Who's Who from Detachment A-402 (To Chau/Moc Hoa) (Partial Draft)
[
B-40][A-401/1st Bn][A-402/2nd Bn][A-403/3rd Bn][A-404/4th Bn][A-405/Airborne TC]

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-402 (To Chau/Moc Hoa). If you were assigned to A-402 or you can correct any errors or can add any names or put people in the appropriate companies or [ESPECIALLY HELPFUL] identify the assignments for the names at the bottom of this page 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 think that for A-402, it might be worthwhile to note company and platoon assignments in the remarks section, but maintain the listing by MOS. Any Comments?
