SGT (at the time) Tom Browning was already there when the16 of us started pushing tape in June of 1968. He was in charge of our shift.
Tom had been in Taiwan before. Once was in 1965. Later, he served in Thailand before coming back to Taipei and Grass Mountain in 1968.
In April of 1969 until March of 1970, he and his family were down-island where Tom was the NCOIC at Kaohsiung's communications center.
Tom and his wife, Sandy, were kind enough to share some pictures of their time in Taiwan. Most of these were taken during island trips.
