Who's Who from Detachment A-243 (Plateau Gi) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-243 (Plateau Gi). If you were assigned to A-243 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 A5/214 took over the Plateau Gi camp o/a 5/?/65 from A1/334B who had opened it at the request of local villagers in January of 1965. A5/214 had closed the camp at Suoi Doi. For information on A1/334B, see the previously published monograph on 1st SFGA TDY teams. The team was redesignated A-243 in ? 1966 and was converted to VNSF Camp A-111 o/a 1/15/69. I have no record of conversion to a Border Ranger element, so it was perhaps converted to RF/PF. Plateau Gi maintained an FOB at Mang Buk from July 1965 or January to October 1966, after which a separate team, designated A-246, was established there.
