Anderson, Jay R. SSGT - VMFA-232 Radar and Maintenance Control. I was the first Marine promoted to SNCO at Nam Phong in September 1972. SgtMaj Schloss made it a very memorable occasion, reading a long desertation about  how becoming a SNCO was a major stepping stone in my career and as I embark on this major step in my career, I must "wash" my mind of all thoughts of being anything but a Marine SNCO. As he said the word "wash", My freshly starched utilities were doused with a bucket of hot water from one side and a bucket of ice water from the other. I will never forget MCAS Rose Garden. I retired as a MSGT in 1988 and recently retired from IBM in Rochester, MN. I have been in touch with several people I served with in Nam Phong and would love to hear from others.

My name is Dave Busby and I was stationed at Nam Phong with the Security Detachment from Jan. '73 till the base closed in Sept. '73.  I was a PFC when I arrived but left a L/Cpl. I was in the last detachment to leave and was in the color guard that took the flag down for the last time.  The Thai commander gave us ornate Zippo lighters as gifts.  I was sent to Okinawa and Hotel 2/9 and eventually got out in '76 as a sergeant at Camp LeJeune after doing the rest of my time with H&S 1/8.
My memories include guard duty all over the base and out at the bomb dump where we all knew we were just sacrificial warnings if anything really did happen.  I remember the "bush bunnies" slipping through the wire to offer their "services", lol, and the bus trips to Udorn and the delights of that paradise on earth.  Also the "fuck you" lizards and monkeyballs on a stick.
 
I haven't thought of Nam Phong in many years.  I googled the name one day at school where I teach and was suprised to see this web site.  It certainly brought back a rush of memories.

From working in the rain underneath aircraft, those sweaty bus rides to Udorn, crack of lighting in the middle of the night, boots full of water on the way to the hanger; I never thought that the memories would last a life time.  I was discharged from the Corps with a medical in 81 and moved to Corpus Christ, Tx. where I live with my wife Linda, son Erik, and daughter Jessica.  I retired from Civil Service in 97 and devote most of my time taking care of my family and adding to my resume of speeding tickets on my motorcycle.  Contact @: linda.castellanos@sbcglobal.net   I would get my own email add. but my motorcycles doesn't let me.  Semper-Fi
