The photos on this page were contributed by Stan Allen, who shipped over on the General John Pope as part of the 449th Signal Detachment (Avionics) and the original deployment of the 161st AHC.

The 449th Signal Detachment had been at the Atlanta Army Depot during 1964-65. While stationed there, the 449th serviced many of the Hueys from Fort Rucker.

Now days, Stan and his wife Margaret make their home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
