Who's Who from 5th SGF(A) Group S-1 (Personnel) Section (Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, who served in the Group S-1 Section. If you can identify the specific assignments of the Assistant S-1's, and the "Assignment Unknown" personnel below, or of you can correct any errors or if you can add any names or if you have any rosters, please let me know by e-mail at ( or by phone at (713) 683-9076 or join the staff section discussion at the Green Beret Forum.

Narrative Information: Earlier personnel, serving with US Army Special Forces - Vietnam (Provisional), are noted in the 5th SFGA TDY booklet. It appears that the earlier S-1 staff operated out of the TOC in Saigon. (see CLD.) S-1 personnel assigned to Training and Support Headquarters (TSH), after the colors were returned to Ft. Bragg, will be on another, separate, table. There is a long list of personnel assigned to HHC whose specific assignment is unknown. This list will be posted at a later date.
