1st Signal Brigade
1st Signal Brigade From a satellite in orbit 18,000 miles above the Pacific Ocean to a courier on a dusty Vietnamese road, the 1st Signal Brigade passes the word into, out of and within Southeast Asia. With more than 16,000 men scattered among more than 200 sites in the Republic of Vietnam and Thailand, the stratcom brigade is the largest combat signal unit ever formed and controls the most comprehensive military communications-electronics systems in the history of warfare. Its mission is very simply put: communications. Since its organization on April 1, 1966, the Brigade has fulfilled this mission by planning, engineering, installing, operating, and maintaining both the Southeast Asian portion of the Army's world wide strategic communications system and extensive area communications systems in South Vietnam and Thailand. All communications entering or leaving South Vietnam must pass through facilities operated by the Brigade, which consists of six subordinate signal groups, five in the Republic of Vietnam and one in Thailand. In the more than three years of its existance the 1st Signal team has provided communications of a scope never before achieved in a combat zone. The primary mission has been to "keep the shooters talking." However, during 1970, the Brigade instituted the "Buddies Together" program. Under this Vietnamization program ARVN soldiers are being trained to take over the highly sophisticated communications systems of the Brigade in South Vietnam.

Subject: 41st Sig Bn
To Whom It May Concern:
I was in the 41st Sig Bn when we landed in Vietnam in the spring of 1965. I believe it became a part of the 1st Sig Brigade, later. However, I’m not sure of that. I was in “C” Co. while, there, and spent most of my time at Cam Ranh Bay. I got out of there, bodily intact (mentally is another story) on 29 Jan 66, the date of my ETS, and flew “home” on the Freedom Bird, which was a hell of a lot better than the mode of transportation that took me, there (troopship). At any rate, I have a lot of questions to ask some of the other EMs that were, there, with me. Perhaps, you could supply some helpful information.
