Hi ! I am thrilled to find other folks that know about Kagnew Station and Asmara, Eritrea, Ethiopia where I was born! (1959) My father, Robert A Knapp was stationed there with the Army Special Forces . He was linguist , fluent in Arabic , attended the Army language school in Monterrey prior to being stationed at Kagnew.My mother (Joan) flew over to Asmara pregnant with me in February 1959, I was born early in the base hospital and was a breech birth.
Dad was stationed there from 1958-1960. Was wondering if anyone remembered him? He also had a pal named Stonestreet? Unfortunately , Dad died in 2006 at the age of 69 of a very rare cancer and when he was dying he spoke about Asmara. We talked about it a lot, especially every year on my birthday.I
I would love to hear if anyone knew Dad or just say "Hi". I was there the same time a lot of you were ! :)
