Who's Who from MACV RECONDO School (Draft)

The following is a listing of all personnel in our database, who served in the MACV RECONDO SCHOOL. If you can correct any errors or if you can add any names, particularly if you know the assignments for the personnel listed below 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. The Numbered Instructors have been dropped from this list, if they did not also hold a specific staff postition, since they are all included in Tom Halliwell's book on the RECONDO School. If you have Orders for Graduation that we do not have, please send copies of those.

Narrative Information: The MACV RECONDO School trained Long Range Reconnaisance personnal from all FWMAF. Tom Halliwell's book on the RECONDO School includes both a list of Recondo School Instructors and a list of all the Recondo School Graduates that we have identified.
