Who's Who from Detachment A-324 (Nui Ba Den) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-324 (Ba To (New)). If you were assigned to A-324 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. I need a copy of the PCS orders for the original PCS team.

Narrative Information: The PCS personnel from ???Detachment A5/??? took over the Nui Ba Den Radio Relay Site from B1/320, 1st SFG(A) assets. It was variously designated A-324B or A-325A. The site was originally established with an AN-19 radio relay system for the western III CTZ camps. Was this equipment upgraded or the need for the site phased out with newer equipment? The Air Force added a radar site in 1965, but magnetic interference from the mountain closed it down. Nui Ba Den was closed o/a 10/01/70. Nui Ba Den was located in Phu Khuong District, Tay Ninh Province.
