Who's Who from Detachment A-303/361/1st Bn, 3MSFC (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-303/361 (1st Bn 3 MSFC). If you were assigned to A-303/361 or you can correct any errors or can add any names or [ESPECIALLY HELPFUL] identify the assignments for the names on the list shown as "Assignment Unknown," or if you have any rosters, please let me know by e-mail at (sherman1@flash.net) or by phone at (713) 683-9076 or join the team discussion at the Green Beret Forum. I haven't decided whether or not it will be useful to separate or consolidate the listings. Nor have I been able to determine whether A-303 evolved into A-361 or A-363.

Narrative Information: Did Kenny bring the Detachment from A-312 through Ho Ngoc Tau before forming Xom Cat? A-303 moved from ?? to Ho Ngoc Tau and, later, when SIGMA took over Ho Ngoc Tau, to Long Hai. If this sounds confusing to you, then welcome to the club. If you can shed any light on it, clue me in. A-303 had conducted Mobile Guerilla Force missions. A-303 became Detachment A-36x and x Bn 3rd Mobile Strike Force Command on 05/23/68. Was the whole 3rd Mobile Strike Force Command converted to 65th Border Ranger o/a 11/30/70? Ho Ngoc Tau (AKA Thu Duc) was located in ?? District, Gia Dinh Province.
