Narrative Information: A7/24, which had been redesignated A-254, converted the Plei Do Lim Camp to VNSF control. The USASF assets, less CPT Miller, were used to open a new camp at Duc Lap, in ? District, Darlac Province, in the vicinity of the old Buon Sar Pa camp. I need the orders for the A7/24 team. Duc Lap was redesignated A-239. It was the scene of a major battle in August of 1968. B-57 and 403RR had personnel stationed at Duc Lap. The camp was converted to 96th Border Rangers on 12/30/70.
