Narrative Information: The first PCS Detachment A7/1 took over the Dak To camp from A1/322 around 01/20/66. Dak To had been first opened in May, 1962 and had been occupied, off and on by TDY teams from the 1st and 7th SFGA. For information on the earlier TDY teams at Dak Pek see the previously published monographs on 1st SFGA and 7th SFGA TDY teams. A 1st SFGA team closed the camp in January 1965 and A1/322 reopened it about the time Dak Sut was overrun in August 1965. The PCS team was redesignated A-244. It had an augmentation team from B-57. The Dak To area was the scene of heavy fighting by the 4th Infantry Division and 173rd Airborne Brigade in 1967 and by the IICTZ Mike Force in 1969. The camp was relocated further west to Ben Het in January 1968 and the Dak To camp was closed o/a 5/15/68. It was converted to 95th Border Ranger o/a 12/31/70. Dak To and Ben Het were both located in Dak To District, Kontum Province.
