Who's Who from Detachment B-32 (Tay Ninh) (Partial Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, assigned to Detachment B-32 (Tay Ninh). If you were assigned to B-13 or you can correct any errors or can add any names or [ESPECIALLY HELPFUL] identify the assignments for the names at the bottom of the list shown as "Assignments Unknown," or if you have any rosters, please let me know by e-mail at (sherman1@flash.net) 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 this team.

Narrative Information: The first PCS B Detachment B5/1xx took over Tay Ninh sector and subsector responsibilities from Detachment B1/320 o/a January 18, 1965. It was redesignated B-32. The Detachment was located in the "Chateau" (the old MAAG compound) but later moved closer to the Tay Ning City airport about 12/67. Tay Ninh was located in Phu Kuong District, Tay Ninh Province.
