Is the Society still functioning? Have not any contact regarding payment of dues.
Unable to open Richard Miller's submission regarding history of Team 162. Would greatly appreciate any help in getting a copy.
My time with the team was 11/63 - 4/64. At that time it was the Vn. Airborne Brigade. Anyone in the DC area who also served on the Team?
Editor's Note: I regret we have no affiliation with the organization who erected the marker, so can't help with your question. I have removed the broken link (http://www.centex-avac.org/id78.html). Thank you for bringing it
