  1. Stationed there in 1971 until march of 1972 assigned as a communication advisor ended up flying supplies to lz’s

  2. I was in Thang Binh, Quang Tin (now Quang Nam) Province in ’70-’71. Was originally slotted for Ly Tin District, but at the last moment was sent to Thang Binh.

    How do I say this nicely… the District Senior Advisor had “problems” (he was eventually removed), but the District Chief was pretty good!

    We were written up on the front page of the Washington Post in May 1971.

    I would be happy to communicate with you even if we never crossed paths.

    • I spent time on team16 November 70 -June 71 Tam Ky Then Phuoc Me(spelling)June till October 71.Mat team leader

  3. Wow. I just happened upon this site. I was assigned to MACV Advisory Team 16 and served with the Phoenix Advisor. What a hoot. Based in Tam Ky and operated around Quang Tin Province. I was there from January 1970 to March 1971. After college went back into the military as a Navy SEAL. Missed the buzz.

    • Craig…I was in Ly Tin as DIOCC coordinator and Team 16 team leader in 1970. Don’t remember our paths crossing. I rarely went to Tam Ky after serving in January 1970. If you told me the name of the Phoenix advisor in Tam Ky, I’d probably recognize it.

  4. Jim, I worked for you in Korea. For the past 10+ years, I’ve been running Ops and your guidance has been implemented in many of my endeavors. Thank you for your leadership and service!
    Always Out Front

  5. Request from James H. Cheatham, Jr.; formerly Captain with MACV team 16 Thang Binh District. PRU Advisor. Injured in mine explosion that damaged M113 track in late 1968 or
    early 1969. Trying to find records or determine the date. Operating with 1/1st Cavalry Regiment at the time.
