Who's Who from Detachment A-234 (Phey Srunh and An Lac) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-234 (Phey Srunh and An Lac). If you were assigned to A-234 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 (713) 683-9076 or join the team discussion at the Green Beret Forum.

Narrative Information: The first PCS Detachment A5/133 replaced 1st SFG(A) TDY team, A1/431, at Phey Srunh (Camp Brodt, named after James H Brodt who was killed on 5/29/63). I need the PCS orders and official photo for this team. The team was redesignated A-234. O/a 5/13/65, the Phey Srunh camp was closed and a new camp reopened at An Lac in Lac Thien District, Darlac Province. The earlier TDY teams, from the 1st SFGA, are listed in a previously published monograph. Personnel from the 41st Civil Affairs Det were attached to this team in 1965. The camp was turned over to RF/PF on 03/31/70.
