75th/600th USASA Company and All ASA Italy Reunion Information

This page is for ALL ASA Italy comments, discussions and information regarding reunions. Let your voice be heard.

April 17, 2014 -- A "Heads Up" alert. We (Bob Giddens, Richard Anderson, Jim Moran, Merle Houdek, Mel Erman, and Tom Harris) are planning an "All ASA Italy - Last Hurah? Reunion" for Indianapolis, IN for this year. The reunion will be in the time frame of September - November 2014. Bob Giddens is working with our primary hotel choice to see what they may be able to give us in the way of rates and facilities. The exact dates will be to some extent dependent upon the Colts home game schedule -- The NFL has yet to release the 2014 game schedule. I (Tom Harris) will be acting as host. This reunion, like all of our reunions in the past, is open to ANY ASA personnel who served in Italy and their SO. This includes you guys at the dets and other places after the 600th ASA Company was disbanded in 1967/8.

UPDATE 10/07/2014. Reunion CANCELED due to two of the few attendees (myself included) having to cancel attendance, by consensus of the remaining attendees, the reunion was canceled for this year.

I'm sorry to inform all that I will not be able to make the Indianapolis reunion this year and have canceled my reservations.

I don't know if we will ever have another reunion but I want to say I thoroughly enjoyed the ones we did have. It was great to see some of the guys I served with and to meet new people who were with the 600th at other times. I still think the 600th had to be one of the best assignments in the Army.
I want to thank Tom for maintaining this website to keep us in touch. Good luck to all of you and I do hope we have a chance to meet again. Take care.

Arrived at Aviano 13SEP58, to check in and sent to the Verona detachment. (055) My Army enlistee buddy plan person, was Allen Walkowski, and he arrived at Aviano some 6 weeks prior to me, and was stationed there. (058)
I spent the next 2 years working the 055 slot, at Verona, Vicenzia and Livorno, plus a couple of months TDY at Frankfort Germany. Through the years, I lost contact with all except enlistee buddy Al. About 3 years ago, I located one of our analyists Winton B. Kurz, in New York. Last year (2014) he moved to somewhere in Penn., and sorry to say, I haven't heard from him since.
