The Never Ending Story - Don't Drink and Drive

Don Meyer, assigned to MAAG Taiwan, 1955-1957, sent a nice group of documents and photos he took during his tour.  

Don worked out at Shihmen, along the north coast, on the highway to Camp McCauley. 

If you remember seeing the large Radar Domes off to the left of the highway, very close to the ocean, that was Shihmen.

Interestingly, if you happened to know one of the military men who worked at the site, they had exclusive use of the beach areas inside the military site, and would often invite folks up for a weekend, and arranged over-night accommodations in the Shihmen Hostel, if empty rooms were available.  Couldn't ask for more!  

Don and many others had a nice work assignment at Shihmen. Much later during our time in Taiwan, Shihmen was closed-down and moved to Gold Mountain.

The document below, interesting and a Call to US Forces in Taiwan to "Wake-Up.....

The Document is signed by the MAAG Chief of Staff, obviously the result of a "Staff Meeting " in relation to the incidents happening during the past 2 Months....  

If you place your cursor on the document and then left click on the cursor, the document will enlarger and be much easier to read.
