Who's Who from Detachment A-431 (Cai Cai) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment A-431 (Cai Cai). If you were assigned to these camps or you can correct any errors or can add any names or [ESPECIALLY HELPFUL] identify the assignments for the names at the bottom of this page 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(s).

Narrative Information: TF GREEN from old Don Phuc established Camp Dan Chu at Cai Cai o/a 04/01/65. It was designated A-412 and reported to B-41 at Moc Hoa, although there seems to be a period in which it reported directly to C-4. Cai Cai was located in Hong Ngu District, Kien Tuong Province.When the reorganization of C-4 took place o/a 06/01/67, Cai Cai was redesignated A-431 and reported to B-43, first, at Cao Lanh, then at Chi Lang. Cai Cai was converted to 76th Border Rangers o/a 09/30/70. Cai Cai was a particularly unique engineering accomplishment; after being flooded out, it was rebuilt as a floating camp and spent a good part of the year that way.
