Field Station 8604 AAU from 1950, renamed F.S. 8604 D.U @ mid-1954

Dave Engstrom found the following in the ASA history:
"In 1950, one year after the Armed Forces Security Agency is formed, and coinciding with the outbreak of the Korean War, several ASA Field Stations are established. Originally these sites received 4-digit unit designators and were known as Administrative Area Units (AAUs). Between 1954 and 1957 some were converted to Detached Unit (DU). In the mid-60s they were redesignated as USASA Field Stations. This redesignation coincides with the establishment of  several new Field Stations in 1966-1967."
