I was stationed at Kagnew Station from Jun 1968 to Dec 1969. I worked at Tract "C". My MOS was "41J20" which was "Office Machine Repairman". I tried to keep the ditty boppers in supply of the "mills" that they treated so roughly.
My wife and I lived off post just outside the back gate of Kagnew Station. Our oldest son was born at the base hospital. We had some fun times there and met up with friends at the "Oasis Club". I tried to extend my tour there but that was not to be. I stayed stateside for a few months at Ft. Devens, Mass. before getting orders for Phu Bai in Viet Nam. I spent my last year in the Army there at the "8th Radio Research Field Station" from Jul 1970 to Jul 1971.
I am going to try to see if I can find some pictures to post of both locations. The only problem is that it has been 40+ years since I took those pictures. They have surely faded as has this old mind I have left.
