Re: 510th Engineer Detachment

I am Tom Farris Chief Master Sergeant (USAF,Ret.), my Uncle served on the 510th in Nam while I was at Tan Son Nhut, Ben Hoa, and Long Binh area. Being there together was good and we saw each other several time. I went to Soc Trang for a week to stay with him and flew down and back on the old Carabu A/C. He was the installation Engineer at Soc Trang and he also served at Can Tho for a while.

Please contact him as he is always glad to discover fellow soldiers and engineers.
You can contact him at:

James Blackburn (Former Capt.) 256-244-4476
Section, Alabama

e-mail: Jamesblackburn@centurytel.net

Hope you get together soon and have a blessed day.

Best Regards to a fellow VET!


Re: 510th Engineer Detachment

Michael-I was the Soc Trang Installation Engineer and also the commanding officer of the 510th on my second tour. You are on the copy of the unit's roster in December 1969. I remember running convoys to remote locations in the delta to repair damaged facilities from mortar attacks. I would like to talk with you and see some of your photos, as I did not take time to get very many pictures. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
