The Situation in 1972

This news article from 1972 is a fairly good overview of the status of American forces in Taiwan at that time.

It states that USTDC contained "a few hundred" personnel, but I don't believe the number was quite that high when I arrived in 1973.

MAAG had about 300 personnel, according to the article, but the 1972 CINCPAC History included some discussion regarding the possibility of combining MAAG and TDC.  I don't know if that ever happened.  If you happen to know, please leave a comment or drop me an e-mail.
