"Ballad of the ASA"
Drunken Soldiers, Always High
Dropouts from old Sigma Phi
Men who bullshit all the way,
These are the men from the ASA
Plastic cans upon our ears,

We've been cleared and
we're not Queers

One Hundred Men will test today,
But only three make the ASA
Trained to go from bar to bar,
That's the life thats best by far
Men who drink will seldom fight,

And the ASA drinks through
the night

On a Mid, a Trick Chief waits,
Four of his men are coming late
Men who drink among the best
Another drink, their last request

A teal blue scarf 'round
my son's neck

Makes my son a nervous wreck
One hundred men re-upped today,
But not a one from the ASA
Black is for the night we fear,
Blue the water we don't go near.
Yellow is the reason why.
Red is for the blood we've shed.
As you see, there is no red!
One hundred men reupped today.
Not a one for the A-S-A!

About the ASA Patch
Approved 15 June 1962
Teal blue within a 1/8 inch yellow border, a shield 2 inches wide and 3 inches in depth,and issuant from the viewer's upper left the leg of an eagle in black with yellow talons grasping two crossed white lightning flashes issuant from upper right points to base.
The flashes across the blue field suggest world-wide electrical communications. The eagle's claw grasping the flashes alludes to the Agency's general mission, that of insuring the smooth functioning of the Army's communication facilities.
ASA Marching Song
ASA is always, all the way
While in the States and far abroad
Guarding, guarding our country's freedom,
Were the men that get the job all done.

The vigilant sentry never ever sleeps,
He's always right there on the job,
The hidden enemy, always lurking,
He will not escape the vigilant sentry's eye

So as we're marching proudly down the way,
We fly our standards high.
The proud men of our unit also hold their heads up high.

So here we go we're always all the way
Soldiers first and second to none
We're marching, guarding, fighting.
For our Country. --

From a Banner Hung at
Arlington Hall Station

Thanks to Robert Dowdall - his other claim to fame -

Coined for use with the ASA Salute
at the time Lt. Col. Louis Millett
was School commander in the '60's
He also helped with the design of TTC.
