I lived in an apartment on the 3rd floor in a couple block area where I think most single guys lived. I walked to work and I seem to remember going in the back door of the building.
Security Group spaces were on the first floor at end of hall [to the left at the main entrance]. Our door was a walk-in bank vault door with a key pad and only a few people were allowed in these spaces.
At the other end of hall was the office of NSA Pacific. I think I was the Assistant Comm Chief and worked 7-3 Monday through Friday. Every day about 11:30 I would go to lunch at the Army Club by calling the motor pool for a truck and a driver.
I was there from January 1962 to May 1963 and was chosen to be USTDC enlisted man of the month for January, 1963. I am enclosing a photo of VADM Melson giving me a letter of commendation. The photo and story were in the Taipei newspaper. [Click on image to enlarge]
I remember spending a couple of days at the Peitou hot springs. I was only 20 years old in those days, but I certainly enjoyed my stay there.
