I was wondering if you ever contacted any of them for information about Sinop in the 1964-65 time period. Just in case the info was lost in cyberspace I will include it again in this letter. Wally Jones, Ralph Vance, Wayne Inman and Bob Ramage. Bob Ramage was the NCOIC at the Point Site when I arrived and is now retired so should be easy to reach. Wayne is a long distance trucker and unfortunately is rare! ly home. Wally is still hard at work. Ralph Vance is probably roaming around Tennessee with his grandchildren. Keep up the good work. Best regards. You are very good at jogging old memories and I am [expecting] great things from you with these guys. Brian [Brian - I'm sure that when you contacted these vet's that you informed them of the DOOL website, http://dool-1.tripod.com and that if they are interested they will be contacting me. I simply do have the time to contact everyone and will appreciate it you will contact them and write up your findings and include it in a future DOOL- - -gH]

I keep trying to find some of the fellows from that time but haven't had any luck. Regarding addresses my email and snail mail is still the same. Later- Jerry Anderson Det27

Please be sure that I receive a Det 4 hat. I served the first half of my tour at Det 27 and the second half at Det 4. While the off duty experiences at 27 were far more colorful, the mission at 4 was more memorable. Here's a little perspective that the Iraq "insurgency" brings to mind. About a dozen of us were transferred in the summer of '62 from Det 27 to Det 4. We left in the wee morning hours in three duce and a halves. The first portion of the trip is across a powdery desert; then the road climbs into the mountains. At some point the road ! switched back through a mountain village at the top of a ridge. As little convoy wound its way down the slope through the heart of the village, a gaggle of young boys looking to be from 8 to 12 years old started running along side the trucks. As they ran they hollered, "Hey Joe, money. Hey GI, give me candy!" Several of us threw coins and the boys scurried to get them. As we wound down the mountain they were on the road above us, and from their elevated position, they threw rocks at us. Richard J. Arena

He really enjoyed talking about his tour at Det 27 and said that he was to Sinop several times as the S2. I informed him of the DOOL and he immediately requested a copy of the DOOL since he doesn't have a PC. I contacted Lowell Mix about making contact with Colonel Clark. He agreed and will visit and write up his findings and submit it for inclusion in a future DOOL.

Just wanted to take a minute and thank you for all your hard work in keeping everyone in touch with their past. I guess it's primarily an ego thing, but its fun seeing my BIO in print on your DOOL newsletter. Now that its out there, I wish I would have spent more time on spelling and proper punctuation!! Its been great this past few weeks talking or E-mailing some my friends that I knew so intimately all those years ago. It seems like they all have done great and are happy. Looking forward to meeting you in person in September. I have a brother and a few friends in San Antonio, so it all fits. I'm so glad the shuttle! made it back this morning with all passengers safe. I am always truly amazed at their dedication and knowledge. Its our future and it makes me proud to be an American in a time when I have such doubts about so many of our other agendas. Thanks again, Bill

MULDER, Warren W (Mo & Willie) YOB 1937 RA17556695 E3-E5 058 Tk#4 Det 27, JA61-SE62, (Cheryl-div), 255 5 St NE Apt 9, Primghar, IA 51245, 712-957-0821, firstname.lastname@example.org
Contacted Warren Mulder in August 2005. He enlisted at Sioux Fall, IA for duty with the ASA. Took basic at Fort Leonard Wood and then on to Devens for dits and dahs. Was sent to Bad Aibling in September 1960 and volunteered for a transfer to Det 27 in January 1961. He enjoyed trying to remember names of old ex-058 friends that he knew at Manzarali. Laughed when I ask him if he remembered Chicken Hawk. Said, of couse - everyone knew Henry Coyle and that he would bet on most anything including on what side of a post that a bird would "poop" on or how far a camel could spit. Mentioned Dick Gorsky, Robert Wallace, Harold Probert, Ataturk Armstrong, Bill Cowie,John Biehl, Bob Frye, John Berner, Bob McPhee. Said that Tom Eby talked about re-upping. Informed me that Mulder is a Dutch name and that he took a vacation to Holland as well as Athens. Said that he "walked thru" the Kari-hana 3 or 4 times while at Det 27. He chucked when telling me this. Warren Mulder sent me 3 trays of slides that were taken during his 1961-62 tour at Manzarali. I will bring the trays to the reunion and show them in the hospitality room. There are slides of Joe Kelly, Davis, Scooter, Jack Shade, Jim Harasty, Bob Kennedy, Robert Ray from TX, Roger Browder and his sewing machine, Booger Levy, Tom Eby and many other ex-058's from Trick #4 therein. After his discharge went back home for a visit, but soon hooked on with a grain company and worked there for 35 years and was forced to retire when he had heart surgery. Informed that he is having medical problems and just got out of the hospital with a blocked bowell. Has diabetes and kidneys are failing. His sister-in-law informs that any ASA friend of Willie (we call him Wil! lie, among other things!!!) can communicate with Warren by sending your message to her at email@example.com and they'll get the message to Willie.

PAULEY, Robert S., YOB: 1952, CPT, Inf Public Affairs Officer, Det 4, OC86-JL87, (Christine), 1324 Red Oak Plantation Dr., Ballwin, MO 63021, email@example.com - [edited] Once again, thank you for all you do to keeping FS Sinop alive for many of us. My memories are good and it was probably the best year of my life serving on The Hill. As an Infantry Officer (0-3) I was teased a lot by you "spooks". Although when we had to inspect the airfield runway at night for booby traps and mines everyone was asking this Infantry guy lots of questions of HOW do I inspect the runway without blowing myself up? I wish more of my fellow soldiers and sailors who I served with during 1986-87 on The Hill took more interest in - Bill Simons Det 4 website and your DOOL's - and staying in touch. - I have an INSCOM magazine with the feature st! ory being Sinop. I just have to dig it up. When I find it I will send you one. I also have lots of pictures (being the Public Affairs Officer) - I will dig them out and send them to you.
Col. Bill Walters was the CO of Sunny Sinop when I was there. I enjoyed working for him. He was a strict commander but always fair - he was a "by the book" kinda of guy. Mostly he really cared about all of us. Here is an example: One of the officers suggested that we officers (about 30 of us) chip in and buy McDonald Big Macs for all the enlisted personnel on the HILL for Christmas in 1986. There was a McDonalds in Instanbal that the pilots who picked up mail once in awhile had the time to visit. Well we thought maybe the pilots could bring them back (265 Big Macs) and we could surprise the soldiers and sailors with a Christmas present from the officers. Col Walters gave the go-ahead and the project proceeded. It involved getting permission from the McDona! ld National Headquartes in the states to buy Big Macs without the sauce. The sauce had to be put on at the HILL because we were afraid that the sauce might spoil on the 2 hour plane ride. Well the plane landed and the officers put on the sauce and distributed them to every enlisted man and woman on the FS. This was a tremendous moral booster especially at Christmas because it brought a little of home to everyone. It was such a hit that many people pinned their empty boxes to their walls and enjoyed the aroma. This is only one story that I have of the things we did and the activities Col Walter let us do for the soldiers and sailors. He was also kind and gentle - he called me to his office one day and told me that I had not been selected for promotion to Major. This meant I had to leave active duty (I was a ROTC commissioned officer) and go into reserve status. Of course this information hit me very hard - I had tears in my eyes when he told me. Col Walters used! some very kind words to make me feel better. He is a guy I would follow down the barrel of a cannon. Well I will stop rambling and go look for my pictures now. I also have to think for awhile why the people who served in the 70s and 80s don't take interest in the Sinop adventure.

In the last three weeks I've corresponded with three great friends who I haven't heard from in 45 years. And then there's my good buddy Billy Junkin who's called me every year since my accident. Reading the newsletter I saw another good friend, Larry Hull. Larry sat in front of me in 058 room 1. I sat at the first receiver as you walked int! o the room. We did this for 14 months. As long as I knew Larry, he was going back to marry his girl from Parkersburg, W.Va. Her name was"Sheila" Maybe things changed. Scooter

Anyway, hope all is going well with the reunion planning and you locating / getting in touch with folks. Take care, Dick Rudell
Oh yeah, I remember Terry Braho, Henry (Chicken Hawk) Coyle, Robert Wallace, Melvin Ray, Mo Mulder and Russell Davis from Chicago. As for my life since the Army, I went to Community College after Communtiy College while working at Lockheed Aircraft as a sheet metal trimmer; Royal Typewriter as a shipping and receiving clerk; Shakey's Pizza Parlor as a bartender; a fabricator at a family owned business manufacturing skylights, custom signs, and wall decor; then in 1967 I became a Los Angeles policeman and spent thirty-one exciting, sometimes terrifying years as a street cop, public affairs officer, detective, and detective supervisor. I retired from LAPD in 1998 and worked for a while as a hearing officer for the City of L.A. adjudicating contested parking violations, impounds, and bootings. Then I worked with another retired cop doing assessments of school security forces to determine what training they nee! ded to be in compliance with state mandated requirements. The phone didn't ring off the hook in that venture. Then I worked a Court Security Officer for the U.S. Marshals, transporting bad guys from the cell block to court, babysitting them in the hospital and working in the Marshals Comm Center. Boring. Then in 2001 I went back to being a cop again as a DMV Investigator for the State of California. That's where I am now, doing identity theft and fraud investigations, investigating car dealer fraud, and other various and sundry crimes. I'm doing more police work at DMV than I did at LAPD. We file a lot of felony perjury cases, do extraditions, serve search warrants and assist other agencies with our expertise in counterfeit drivers licenses and registration documents. There are only 200 of us in the entire state. I work out of the L.A. office, but we often travel to other districts to assist other DMV investigators with search war! rants and other tactical situations. One of these days they'll discover I'm senile, take away my gun, badge, cuffs and kick my butt out the door. My hobby is my two old cars-I have a 56 and 57 T-Birds. They're money pits, but they are fun to work on drive and show off. Been married to the same woman since 1972 - have two kids, a son 30, who is a special effects technician in the local movie industry and a daughter, 24, who is just starting her 3rd and final year at Pepperdine Law School in Malibu. Neither is married and I have no grandkids. That's about it since I got out of the Army in '62. In summary, a career cop and old car nut. Ah yes, I like my beer, too
Jack - It was great to hear another voice (read an email) from someone from the past. Shade: Hey Dick Rudell what ever happened to Jerry Hickey? Rudell: I have no idea what happened to Hickey. When Dan Borders was alive I asked if he had heard from Jerry, being a fellow Texan (from Amarillo, as I recall) and Borders said he hadn't. He told me that Hickey was porbably shot by someone's jealous husband or lover somewhere down the line. Shade: Did the 059 who was going to OCS ever make it? Rudell: The 059 who went to OCS was the prematurely gray Harold Hudgins, as I recall. I think he made it while we were still at Site 23. Shade: Do you remember the second ugliest man on post - William Stanley Hamilton the ugliest man was the fireman. Boy was he ugly. Rudell: Ah yes, William Stanley Hamilton, aka Wombat. I heard Probert is in Las Vegas now, and ailing. And I also remember Harasty. As a matter of fact, I have a picture of you two and one or the other has the other in a headlock. I'll try to find it, scan it, and email it to you. Names keep popping into my head all the time. There was a guy with the last name of Cassese, his first name was William, I think. Maybe it was Anthony. Oh hell, I don't know. Another, an NCO (Sgt.) with the last name of Hora. I think maybe he was the ugly fireman you referred to.
Wish I could make it to the reunion, but can't do it this year. I'm still working full time and already blew my vacation time. Maybe the next one if I'm healthy.
Well, gotta go. It's time for my dose of Geritol.
Take care, Ala's small a, Dick

IDENTITY THEFT VICTIM ACTION: Identity theft is considered to be the fastest growing crime in America. According to the Federal Trade Commission, the number of identity theft incidents reached 9.9 million in 2003. If you suspect that you have been a victim of this damaging crime, it is important to take action right away. A few weeks could be the difference between a simple credit card fraud and an all out identity attack. If you receive a bill for something you or your family obviously did not charge take the following immediate actions:
Step 1 - 10 minutes: Call the creditor to notify them of the fraud right away. The creditor should reverse the fraudulent charges and lock your account. You should have photocopies of your credit cards and credit contact numbers stored in a safe place just for this kind of emergency. Be sure to record the times, dates and names of the people you contact in a log for future reference. An excellent Creditor Contact Worksheet is available at https://www.truecredit.com/help/learnCenter/fightingIDTheftWS.jsp?mn=50275popup=true for use in keeping track of your contacts. A copy is also available as TAB 5 of the RAO Bulletin.
Step 2 - 10 minutes: Your next step is to contact the credit reporting agencies to report the crime and request that a 90-day fraud alert is placed on your credit report. You only need to contact one of the three bureaus have fraud alerts placed on all three of your credit reports. Contact information for the credit bureaus is:
Experian: 1-888-EXPERIAN (397-3742); www.experian.com
TransUnion: 1-800-680-7289; www.transunion.com
Equifax: 1-800-525-6285; www.equifax.com
This 90-day alert will notify creditors that you may be a victim of fraud and advise them to verify your identity before opening any new accounts. This alert also entitles you to a free credit report from each bureau for your review. Fraud resolution experts with the credit reporting agencies can also help you check your credit data for other signs of identity theft and can help you restore your account security. Don't forget to record the results of your contacts in your identity theft log.
Step 3 - 10 minutes: Your last ten minutes should be spent on the Federal Trade Commission's Web site http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/pubs/credit/affidavit.pdf filling out an ID theft affidavit. A copy is also available as TAB 6 of the RAO Bulletin. Once you complete this affidavit worksheet, you can use it to report fraud to creditors and can keep it in your records for future reference. If your identity theft goes beyond credit card fraud, you should also contact your local law enforcement agency to file a police report. Add copies of your affidavit and police report to your identity theft log and store these documents in a safe place. How quickly you spot and report identity theft can make all the difference.
After 30-60 days, check your credit reports and financial accounts again to see if there are any new signs of identity theft or records that still need to be removed. Print and complete a new version of your fraud worksheet and keep it in a safe place with your other fraud resolution records. Don't let a thief steal your credit again. Purchase a cross cutting shredder to destroy sensitive documents before throwing them away. Install a locking mailbox and keep a close eye on your account statements for signs of new fraud. One of the best ways to guard against fraud is to sign up for a credit monitoring service. Most services include Identity Theft Insurance, so you know you're covered.

AGENT ORANGE ELIGIBILITY: Military retirees, who served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1975 or Korea in 1968 and 1969 are presumed by the Veterans Administration to have been exposed to Agent Orange and thereby are entitled to disability benefits for specific health conditions associated with the herbicide. It doesn't matter how much of that illness is a direct result of Agent Orange. The pre! sumption is a blanket presumption for the years noted. You do not have to prove it was connected. If you are interested, you will need to have an Agent Orange registry exam (available at the VA). A registry is not required to receive VA health care compensation nor does it lead directly to compensation. It is a step into VA Health Care. For an Agent Orange registry exam contact the nearest VA facility which can be found in the blue pages of your telephone book under Government Offices or consult your own physician and refer your physician to the Veterans Health Initiative (VHI) at www.va.gov/vhi for insight into Agent Orange issues. For more information about Agent Orange, including VA policy changes, listed health conditions and disability benefits, visit www.va.gov/agentorange. [Source: Fort Gordon Retiree E-Notes, JUL 05]
Some military veterans have not received full burial honors because they do not have their discharge documents when they died. Since 1950 the discharge form has been called DD Form 214. That document went by other names prior to 1950, but they all serve the same purpose. When a veteran dies, the family provides a copy of DD Form 214 or equivalent discharge documentation to the funeral home which uses it to arrange for an official U.S. flag, honor guard, grave marker and burial in a national cemetery, according to the veteran's service level and last wishes. But, problems can arise with veterans who do not have copies of their discharge certificates available at the time of death. For more information on obtaining a discharge form, contact your county's veterans services officer. Learn more about requesting a replacement of your DD 214 Discharge Documents and other military records.
Q. What is the common term for someone who enjoys work and refuses to retire? A. NUTS!
Replacing Military Records
Have you lost important military records and don't know how to replace them? Learn what to do if you lose your discharge, separation, or other papers.
If discharge or separation papers are lost, duplicate copies may be obtained by contacting the:
National Personnel Records Center, Military Personnel Records
9700 Page Blvd., St. Louis, MO
Specify that a duplicate separation document or discharge is needed. The veteran's full name should be printed or typed so that it can be read clearly, but the request must also contain the signature of the veteran or the signature of the next of kin, if the veteran is deceased. Include branch of service, service number or Social Security number and exact or approximate dates and years of service. Use Standard Form 180, "Request Pertaining To Military Records," available from our site (see instructions below), VA offices or at the VA forms web site (http://www.va.gov/vaforms). It is not necessary to request a duplicate copy of a veteran's discharge or separation papers solely for ! the purpose of filing a claim for VA benefits.
Q. What's the biggest gripe of retirees?
A. There is not enough time to get everything done
Standard Form 180 and Replacing Records
Fortunately, the paperwork involved in requesting records replacement is relatively simple. The process is as follows:
- First, get a copy of Standard Form 180, Request For Military Records.
- It is not necessary to request a duplicate copy of a veteran's discharge or separation papers solely for the purpose of filing a claim for VA benefits.
- Remember to either type or print on the form.
- Fill in the individual's name, social security number, and date and place of birth in section 1, blocks 1 through 4.
- Provide the dates of service in the applicable spaces in section 1, block 5.
- Indicate whether or not the individual is deceased in section 1, block 6.
- Indicate whether or not the person retired from the military in section 1, block 7.
- In section 2, indicate which medals need to be replaced.
- Record a return address and then sign section 3. Only the service member, guardian, or next of kin may sign this form.
- If possible, include a copy of the discharge or separation document, WDAGO Form 53-55 or DD Form 214.
- Mail the completed form and supplementary documents to the appropriate address, as detailed on the back of SF 180.
The National Archives and Records Administration receives many requests, and a response may take six months or more. If complete information about the veteran's service is furnished on the application, VA will obtain verification of service from the National Personnel Records Center or the service department concerned. In a medical emergency, information from a veteran's records may be obtained by phoning the appropriate service:
Air Force, 314- 538-4243
Navy, Marine Corps or Coast Guard, 314-538-4141.
