Memories For This Unit

Best Friends
Bill (Elfi) Houck, Johnny (Velma) Pace, Dewey (Irene) Tweed, Kenneth (Shirley) Good, Thomas Anthony (Tony); (All of whom attended my wedding to Sigrid Sobottka on 7 January 1960), and Jon Huggins.

Best Moment
On January 7, 1960, married Sigrid Helga Elfriede Sobottka, originally from Gelsenkirchen-Buer, West Germany.


Worst Moment
Lost my codeword clearance when I put papers in to marry Sigrid (but, she is worth it).

And then having to destroy my 1952 Mecedes V170 automobile, which had broken down in France in August 1959, and had to be stored at a USAF base. Called on December 30, 1959 by Base Commander that I had come down and sign paperwork allowing them to destroy the vehicle, since had ordered All American forces to be out of their country by January 1, 1960.

Car was placed in a deep ditch, and set afire with gasoline, to prevent anyone from stealing it, or any parts, before it was actually covered up.

Chain of Command
6915th RSM, 6910 RGM, USAFSS, NSA


Other Memories
Transferred to Det. #5, 6910RGM, Hof am Salle, Germany on September 8, 1958, to become sole Morse Code Intercept Operator assigned to that site, at that time. My mission was to establish Intercept frequencies for foreign military targets. Worked with the Easy trick (all day workers). Remained on days until A2C Charles R. Farris reported as assistant in November 1958.
