Who's Who from 81st Group (Ranger Advisors) (Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database who served in the 81st Group. If you can correct any errors, supply specific dates of assignment and duties, or if you can add any names or if you have any rosters, please let me know by e-mail at ( or by phone at (713) 683-9076 or join the team discussion at the Green Beret Forum. It would be particularly helpful to add names of personnel from the 1970-1971 period.

Narrative Information: After Project Delta closed in June, 1970, the 81st Airborne Ranger Group was returned to the control of the ARVN Airborne Division. The Group and their advisors were however distinct from the other elements of the Division. Though this unit was no longer a part of US Army Special Forces in RVN, their place is being kept here.
