I found this article from the December 17, 1978, issue of the Ocala (Florida) Star Banner. It describes the demonstrations at the HSA compound after the announcement that the US was dropping its diplomatic recognition of Taiwan and withdrawing its military forces. There's also a fuzzy photo of some of the demonstrators in the article.
Les and Barb previously described what it was like to be a US military member stationed in Taipei during that period. Scary times.
As I've said before, I'm told that many of the young people in Taiwan today don't even know that American military folks were ever stationed there. Titojohn sent me an article the other day about direct passenger flights about to begin between Taiwan and the People's Republic. The Gemo must be spinning in his grave.
Life goes on.
