C. Townsend US Army, I am humbled by the history of the Unit, which before now, was unknown to me.  All I did was run the Mess Hall at 167th in Vicenza for a few months, before being transferred to Bde. HQ in Mannheim, Germany. I continued to visit and inspect the 167th regularly, until I retired in 1993, just months before the Unit's final deactivation.  I'm in awe of the members I've read about here, and though I don't feel worthy to polish your boots, I'd be happy to cook you all a great Army breakfast sometime.  Carole Townsend, SFC, Retired 167 Sig Co, 2nd Sig Bde Caserma Ederle, Italy

John L. Thompson























Army, My father, John L. Thompson, was in the Army for 27 years, having served an additional 4 years in the Navy from 1939 to 1943. He gave this country 31 years of service, and served proudly. He passed away on April 15th, 2000, thumbing his nose at the IRS! What a good spirit he is!! I came across this sight trying to find something about Kafertal, Germany. I lived there from June of 1957 to June of 1959, while my father was assigned to the Benjamin Franklin Post, near Kafertal. I am now 55, and I am operating from a memory bank of a pretty small child. I have older brothers and sisters who may recall better than I the details of our housing location. I will ask them to help me with details. When I found this sight, and I reveiwed the information, it was clear to me that Dad was connected to this Corps, having served in Korea, Japan, Germany and Vet Nam, all the dates matching his dates of service and being away from home -- except for his assignment to Germany. We all lived in Germany. I miss the old goat so much. What possessed me to come to the computer today and type in Kafertal, I do not know. But Dad's spirit is pretty strong and just as stubborn as ever. Sadly, he did not have the buriel he wished for -- Dressed in my dress blues, and a 21 gun salute. He was most certainly in his dress blues. His body was not positioned in a salute, as per his request, but he was certainly standing at "at ease" with his 5 children and wife saluting him. I know that I was not a member of the Corps, but I genuinely believe that my Dad was. I want to connect to Kafertal, and to the Unit that Dad was assigned to. Some names that I remember are Colonel Picknell, Sgt. Sam Tabb, Sgt. Charles Ramus, and I am sure that I can provide more should you need more names to help me make contact. Dad was born in Creighton, Nebraska in 1917. I can't explain why I am eeding to reach out and make this connection, but it is important to me. If I am making contact with the wrong Corps, I know that I am still making contact with good people. Whatever you can do to help me honor my father's time in the service, and especially his connection to the wonderful families that we knew, like the Doug Dickenson family, I would deeply appreciate it. Blessings to you and yours, and the families who are our families because we chose to serve America in the most honorable of ways.

167th was the first unit I was assigned to as a 2LT fresh out of Ft Gordon. It was a great unit with a great tradition and history. In 1992-93 I served as CDR 54th Sig Bn in its present incarnation as a strategic Bn is SWA. We had an HHD and one Company in Dhahran and another Company in Riyadh. It was quite a surprise to learn the 167th had been a part of the 54th. I hope the Army will reactivate the 167th soon.
