Any current or former Army experts tell me what this is...

E Co 43rd Sig Bn APO(LBM) 96204..........???

This is from a liberty pass from someone I new who served in Vietnam in 1967...

Was wondering what kind of unit this is..Construction of somekind??

This also came off of a U.S. Government Motor Vehicle Operator's ID Card issued in Vietnam for driving trucks, 1/4 ton, 3/4 ton/ and 2 1/2 ton...

Also what rank is an E-3 in the Army??

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

Thanks

My guess is E company, 43d SIGNAL Battallion.

The APO is "Army post office" or some such designation, it's a mail routing deal, as is the zip.

Real experts, feel free to point out mu ignorance.

Sounds right to me. E-3 is a PFC.

Any ideas where this battallion was stationed in Vietnam, say Febuary of 1967??

I am thinking all over South Vietnam at the time??
