I just received your URL overnight and have been listening for quite a while this afternoon. I’ll save it as a favorite and share it with my Viet Nam acquaintances, vet organizations, family and friends. Thanks for this service you are providing us.

Looks as though you left country and Davis Station the month before I arrived: November 70 to November 71. MOS 71L2O. S-2 shop in rear of building at White Birch.

This made me flash back on a phenomenon called Lone Star radio, which broadcast from somewhere on Tan Son Nhut and, if I remember correctly, was for emergency notifications. Played music 24/7. Point was to be on the air non-stop. Lot of guys at Davis Station, where I was billeted, had it playing all the time. Then when the crap hit the fan, the music would stop and Lone Star would get down to business. I can still remember the alert: “This is Lone Star. Tan Son Nhut Air Base is under Security Condition Red. Take Cover.” Played over and over, continuous loop.

Great site… 7 years Army (68-75).. 2 1/2 consecutive years on the ground in III Corp SVN with IIFFV Artillery ( 8th 25th TAB and D battery 5/2 and D-71st Quads and Dusters). Sometimes all the real home company was a battery powered portable radio sending out the tunes. Always packed extra batteries for those nights in our bunker or around our firebases. It was amazing how much a 1.5volt battery was really worth. Thanks…. Vietnam was 44 years ago and sometimes…. just last night. Welcome all my Brothers and Sisters….. no matter which war/conflict/police action… oh hell…. WAR!!!! all be well…. and watch for the final “signal light” to all be together again.

Great site. I listen to you everything I am on the computer now. Living in Austin, Texas after 20 years in the USAF. I was deployed to Saigon in 1964, then back and forth from Shaw to Udorn and back to Saigon. I was photo recon with the 20th TAC. Left for good in June 1966 headed for France just in time to close it down.

I think you'd be surprised how durable those reel to reel tapes can be. Assuming you used some good SCOTCH or other brand, the mylar tape probably has not turned brittle if kept boxed and away from dust/dirt/moisture. The tapes I have go back to that era and still play well, too. More difficulty is encountered in keeping your reel to reel player running over all the years.

Wasn’t sent to Nam. Made it up to 7th Artillery Group, Thule, Greenland. I was assigned as a motor pool dispatcher. I spent my remaining time at the 31st Artillery, Pittsburgh Air Defense, as a chopper mechanic. We had a great commander in chief back then, J.F. K. Thanks much for the tunes that fly my memory back.

Danang 65-65. Those Boots Are made for walking and Ma Ma Sang base was always being played the club Juke boxes, they were both reverse side hits. Nancy Sinatra and Jonny Cash. Gun ships would fly at night attact enemy sites 1 C-123 had loud speakers they would play Rock And Rolls songs . At times we would listen to Hanoi Sally? she would always say we were losing the war. I have a recording of her.

Edgar, I believe it was Hanoi “Hanna”…at least that’s what we called her in 1966 out of An Khe. She would read over air the names and ages of the casualties, straight from Stars and Stripes I believe.

“names and ages of the casualties, straight from Stars and Stripes”
Around ’70 or ’71, S&S got smart and stopped printing casualty lists which included so much detailed information. IMHO, Hanoi Hannah was a Tokyo Rose wannabe. LOL

Hannah – sounds like banana! And she was a fruit! More of a fruitcake. I only heard her a few times – I was enjoying Armed Forces Radio through most of my year (1966) in the Mekong Delta – where there were no American Troops! Those guys I served with in Soc Trang sure looked like Americans to me!

A1C Medic with 377th Combat Support Group Dispensary/Aerovac, USAF, Tan Son Nhut AB, Saigon (next to theater and across from Army heliport on edge of base). Feb 69 – Feb 70. Spent first few weeks in Aerovac unit and then ER as tech and ambulance driver (EMT) and lastly in sterile supply.

Worked as bar back at NCO club part time for a while and went out with Security Police perimeter patrols at night for some period of time, having gone through most of SP school before sent to medical tech school. I beat my SP classmates to Saigon by several months.

I’ve got reel to reel tapes of armed services radio broadcasts and, because of proximity to two radar sites on TSN, there are constant, regular “blips” on recordings.

Definitely took some rockets. Seemed like most of them passed overhead on their way to the Bien Hoa Air Base where they could do some damage on the flight line.
