MACV Teams were out there alone- not on base camps, air bases or at sea. Small groups of Americans often in remote areas supported only by Vietnamese forces whose capabilities and loyalty were sometimes suspect. This website has been established for former Advisory Team members – military and civilian, as well as FAC’s, Shotguns, naval, air force and coast guard liaisons and anyone else attached to a team including Vietnamese– to reconnect with former members. In addition to teams which served within South Viet Nam’s 44 provinces and over 200 districts, teams were also assigned to ARVN divisions whose area of operations (DTA’s) included several provinces. In 1968 some Team numbers were changed by MACV so some province sites may have more than one Team number designation.
To join or start a discussion, type either the team number, province name or ARVN division number in the box on the right above “posts” and hit “enter”.
This is a working project (no advertising) intended to reconnect those who served. The menu of teams will grow but has obvious gaps. Feedback on the site will be appreciated. Please use the comments section under that Team’s page to describe the location of the team if you know it and the page will be updated. Only general comments about the website should be made in the comments section below.
Recently MACVTeams.Org reached 1,500 comments contributed with over 40,000 page views. We are proud of this success that you have been a part of. The feedback has been positive and we hope our growing visibility continues to reach more Team Members out there.
