Who's Who from 403rd Special Operations Detachment (Radio Research) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to 403rd Special Operations Detachment (Radio Research). If you were assigned to 403rd RR or you can correct any errors or [ESPECIALLY HELPFUL] identify the assignments for the names at the last page of the list shown as "Assignments Unknown," or if you have any rosters, please let me know by e-mail at (sherman1@flash.net) or by phone at (713) 683-9076 or join the team discussion at the Green Beret Forum.

Narrative Information: 403rd SOD was an ASA Detachment which conducted low level radio intercepts. Field augmentation teams at various levels monitored receiving equipment. These teams had little ability to translate or analyse traffic and they sent this product directly to the ASA Field Stations located in each Corps Area, but some of the 403rd teams did have a translation capability using Nungs and Vietamese military for tactical translation.. There is a SODIERS REUNION organization. For more information, contact Jerry Jeffcoat who also has a video production studio and is putting his movies, slides, photos etc into a single video tape. If anyone has input for the tape, it would be a lot more meaningful to the group than if only Jerry's stuff is shown. See also http://asa.npoint.net/asa403d.htm
