|Fred Nadasdi||Andy Anderson||From Ohio. Was a SP/5 in 67/68. He had been to
Vietnam with an outfit that supported the 101st Airborne. He loved to race his '57 'Vette in
gymnkhanas. It was a 283-4 speed-dual quads. He stripped it down to the fiberglass and
repainted it while I was there.
***UPDATE 01FEB2001*** I was able to contact Fred's daughter and she informed me that Fred passed away in July 1989 from colon cancer. If you knew Fred and would like to e-mail me a message for his daughter or wife, I'll be glad to make sure that they receive it. Thanks....Andy Anderson
|Tom Roach||Andy Anderson||He was from Wisconsin, and I believe it was
Fon Du Lac. Was a SP/5 in 67/68. He had (I think a '60) Dodge. He bought an MGA Twin Cam, that
I think was a '57, to rebuild, and hid the block in his room by sitting it on it's end, puting
the large round wooden end from a cable spool on it, and covering it with a tablecloth and
using it as an end table. He was in Vietnam with an outfit that supported the "Big Red One".
***UPDATE 13FEB2001*** I was able to contact Tom's wife and she informed me that Tom passed away on 11MAY2000 from pancreatic cancer. If you knew Tom, and would like to e-mail me a message for his wife, I'll be glad to make sure that she gets it. Thanks, Andy Anderson
|Ray Budo||Andy Anderson||He was from Saint Louis. Was a SP/4 in 67/68. He bought a '65 Vette convertible 327-4 speed. The engine went "south" on him and Roach helped him to rebuild it.|
|Dave Parker||Andy Anderson||He was from Texas and was a distant relative of Quannah Parker the Indian Chief. Was a SP/5 in 67/68. He read a LOT! He had a degenerative eye disease that was going to eventually leave him blind and wanted to read as much as he could before it happened. He had been to Vietnam, but I don't recall with who,|
|Eugene P. Zeiser||Andy Anderson||Was a SP/5 in 67, and got a direct commission to 2LT while I was there. Helped him with a "do-it-yourself" van hut for a 3/4 ton. All we got were pieces! We had to put it together in the Motor Pool. Ran into him again in 71 or 72. He was a Captain by then and was at NSA where I was working as a civilian. *******APRIL 2005***** Found out that Gene lives in Maryland and talked with him on the phone.|
|John P. Sousa||Andy Anderson||Was a SP/5 in 67/68. He was from Massachusetts, either Fall River or New Bedford. He drove a Gold or Tan Pontiac Firebird. Somehow he always managed to get his deuce and a half into the wash bays first after coming in from the field. He cleaned it right the first time, and always was one of the first people from the company to get off post for the 3 day pass we got for going to the field. He had been to Vietnam with an outfit that wore the MACV patch. ****APRIL 2005**** Found out that John lives in Colorado Springs and works at Ft. Carson|
|Walter L. Lurz||Andy Anderson||Was a SP/4 in 67/68. He was from Dundalk, Maryland. He left the 352nd (after I did) for a tour with the 374th RRC (4th Infantry Division) in Pleiku. He went to Fort Hood Texas after Vietnam, and now lives in Florida. We talk and e-mail each other occassionally.|
|Raymond M. Blais||Andy Anderson||Was a SP/4 in 67/68. He was from Claremont, New Hampshire and I believe that he still lives there although I haven't tried to get in touch with him. He had a '64 or '65 426 Wedge Head Plymouth Belvedere - 4 speed. He went to Vietnam after I did, and was with the outfit that supported the 173rd Airborne I believe. Wicked BIG Red Sox fan! We listened to all of the games of the 1967 World Series together.|
|Harry L. Hage||Andy Anderson||Was a SP/4 in 68. He was from Alliquippa, Pennsylvania|
|Kenneth Dewald||Andy Anderson||Was a SP/4 in 68. He was from Casper, Wyoming and drove a HUGE '59 or '60 Oldsmobile. I have been trying to locate him, but found through the Social Security Death Index that a person by that name from Wyoming had died in 1972. The birthdate also appears to be around the right time as well. His name isn't listed on "The Wall" so I guess that he had gotten out of the Army before he died. ***UPDATE 27MAY09...*** got the following e-mail from Ken's nephew... "Andy Anderson- My uncle was Kenneth Dewald. He indeed had left the Army before his death. He died in an automobile accident in his hometown of Casper, Wyoming in the summer of 1972. Best regards. -Howard Dewald"|

Hey, I was at Carson, 352nd from Feb 68 until may 68. We were suppose to go to Viet Nam with 5th Mech, Johnson cut back troops, only 1st Brigade was to go. I was a 72B in the commo section. Came to 352nd from Turkey (Det 27, Ankara) with George Bailey(Sgt from Texas). Was supposed to go to Viet Nam with 1st Brigade, but switched assignments with a Russell Funke from Wyoming. I went to Ft. Riley, Co C, 318th ASA Bn, coming back from Germany. Me, Toimmy Stewart, Wayne Hays and Jackie (forget his last name, but from Garden City Kansas) and Mike Morgan, from GA. Remember having riot training before Rev. King was shot and being on alert after his death. The only really good thing I remember about Ft. Carson was the morning formation and looking at Pikes Peak, Cheyenne Mt. and the rest of the view... great stuff. Also remember a Sp7 Called "Big John" in the EW section. Well, gotta go, I am supposed to be working, but the ASA sites are neat and bring back a lot of memories, some good and some bad. Take care. Dennis Funk
|Ron Tennissen||Ron Tennissen|| Got this in my e-mail on 26DEC05. Thanks Ron!
Andy, I was at the 352nd from September 1967 until December 1968. I was really surprised when I found your webpage. I stumbled across it while googling for ASA. I am sure I remember you and hope you are doing well. Were active in the local ski club? I graduated from Wichita State University in January 67 and went from there to Ft. Benning for Infantry Officers Basic training as a 2nd LT and then on to Ft. Devens. From there I went to Ft. Carson. Another officer. LT Steve Adams and I completed our training together at Ft. Devens and were both assigned to the 352nd at the same time, September 67. As the notes on the website state the whole company was scheduled to go to Vietnam, with the 5th Mech but just one platoon size group shipped out. I was not married at the time and was disappointed. I heard so many stories from the returing short-timers that I extended a year and volunteered to see what Vietnam was like. While I was in country I was able to spend a day or two with unit from the 352nd. They were attached to the Marines and stationed up near the DMZ at Dong Ha. I spent one year in Vietnam first six months in 509th in Saigon and then last 6-months in Phu Bai. After being discharged from the Army in 1970. I worked as a sales representative for a Kansas City based pharmaceutical company, Marion Laboratories, selling in the state of Arkansas. I moved to the home office in Kansas City. I retired in 1993. I became partner in a healthcare consulting firm working for pharmaceutical companies. I sold my interest in the company 5-years ago. I occasionally do consulting projects for the firm but spend time traveling and volunteering. Please feel free to edit this for posting. Keep me updated. Regards, Ron Tennissen
|LT Ken Bean||Ron Tennissen||He had been to Vietnam once and was commanding officer of the platoon size group that went back in 1969. He was from Overbrook, Kansas. He later went on to dental school in Kansas City. He practiced dentistry in Wichita and later in Dodge City. I have not talked to him but have spoken with a resident of his home town who knows the family. They said Ken is back in Vietnam, their impression, more as a resident than a visitor.|
|LT Steve Adams||Ron Tennissen||He also went with the 352nd unit to Vietnam. I stayed in contact with him for several years. He was from Scottsbluff, NE. Before joining the Army he had graduated from Thunderbird School of Business in Scottsdale, AZ. He went back to Scottsdale and was living there the last time I talked to him. I looked for his name in the Phoenix area phone directory. There were so many Steve Adams listed I didn't call any of them. The business school does not have a current address.|
|SGT John Altman||Ron Tennissen||He lived in North Carolina.|
|SGT Darwin Paskett||Ron Tennissen||He was with the 11th Armored Cav in Vietnam before coming to 352nd. I have not had contact with him but a google search shows that he is living in the Seattle area and works for the University of Washington Medical Center.|
|CWO Les Bodine||Ron Tennissen||Les was a great swimmer. He had been a frogman in the Navy during the 2nd World War, later changing branches and moving to the Army. He used to tell the story of one island invasion in the South Pacific. When he came to the surface along the beach General McArthur was standing there...he was so impressed he became one of McArthur's biggest defenders.|
|CWO Don Wright||Ron Tennissen||Don retired, probably in 1968, and returned to his home Durango, Colorado to raise his sons. I was in Durango about 10 years ago and could not find him in the telephone directory.|
|LT. Noran Nehring||Ron Tennissen||He had also been to Vietnam before being assigned to 352nd. A google search shows he is in the Waukesha, WI area.|
|CPT Richard Kerr||Ron Tennissen||He was company commander during most of my time there.|
|LT Tom Zience||Ron Tennissen||No idea of where he is...but think he was a meterologist.|
|CPT Tom Johnson||Ron Tennissen||I think he replaced CPT Kerr. I think he was orginially from Manitou Springs.|
|LT Bob Plank||Ron Tennissen||He had played basketball for the University of Notre Dame. He was with the unit for a short time.|
|1st SGT Best||Ron Tennissen||He was not a favorite among the trooops. The guy could play the piano and used to play at a club downtown.|
|SSG Williams||Ron Tennissen||He ran the mess hall. (Note from Andy...I remember SSG Williams used to give us the keys to the Mess Hall during the winter when we had to pull "POV Lot Guard". We would wait inside the Mess Hall , warm as toast, until we saw the O.D. driving down the road in his jeep. We would then Beat Feet outta the Mess Hall and begin walking our post. SSG Williams always saw to it that there was a "few extra pieces of pastry" lying around inside the Mess Hall somewhere! Thanks for bringing back that memory with his name, Ron!)|
|????????||Ron Tennissen||There was a red headed company clerk, he had a French last name, a funny guy, wish I could remember his name think it was Beudreaux (not sure of spelling). He used drive 1st SGT Becker up the wall.|
|Dave Franklin||Dave Franklin|| Got this in the e-mail from Dave on 24AUG06. Thanks Dave!
Hi Andy, My name is David Franklin, I was an SP5, 05G20. I came to Ft Carson in July 1967, ETS in Jan 1968. I came to the 352nd from the 420th USASASOD in Fairbanks, Alaska. I remember the company clerk. He got in to trouble because he switched his name 2 or 3 times from orders that would have sent him to Nam. His name was Barbour. He was busted down to E-2 and went to Nam as a grunt, I think.. A few names I remember that are not on your list is; SP5 John Giles, who is on the 05G web sites, SP4David Satterwaitte, nicknamed Sad, was in Germany for awhile and Davis Station in Nam during the 68 TET, SP4 David Taylor, in Nam with 101st Abn, and SP4 Buddha Madison, also with the 101st Abn. S/Sgt Paul Bennett, NCOIC COMSEC during part of 1967, he was with the 1st Cav in Nam, S/SGT Phil McGibney, took Paul place as COMSEC NCOIC and went to Nam with the unit from the 352nd. He belongs to the 05G ASA group. SP4 Sid Proctor, a VN vet from 1966-67, he was from N. C and played a mean guitar, we used to jam a lot at the old house. I donít have any locations on any of these guys but I have a lot of good times with them. Since I was an E5 I was able to get a housing allowance to live off post and 3 of us, Sad, Mike ???, and myself, went together and rented a house on Nevada Ave. Lots of parties at that location. When we left the area, the people who owned the house sold it to Chevron and they put in a gas station. Take care, Dave

|Mike Balogh||Mike Balogh|| Got this in the e-mail from Mike awhile ago. Thanks Mike!
Hey Andy! Saw the entry from Dave Franklin and had to write. My name is Mike Balogh, and I'm the "Mike ???" who shared the house at 509 S. Nevada St. with him and Sad Satterthwaite. We had some fun at that place!! I got to Ft. Carson in the spring of 1967, right out of 72B20 school at Ft. Gordon. I think I was the youngest guy in the company, 19 years old. Learned a lot from all of those "old guys" there! Somehow got sent to Korea in Oct. 1967. Worked in the ComCenter as a 72B20D1 at the 177th which became the USASA Operations Company, Pyongtaek. Was there during the Pueblo "incident". A few names I remember; SGT Aaron Gartrell, SGT Tim Combest, SSGT Bill Walters ( he was at the 177th also), SP5(?) Spencer McBride (I think he and Buddha were buddies), SP4 Dave Iverson, and PFC Terry Tennis. Satterthwaite was from Marion, IND and Iverson was from somewhere on Long Island, NY. I was from Philadelphia, but moved to the Denver, CO area in 1975. Dave, if you're still in the area, I'm in the phone book! Good job Andy. Mike Balogh

Hello Andy, This is Terence P (Terry) Hennessy. My brother was surfing the net and found this sight and forwarded it me. I was amazed to see so many of the fellows from that time. I was saddened to hear of Fred Nadasdi and Tom Roach's passing. I came to the 352nd from the 508th ASA in Korea in June - July of 1968 and did go to Vietnam with the ASA detachmant assigned to the 1st Brigade 5th Mech from Ft Carson. I have been searching through old photo albums etc, looking for pictures of that era. When I find some I'll forward them. It was great seeing this sight, good work.
