Bio: Southworth, James – SP5 (Back from Thailand – 1967)
---------Source: OWEN ENTERPRISE (Owen, Clark County, Wis.) 11 May 1967
SP5 James and Mrs. Southworth spent a 30-day furlough at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Claire Southworth, after serving a one year tour of duty at Bangkok, Thailand. They left on the 25th of April for his next assignment at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey as a Microwave instructor at the Army's Communications School.
Following is a copy of a letter he received from his Commanding Officer at the end of his overseas assignment.
"I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for your outstanding performance as chief operator and maintenance supervisor of the 207th Signal Company Detachment "G" at Don Muang.
You have continually displayed the highest standards of professional ability, which is best exemplified by the vastly improved maintenance of your equipment and the training of your personnel; your contribution to the U.S. Army Communications mission in Thailand is reflected by the competence of your equipment.
The inspiration to the other men, the initiative displayed, and the responsibility accepted as both team leader and acting team chief will encourage others to follow your example, and these qualities reflect most favorably on yourself, your Company, and the U.S. Army."
