The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment B-20 (2nd Mobile Strike Force Command) and all of its subordinate and precursor elements. If you were assigned to B-20 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 "Assignment Unknown," or if you have any rosters, please let me know by e-mail at ( or by phone at (713) 683-9076 or join the team discussion at the Green Beret Forum. The assignment of personnel by companies and platoons is probably fairly nebulous, but I would appreciate your efforts to help me classify personnel as well as possible.

Narrative Information: After the 1968 Tet Offensive, the II CTZ B Detachments in Qui Nhon (B-22). Ban Me Thuot (B-23) and Kontum (B-24) were authorized to form local Mike Force companies. These companies were under the nominal control of the respective B Detachments until April 1969 when they were brought under the control of B-20 (2nd Mobile Strike Force Command). Around January 1969, the Qui Nhon Mike Force had been brought to Kontum and consolidated with A-204.
