Narrative Information: The first PCS Detachment A5/122 took over the Khe Sanh camp from A1/323, 1st SFG(A). It was redesignated A-101. Khe Sanh was turned over to III MAF and the camp was relocated to Old Lang Vei o/a 12/19/66. A year later, o/a 12/27/67 the camp was relocated to a new site at Lang Vei. That camp was over-run by an armored assault on 02/07/68. The team was reconstituted and relocated to Hill 52 as an FOB of A-109 Thong Duc and relocated shortly thereafter to Mai Loc. Mai Loc was closed o/a 08/27/70. Khe Sanh and Lang Vei were located in Huong Hoa District, Quang Tri Province. Earlier TDY teams came from the 1st SFGA and 7th SFGA's, listed in previously published monographs.
