  • Leading with Dignity and Respect

    Aug 13, 2013

    A hospital tour for a group of Army ROTC Cadets, most of whom were nursing majors planning on entering the Army as nurses, ended in a lesson about dignity and respect. As the cadets toured the wounded heroes ward at the Armed Forces of the Philippines Military Medical Center several differences stuck out, especially to those cadets who had already completed their Nurse Summer Training Program. For cadets like Lauren Graham, who attends Grand Canyon University, it was those differences that got her to thinking. The idea was to make small care packages for the soldiers--something the cadets hoped would brighten their day.

  • Operation STARLIGHT: A Signals Intelligence Success Story, 15 August 1965

    Aug 12, 2013

    Fort Huachuca, AZ. - Airborne Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) proved its value to US combatant commanders with the success of Operation STARLIGHT in August 1965. However, the Army had been utilizing direction-finding (DF) capabilities to locate enemy transmitters since as early as World War I. The concept was simple: upon acquiring a radio signal, DF stations within an established DF net would simultaneously take bearings on the transmission. The point where three or more lines crossed would result in a "fix." When the Army Security Agency's (ASA) 3d Radio Research Unit (RRU) arrived in Vietnam in 1961, they fully expected to follow the same process. The plan was set up a DF net at semi-permanent sites and pass targeting locations to mobile DF teams using AN/PRD-1s. The mobile teams would be able to get as close as five to fifteen miles from the enemy transmitters and produce the necessary fixes.
