52nd Signal Battalion 1968-1970

From: Jim Banning, former Sgt

Remote Name:


I was stationed at the Can Tho Army Airfield from March of 1968 until April of 1970. I was a communications center supervisor (teletype). I could have rotated back to the states after a year, but my younger brother was shipped to Nam in 1969 and got assigned to Can Tho also, so I stayed another year. We used to work 12 hour shifts and several times a week, have to stand guard duty at night. Our perimeter overlooked a Vietnamese cemetary. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who might have been stationed with me. My best friend was Joe Salazar from San Antonio, Texas.
