouse.

Would like to find Larry Shimamura, (Maui, HI), Ed Young (Petosky Mich at that time), and Won Young Duk (KATUSA) who served there then.

Also did TDY time at K-14 MARS station (AI3AX and HL9KR) while Airman Tom Williamson was hospitalized and to an A.I.S.S. outfit (can't remember their 4 digit unit number) further up MSR 2.

181st was in Bup Yeong in those days, next to the 74th Ordinance Co. and the 55th QM.

Two compounds down from 121st Evac Hospital and the 8057th Replacement Depot.

Have and will share some photos of both our compound and surrounding area.

Deployed and returned to ZI on the USS Gen. Wm. A. Mann.
