Narrative Information: The first PCS B Detachment B5/230 established a camp at Phuoc Vinh o/a 12/01/64 as Detachment B-31. The Detachment had a special relationship with the Phuoc Binh Thanh Special Zone. After that relationship was terminated, the team broke up, partly to A-426. A new team returned after PSA COL John Hill rotated. The camp was closed o/a 12/20/65 and relocated to Xuan Loc. Phuoc Vinh was located in ?? District, Binh Duong Province. Xuan Loc was located in Xuan Loc District, Long Khanh Province and had a sector and sub-sector advisory responsibility. The camp was closed o/a 05/15/67 and the USASF assets were transferrre to B-36. Medical, Signal, Intelligence and Engineering augmentations are presently listed with the parent element at the SFOB.

The following is a list of the original team that opened and closed at Phuoc Vinh. Assistance would be appreciated in determining where all these people went.
