email or homepage address: yarbay@hotmail.com, David's University page

Comments: I was a SP4, 984/05G with the 3d RRU when we worked COMSEC out of Sabertooth and Whitebirch operations during '62-63. Bud O'Donnell a major at the time, was acting CO down from Zama. He was replaced by Capt William E. Gross who was later my boss in K Division, USASATC&S. It was under Gross' guidance that I designed the SEASIA emblem and had the first crest painted by a Vietnamese artist at Sabertooth. The initial brass crests were made by a Chinese artist in Cho Lon. I have one of the original crests back in Seattle with storage things. Names I remember from that time are Ron Barden, Wayne Elliott, Bob Winkler, Ben Tripp, Thayer, Hart, Adams, Johnny Kelly (1SG) and Charley Eichelberger(sp) who was CDR of HHC, 3d RRU and went on to earn two stars. I later returned to the 101st RRCo in '66-67 as a lieutnant down on TDY from ASAPAC. I must have made 4-5 trips during that period and I think during each period there was a coup.
