Who's Who from Detachment B-11 (Quang Ngai/Chu Lai) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment B-11 (Quang Ngai City/Chu Lai). If you were assigned to B-11 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 "Assignments 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 need a copy of the PCS orders for the original PCS team.

Narrative Information: The first PCS B Detachment A7/3 which transferred from the 7th to the 5th SFGA established a camp in Quang Ngai City, coming from and closing to Danang. The B-Detachment, designated B-11, was downgraded to a Liaison Office (see C-1). Quang Ngai City was located in Quang Ngai District, Quang Ngai Province. I have been unable to identify any detachments numbered B-12, B-14 and B-15. If you have any information about a projected use of these numbers, please advise. It was suggested that B-31 (Phuoc Vinh) had originally been intended to go to Hue, possibly as B-12. There is no confirmation of this.

O/a July 9, 1970, B-22 from Qui Nhon was relocated to Chu Lai and redesignated B-11. It was downsized and acted as a Forward Supply Point for the southernmost ICTZ camps from July, 1970 until it closed to Danang o/a October 31, 1970. Chu Lai was located in Chu Lai District, Quang Tin Province.
