Who's Who from Command Liaison Detachment (CLD) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Command Liaison Detachment (CLD). (I still have some confusion in separating the TOC/CLD personnel in Saigon from the earlier assignments to B-55 under MAJ Terry and its later incarnation as B-57. I am also having problems with the period form 10/64 to 1/66 (some of whom are listed in the 5th SFGA TDY book). If you were assigned to TOC/CLD/JCCD 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 have also tried, with only little success, to differentiate between duty post at Camp Goodman (Le Van Duyet), TOC (65 Pasteur St) and House 240 (240 Pasteur St).

Narrative Information: Prior to COL Spears' designating Nha Trang as the SFOB, command functions alternated between Nha Trang and and the TOC in Saigon. The earlier USASF-V (Provisional) and TDY teams from the 5th SFGA, are listed in a previously published monograph. There were several facilities in Saigon, including the TOC (S-1,S-2, S-3) at 240 Rue d. Pasteur and Camp Goodman (S-4 & S-5) at Le Van Duyet in Gia Dinh. Detachment B-55 was redesignated Command Liaison Detachment (CLD) by 5th SFGA GO 809 dtd 5/23/68 effective on that date. The facility at 240 Rue d. Pasteur (or is it the former SOG supply house at 240 Nguyen Minh Chieu or 65 Rue d. Pasteur) was closed on May 9, 1969. On April 14, 1970, CLD was redesignated JCCD (Joint Combined Coordination Detachment (JCCD) by 5th SFGA GO dtd 4/15/70. When did these facilities close?
