Charles H. Collins Jr. , 1943-2018
The NASAA regrets to announce that Charles "Chuck" H. Collins Jr., vice-chair and treasurer, died peacefully in Ledgewood, N.J., on June 5, 2018, at the age of 74 after a long battle with cancer.  Chuck was born on Nov. 20, 1943 in La Crosse, Wis., and grew up in Florham Park, N.J.  He enlisted in the Army in 1961, serving in the US Army Security Agency. He graduated from Drew University. He was involved in Roxbury GOP and Morris County politics and honored for his military service and civic leadership.  He had a multi-faceted career as a chemist, an information technology consultant, a project manager, IT quality assurance specialist, and most recently the special deputy surrogate for Morris County. Chuck was a devoted husband, father and grandfather with a wide variety of interests.  He served his community as president of the Roxbury Board of Education for six years, long-term treasurer of the National Army Security Agency Association, president of the NJ Arms Collectors Club, recording secretary of the NJ Association of Rifle and Pistol Clubs, and a member of Acacia Lodge 20 in Dover, N.J., and Scottish Rite Freemasonry. He received the Distinguished Military Service Award from the Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Distinguished Achievement Award from the director of ISD, PANY&NH. Recently, his service to the community was recognized in a NJ Joint Legislative Resolution by Senator Anthony R. Bucco and Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco.
The NASAA is dedicated to preserving the history, memories, and friendships derived from serving in the Army Security Agency during the years of its existence 1945 - 1977.  We watched and listened around the world and served in countless countries.  We passed the flag to INSCOM in 1977. May they preserve our fine heritage and tradition of service. ASA and INSCOM soldiers are eligible for full membership in the NASAA.  (The NASAA is a 501(c)(19) nonprofit corporation)
"On January 1, 1977, the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) was organized at Arlington Hall Station, VA.  The formation of INSCOM provided the Army with a single instrument to conduct multi-discipline intelligence and security operations and electronic warfare at the level above corps and to produce finished intelligence tailored to the Army's needs"  Department of the Army General Orders DAGO 25-76
