Who's Who from Detachment A-351 (Hiep Hoa (New) and A-353/A-325 (Duc Hue) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-351 (Hiep Hoa (New)) and A-353/A-325 (Duc Hue). If you were assigned these teams 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 "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.

Narrative Information: The first PCS Detachment A7/18 established a new camp at Hiep Hoa o/a May 26, 1966 via Xom Cat. This was the area of the old 5th SFGA TDY team Hiep Hoa camp that was overrun on 11/23/63, where Ike Camacho, George Smith, Claude McClure and Ken Rorabach were captured. It was designated A-351 and nicknamed "Pink Tower Heights" because of a colorful radio antenna there. Hiep Hoa was closed o/a/12/30/67 and its assets were transferred to the (Old) Duc Hue camp. Hiep Hoa was located in Duc Hue District, Hau Nghia Province. Some of the troops listed below should actually be shown at A-353 below. Your help in sorting this out would be appreciated.
