Re: HAWK - Battery D, 8th. Missile Battalion, 3rd. Artillery, APO 96331, Tokashiki

I served from Nov. 1967 until Nov. 1968, my MOS was 24F20. I worked on the PAR, ROR and BCC, the service members you referred to were gone when I arrived. My memory isn't what it used to be, I wish I could remember my section Sargent's name that left about the time I arrived. He was a E7 that liked to show you differ tricks/magic that he was very good at. I just wanted to respond that there's still a few left that served on Tokashiki, I found this site while looking for pictures.

Hi, I was on Site 14, B-8-3, 16D/16H, from 8-66 to about 2-68, then back to Bliss to go to Thailand with the 22nd ADA, but it was disbanded and I spent my time at McGregor until I ETS'd in 12-68. Did you know a guy named Bud Gump, SP5, launcher, 16D. We both made E5 on the same orders. He was a great guy from West Virginia. Went thru AIT and 18 months on the rock with him, but he was extended and sent to Tokashiki. Would really like to know what happened.
