Who's Who from Detachment A-102 (A Shau/Tien Phuoc)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-102 (A Shau/Tien Phuoc). If you were assigned to A-102 or you can correct any errors or can add any names or [ESPECIALLY HELPFUL] identify the assignments for the names at the last page of the list shown as "Assignments Unknown," or if you have any rosters, please let me know by e-mail at (sherman1@flash.net) or by phone at (281) 879-5688 or join the team discussion at the Green Beret Forum.

Narrative Information: A-102 was originally located in Nam Hoa District, Thua Tin Province. The earlier TDY teams, from the 1st SFGA, are listed in a previously published monograph. It was replaced by A5/334 which was renumbered A-102. An FOB (split A-team) was maintained at A Luoi from 05/02/65 to 12/08/65, which was closed and consolidated at A Shau. A Shau was over-run on 03/12/66. A new camp at Tien Phuoc (Tien Phuoc District/Quang Tin Province) was opened by A1/324 (a TDY team from Okinawa) and turned over to the survivors of A Shau. The camp was converted to 77th Border Ranger on 10/31/70.
