Ray sent me images of a few items that he brought home from Taipei. The first two have to do with the Meritorious Unit Commendation that was awarded to USTDC for the period 1 May 1977 through 30 Apr 1979.
I hadn't thought about it before, but I wonder if the US Taiwan Defense Command received any other unit awards during its existence. They would most likely have also been Navy awards. Does anyone know of any others?
Next is Ray's certificate of Achievement for his time spent at USTDC.
Finally, here's the chop that he bought while there. These were a very popular item with American military folks and they probably purchased hundreds (thousands?) of them over the years.
