Following that article, LTC Scott Ellinger visited the area and took several photographs of some of the old buildings. You can view them at this Flickr photostream. Scott sent me this panoramic shot of quarters F202 and F203 that he took a couple of days ago. Click on the image for more detail.
To make things even more interesting, old friend Les Duffin just sent me a list of names of personnel who resided in some of those quarters during 1977. His comments are in parentheses.
If anyone else has photos or memories they'd like to share about family housing in the Taipei area, please contact me: ustdc [at] yahoo.com.F100 Brooksher, D. A., BGen, USTDC (this of course was the AF one-star who was deputy commander)
F104 Carr, R. J., Capt, HSA (He was the Navy captain who was commander of HSA)
F108 DeMartino, F, Maj, USTDC (AF Major, actually Lt Col by then, Frank DeMartino; I think he was assigned to J-1)
F304B Groves, J. E., LTC MGCSF (Actually I knew his wife; she was my son’s teacher at Dominican School. And I’m not sure what MGCSF means)
F107B Harmon, W. E. Jr, CW2 USACC
F300A Kaiser, R. L., 1Lt, 6987ABS/DEM
F103F Landfair, R. W., Capt, MAAG
F106 McLain, C. L., Col, USACC
F109 Norcross, J. C., Col, USTDC
F201 Phinney, J. L., Col, MAAG
F210 Trask, A. F., Capt, MGNA
F305A Trosper, J. H., Lt, NAMRU 2
F107a Wells, J. C., E-8, MAAG
(I’m assuming that numbers like F201 and F210 were single-family dwellings, whereas the ones followed by an “A” or “B” were duplexes. That was true of the BOT houses in Tien Mu as well; one half was “A” and the other “B.”)
