Re: 2nd/71st ADA - Korea

When were you stationed there. I worked as training NCO, and company clerk as well as working on site as crew chief when needed. Worked for 1SG Cato. Like to here from you.

Re: 2nd/71st ADA - Korea

Your name sounds familiar. SSG Bill Phillips when there. I worked in training room, on site when needed, and then took over as company clerk when John left. I was there when the truck when over with some of our guys in it. Like to hear back from you.

Here's a link to a Facebook page which is all about those who served in the 2nd (Hawk) Missile Bn of the 71st Air Defense Artillery in Korea. Check it out and add your photos and experiences to the page. You may find someone you know there.

I personally rode on the truck as they sprayed A Battery.
For those who broke down the hill and went north and set up again as a timed exercise this would put you on the DMZ. You would then be consider a DMZ vet for the purpose for claims for agent orange.

Tac site PLL clerk

Re: 2nd/71st ADA - Korea

Just got to see your reply about being there at D/2/71 . Cato was the older 1SG who never came out of the office except to go to barber shop or go to mess hall. We had the big black E-7 mess SGT who was hell of nice guy. I believe I remember you name. I took over company clerk when John left, and still worked tac site when had too as crew chief.

Re: 2nd/71st ADA - Korea 71-72

I was assigned to B Btry, 2/71st ADA from 1972-1973 and I was present on the Tac-Site when they sprayed the follage from a chopper. Have no idea what type insecticide it was , but no ones talking. Sprayed that stuff all over the site

Re: 2nd/71st ADA - Korea

If yo look on face book you will see Bill Rankin (William Rankin) he was 24E if I remember right. I haven't seen him on this site. Did you stay in Elpaso, or different state.
