Greetings. I was the original CO of MAT-IV/104 in Kiev Thien District, Chuong Thien Province. I was a 1LT filling a CPT slot. We worked with two RF/PF companies while I served there from about 11/68-05/69, when I rotated home. Of the 5 Americans who I served with, all came home OK. Our interpreters wife was killed by an 81mm mortar in about March 1969. Lt. Col. Hamilton was Province Advisor and my boss.
I was team leader Jan -December 1969
Ray, you have already answered most of my questions. Missed seeing the thread until after I sent you reply.
Jay, As it turns out I was the team leader during the first half of 1969. I left RVN at the end of May 19569, and a LT replaced me who had graduated from USMA. Is that you?
Hello to all Team Members – I was Team Cdr MT-104 Apl ’70 through Dec ’71. I would sure like to any other team members. Ray Spirlet
Mat # 104 was located in Kien Thien District, Choung Thien Province. WE worked and lived in many hamlets there.
Just saw this thread and reference to MAT IV/104. When the army initiated this organization, I was an infantry LT assigned to the 4th Division out of Camp Enari, near Pleiku. I received a change of orders (somehow an infantry LT had no combat credited service in Viet Nam), and sent to the 90RepoDepo and MACV. Before leaving for RVN, i did study the language in VA for about 6 months and that came in really handy. Where are you domiciled?
William- I live in Massachusetts. I arrived in IV CTZ , as it was called at the time as a 2Lt. I made 1LT sometime later and Cpt a year after that. I extended for 6 months- That is why the year and a half tour there.
Ray, did you stay in the military for a career? Where was MAT IV-104 deployed and what was the level of activity as to patrols, ambush activity, part of larger operations initiated by either RVN or USARV units?
