  1. I’m looking for anybody who might have served with SGT Robert J Williamson. Bobby Joe was KIA on the 1st day of Tet, 31 Jan 68 in Gia Dinh Province while leading a SV Ranger Squad. He was my best friend in high school and the only info I found about him is from his profile on the “Wall” site. I know he received the DSC posthumously for his actions that day. TIA.

    My name is Robert Meyer & I spent from Oct. ’66 to Jan. ’67 with Advisory team 100 in Thu Duc, Gia Dinh Prov. A Capt. Cliff (Bud) Sturdivant & myself an RTO, were acting as liason providing artillery fire from nearby 105 & 155 batteries who I believe were attached the 1st Inf Div. The only “arty” unit I remember working with was the 2nd of the 13th, 23rd group. We certainly had fire missions with American units, but I seem to remember working with Viet Ranger units quite a bit. The only name I remember from team 100 was a Green Beret Major Theodore Grant, who was the Thu Duc subsector advisor. After my team left Thu Duc, Major Grant sent a “Letter of Commendation” to our Commanding Officer, (I still have the Letter of Comm.).

  3. I served at Gia Dinh Sector S2 from 7 November 1967 to 2 December 1968. My comanding officers were Capt. Kern and Capt John Laton. I served with First Sgt. Story, Platoon Sargent Edwards and Staff Sargent Harold Day.

  4. I served at Gia Dinh Sector S2 from 7 November 1967 to 2 December 1968. My comanding officers were Capt. Kern and Capt John Laton. I served with First Sgt. Story, Platoon Sargent Edwards and Staff Sargent Harold Fay.

  5. I served as the RTO on a 6 MAT# 100 located in the RSSZ (Quang Xuygen) from 1967 to 1968. Our base was on the Long Tau River south of Nha Be. I understand that Team Numbers were changed. If anyone knows of the number change or any other relevant information I would appreciate your response. Our call sign was “WORKHORSE”. Thanks, Ron Laro.

  6. I was the assistant team leader of Mat team 80 headquartered in Gia Dinh in late 1968 to March 1969. Major Adams was the province head at that time. Our team consisted of Captain Johnson, Staff Sargent DaVilla, Sargent Spencer and our medic.
    I am confused since the team 80 in the listing to the right shows team 80 in An Xuyen. I believe that we were the original team. I can remember going to Di An for two weeks for Vietnam language and customs – such as don’t show them the soles of your boots.
    The Vietnamese commander was Captain Chu’a.

  7. I was assigned as the Team Leader of a 5 man Advisory Team (MAT) in June ’68. The team was TDY to MACV from 199th Infantry Brigade. We were located just North of Saigon on the flight path for Tan San Nhut Airport. Can’t think of the name of the village, but it was at the confluence of the Saigon and Ben Cat Rivers. Was relocated to Binh Chanh after several months because of personality conflict with a Major that I did not like.

  8. I was the RTO for Team 100 and later Team 44 in Hoc Mon and served there from August 1966 thru October 1968. Made it thru the Tet Offensive and Counter Offensive in 1968.

  9. I served with the 7th artillery detachment assigned to this team when I arrived in June 1966 we switched to USARV in 1967 if anyone remembers this counter motor radar detachment with an ARVN 105mm platoon please post … thanks we were only a group of 20 …

  10. i have one Monarch table lighters of team 100, i still use it every day, it made in japan, i think it useful for someone. i am Vietnamese.

  11. Served as Assistant Team Leader with Capt. Miranda as Team Leader. SSGT James L. Eplin jr (Doc) SGT Thompson and others whose names are too distant to recall. Doc died of a massive heat attack. He was the same age (52)as my Father was, while serving in VN! God Bless You Doc Eplin.

    • I was looking for information for the MACV Team 100 for December 1969.

      My son’s father-in-law was wounded serving with MAT100 in December 1969.

      I made him maps of the area that he operated in around Dau Tieng – Saigon – An Loc – using photo shop

      and combining the 1:50,000 maps I down loaded from the Texas Tech Vietnam Center web-site.

      I added the main bases in the area with photo shop and printed it out 40″x 60″size. I thought it looked

      cool for only spending a couple days putting it together. I have made several of these types of maps

      as historian for the Americal Division Veteran’s Association and the veterans line up just to get a look

      at the locations of the LZs on a map at the reunions.

  12. Team 100 was located in Gia Dinh Province which included Saigon and the surrounding Districts. I served as an advisor to Nhabe District and the 55th Regional Force Battalion based at Chauhiep From August 1965 to August1966. The Province has since been included in the greater Ho Chi Minh City.

    • I was senior advisor to 33d Ranger Battalion during Cambodia incursion, then 38th Ranger battalion. Left toward end of 1970 to special forces. with me in the 38th were Lt Ken Pliskie, MSG Ed Abbadusky, and SSGMalcolm Smith. My counterpart was LTC Hong who I stayed in contact with until his death.

  13. My son’s father in law was an officer in MAT 100. He was wounded in December 1969 and retired from service. I wanted to know if someone has records that might identify the grid coordinates of where he was wounded. I am historian for Vietnam era Americal Division veterans. I made a map of the areas of Tay Ninh-An Loc- Saigon, Dau Tieng and filled in some locations that I recalled from news stories and etc. Then I added some of the locations mentioned in the awards for the DSC recipients from the MAT100 team. I don’t have the detailed S2/S3 reports; sitreps; COAAR; or casualty reports that I usually have to work with like I have for the Americal Division. (His name is Stan Helton).
