During the 1960's the Army had a signal intelligence capability in the Army Security Agency. My Brother Bob trained at Fort Devens, MA for a year as a Morse Inteceptor. He was stationed in Thailand supporting operations in RVN before returning to CONUS to attend Infantry OCS.

Soldiers assigned to ASA were true pioneers and inflicted untold damage to the Communists in Viet Nam and elsewhere. There is an enromous push to declassify a lot of their tactical operations. You should be proud of your brother Mike as it takes a special person to sit inside a windowless room for hours listening to code.

Not all ASA members were confined to a windowless room. I'm sure you know this, as I'm just putting it out there for anyone that wonders by. The ASA SODS are the predecessors to the SOT-A's and they have a very interesting story. Top Secret Missions sits in our team room and is a good read.

Is that a book I can get via Amazon, or an internal publication?
