Who's Who from Detachment A-302/362/2nd Bn, 3MSFC (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-302/362 (2nd Bn 3 MSFC). If you were assigned to A-302/362 or you can correct any errors or can add any names or [ESPECIALLY HELPFUL] identify the assignments for the names on 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. I haven't decided whether or not it will be useful to separate or consolidate the listings.

Narrative Information: The first PCS Detachment A5/314 moved from Ben Cat to Ho Ngoc Tau? and took over the Operation SHAMROCK along highway ? to neutralize VC tax collectors. This initial Nung Security Force, named "Apache Force," was trained to conduct LZ Security and pathfinder operations and evolved into an initial MIKE force composed of 4 Nung companies, a Recon/Surveillance Platoon and a Pathfinder Platoon. For some reason there was a swap indesignation between A-301 and a 302. The new A-302 moved to Bien Hoa and then on to Trang Sup. A-301 moved from Bien Hoa to Ho Ngoc Tau and later, when SIGMA took over Ho Ngoc Tau, to Long Hai. If this sounds confusing to you, then welcome to the club. If you can shed any light on it, clue me in. A-301 became Detachment A-36x and x Bn 3rd Mobile Strike Force Command on 05/23/68. Was the whole 3rd Mobile Strike Force Command converted to 65th Border Ranger o/a 11/30/70? Ho Ngoc Tau (AKA Thu Duc) was located in ?? District, Gia Dinh Province.
