1. Society of the Vietnamese Airbonre
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 to our attention.
