I was a Russian linguist (98G1LRU) in the 331st
Army Security Agency
Company from November 1981 through March 1984, although by 1984 it had been
re-designated the 165th MI Battalion. I was in the 2nd COMEX
(communications exploitation) platoon. The 331st was part of the 302nd ASA
Bn. We were in Karlsruhe, Germany,
at Gerszewski Kaserne, with a detachment at
Mt Meissner. I
would like to find as many people as possible who were in the 331st, and use
this page as a resource for old friends to find each other. I would also
love to post photos and reminiscences here, so please send me your stuff.
If you were in the 331st or the 165th, please
send me an e-mail with contact
information that you want me to post on this page.
Here are the contacts that I have so far:
Dave Fillingham. "I was in the
331st in 1977 - 1979 - both at Karlsruhe and Mt. Meissner (a 33S) and
returned as a KP at Mt. Meissner in 1981-1982. I married a 98G who was
stationed there - that's how I ended up a KP."

Chuck Shanley Rick,
Nice pics of the mountain. From the looks of them you didn't see the two big
towers the 90 foot next to the mess hall and the 180 foot in the north east
corner with the inflatable balloon. I was there in '66 as a 26K and
installed or work on everything there, including trying to fix the power
converter under the mess hall before we got good power lines from outside.
Nice to know some place like that is still remembered.

People who were at the 331st while I was there might remember the patches
we had made when we were transmogrified into the 165th MI Bn. Thanks to Kip
Webb for sending me the image.
