Thank you, Larry, for doing this for everyone to see, and for those of us who were in Air Force Sec. Service. It's great to find out things that were never mentioned in one place before, even at San Antonio.

Thoroughly enjoyed the first three volumes and am anxiously awaiting the 4th. Having had only two tours in SS I am always confused by the "buzz words" that everybody tosses around. Your books help to put it all in perspective. Keep up the good work.

Powerful...Can't wait for Vol IV...Was in USAFSS from 1965 to 1979. Spent most of my time during that period at Osan both in ground ops and airborne. Hats off to a truly monumental work. :D

Larry -- I thoroughly enjoyed reading the first three volumes of Freedom Through Vigilance. I could scarcely put them down. Brought back memories of people and places from the past. Thank you for researching and writing this history and allowing us to read it. I am looking forward to Vol IV.

Larry, Great job on the first three volumes. I especially
enjoyed the first hand experiences of so many people.
I do wonder, though, why so many unit changes and if they
were worth it.
One responder wanted more about the Turkey sites, Well I
was at TUSLOG Det 3-3 for five months in late 1956. The
site was at Sile (pronounced Shile), but drew per diem
and lived in apartments in Fenerbache a suburb of Istanbul. I was one of the three Russian intercept ops
along with Romanian and Bulgarian. Believe me, I really
enjoyed my time there. The Russian effort didn't work out and me and John Nelson were shipped to Samsun where
we lived in houses still with per diem.

:!rofl:

I admit it, I'm an airborne snob. My only contact with ground ops was a single -D class while I was an airborne instructor at Goodfellow. "The Price of Vigilance" reminded me of what I walked into shortly after that event. I'm waiting now for Volume IV to see what I missed by getting out. Great job, Larry!

Larry, I found your book, "The Price of Vigilance" 1st Edition Jn 2001,exceptionally well done, and enjoyed it cover to cover. Your later books/volumes "Freedom Through Vigilance - History of the USAFSS" add valuable details and pictures. Good to see you are carrying on your tradition as a gifted historian. It would be nice if our Army (ASA) and other Agency folks could contribute a little of their history in SIGINT collection.

Just finished reading Freedom Through Vigilance and although I was a Ground Radio Maintenance Technician, I found the book to be extremely interesting and thought provoking. It made me think back to my days with the 29th RSM at Clark AFB, PI and the many friends I still have from those days. I thank you Larry for devoting so much time to putting down in writing what most of us would not have been able to do.

Larry,
I have just finished reading Vols. I and II of THE PRICE OF VIGILANCE. You have done a great job, and a great thing, bringing the history of the USAFSS to life. Your dedication and loyalty shows in what I have read.
I only wish that you had more on Turkey, specifically, Karamursel, TUSLOG Det. 3, and more on 6901st SCG, Zweibrucken - although through my own research I have not found as much as I would have expected.
These things are not to say that you haven't done a terrific job in researching, writing and compiling USAFSS history. WELL DONE. I am looking forward to purchasing Vol. III in the near future.
Good luck with your fine work on Vol. IV.
I am amazed at your research and particularly enjoyed your interviews with many USAFSS men. Some, I recognize and it was interesting to read what they had to say.

Keep on keepin' on.
Congratulations,
Trish Schiesser ;)
