Who's Who from Detachment A-441 (Tri Ton/Phu Quoc) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-441 (Tri Ton/Phu Quoc). If you were assigned to these camps or you can correct any errors or can add any names or [ESPECIALLY HELPFUL] identify the assignments for the names at the bottom of the 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.

Narrative Information: The first PCS Detachment B5/230 established Camp Dan Tam at Phu Quoc o/a 03/06/65. B5/230 actually was B-31, having transferred from the Phuoc Binh Thanh Special Zone (see B-31). It was redesignated A-427 and reported to B-42 in Chau Doc. The first PCS Detachment A5/131 took over Camp Dan Y ( a subsectory advisory post) at Tri Ton from A1/111, 1st SFG(A) o/a 02/01/65.This camp was designated A-426. As near as I can make out, the B team at Phu Quoc was downgraded to an A team. Some of the B-team Assets were sent to Tri Ton to replace the A5/131 assets there o/a 8/01/65 and the A5/131 assets went to Phu Quoc in return. Since all of the A5/131 assets at Tri Ton are readily identifiable (they are marked in silver) in the Phu Quoc portion of the chart below, I will only list those elements that came from Phu Quoc to Tri Ton in the Tri Ton section. The Tri Ton subsector was turned over to MACV and the A-426 was consolidated with A-427 o/a 09/01/66 which may or may not have been the reason that a B-Detachment (B-44) was formed at Phu Quoc. Tri Ton (a-426) was located in Tri Ton District, Chau Doc Province. Phu Quoc (A-427) was located in ? District, Kien Giang Province. It was redesignated A-441 with the establishment of B-44, but closed and turned over to RF/PF o/a 06/15/68 when the B-team was closed.
