It took about six months before the first field party went out on survey. They started in the northern part of the country.
Zaints writes: "Second Lt. Felix ... did everything for the company. Our medical officer was Captain Grossman and Sergeant Wilkinson was the Top NCO. My MOS was in Finance and I was assigned to MAAG group in Addis. I took care of the payroll and travel for the company. Our company grew to about 150 which included Officers and Enlisted. One of the things that I did on my free time, I was the projection man for the movies that were shown each evening. I left there in July 1966 and was assigned to DeWitt Army Hospital, Ft Belvoir, VA. I presently live in Alexandria, Virginia and work in Washington, D.C.
