Who's Who from Detachment A-103 (Gia Vuc) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-103 (Gia Vuc). If you were assigned to A-103 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-103 was located in Ba To District, Quang Ngai Province. The earlier TDY teams, from the 5th SFGA and the 7th SFGA, are listed in previously published monographs. For some period, an FOB was maintained on the high ground south of the camp. Another report has 3 small FOBs all North or East of the camp. The Camp was turned over to the LLDB on January 31, 1969. A small liaison detachment remained at the camp. Gia Vuc was converted to 70th Border Rangers on 9/30/70.

Jean-Luc Delauve, a UK based French Researcher maintains a website of interest.
