Who's Who from Detachment A-104 (A Ro/Ha Thanh) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-104 (A Ro/Ha Thanh). If you were assigned to A-104 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 ( or by phone at (281) 879-5688 or join the team discussion at the Green Beret Forum. I need a copy of the PCS orders & Photo for the original PCS team (A5/331).

Narrative Information: The first PCS Detachment A5/331 (later A-104) took over the A Ro camp from the 1st SFG(A) team that had opened it. They closed A Ro o/a 04/24/65 and opened Ha Thanh on 04/28/65. Ha Thanh was located in Son Ha District, Quang Ngai Province. Earlier TDY teams from the 1st SFGA, listed in a previously published monograph, had maintained a camp at Son Ha, at the other end of the valley. A team from B-57 ran an operation from Ha Thanh in mid 1967. The camp was converted to 85th Border Ranger on 08/31/70.
