Matsu MAAG Medical Assistance and English Classes 1974 - UPDATED

I ran across two short pieces of color film taken on Matsu showing some of our MAAG personnel in the mid 1970s.

Only parts of the film concern Taiwan MAAG.  To view the Taiwan portion, push the slider and stop at 8:09, where the films begin.

The films show some of the outreach to civilian personnel of Matsu, conducted by members of the Matsu Defense Command Advisory Team (MDCAT).  

Do you recognize any of the folks in the films?

UPDATE:  Scott, by way of a Comment below, called to my attention,  that one of the film pieces from Matsu was taken in the mid 1960s.  I believe these different films were run together because they were from Matsu and not of a particular time period. The US Military folks seen here, served under MAAG Taiwan

Kent,
I found a similar clip with LTC White teaching English. It was taken in 1966. We selected that clip for the American Footsteps in Taiwan exhibition.

Kent,

I bought off eBay a US MAAG lighter. On the other side is the MDCAT logo. I will take some photos and send to you.

I was stationed on Matsu in 1970 and have many pictures of Matsu and the command center. At that time there was only four of us stationed on Matsu. jschauss@juno.com
