From 1967 to 1972 the Crazy Cats fought upon the electronic battlefields of Vietnam. Their efforts would ultimately affect the outcome of battles on the ground and, perhaps, the outcome of the war itself.
Designated the 1st Army Security Agency (ASA) Company, like other ASA units in Vietnam, it operated under a 'Radio Research' cover designation. The men of the 1st Radio Research Company, however, adopted a more colorful nom de guerre: "The CRAZY CATS."
Their Top Secret missions operated from the Naval Air Facility at Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam. Their crew of 12 to 15 flew aging Navy P-2E Neptune aircraft over the Ho Chi Minh Trail and other areas to intercept, decipher, translate, analyze and disseminate enemy radio communications intelligence (COMINT).
In this role, the Crazy Cats became the Army's most prolific airborne COMINT collector in the Vietnam War.
