Narrative Information: The first PCS Detachment A5/213 established Camp Dan Nam at An Phu o/a 10/01/64. It was redesignated A-424 and reported to B-42 in Chau Doc. An Phu was located in Chuong Thien District, Chau Doc Province. An Phu was turned over to RF/PF o/a 08/01/66. The USASF assets appear to have been held together at Can Tho and participated in an operation on Phu Quoc Island (see A-442). The silver background indicates personnel who span this time frame.
