  1. My Dad is former Army CPT Theodore (Ted) Makrokanis, served in MACVSOG, Advisory Team 95 and III Special Services as well as other places from 1967-1969/1970ish in Vietnam. Does any one remember him? Know him? He is now is a nursing home and I’d like to know more about him back then. I’m currently still in the military as well, Navy Officer in similar career fields/specialty/designator. Thanks!!

    • Hi Darron,

      I was an Army Engineer Officer Lieutenant in Team 85 where we lived in the Special Forces B-41 Compound in the village of Moc Hoa, Kien Tuong Province from about August 1968-August 1969. So sorry, but I do not remember hearing your Dad’s name.

  2. From August 1968 to August 1969 I was assigned to MACV Team 85 which was even for years prior to this & afterwards co-located in Special Forces Compound B-41 in the town of Moc Hoa,in Kien Tuong Province.

    I have no idea why MACV Team 85 is listed in conjunction with, or associated with Tieu Can-Vinh Binh ………….. or why Kien Tuong is listed with MACV Team 114.

  3. SFC JOHN GREEN RET. I WAS IN TIEU CAN ALL OF 1968. LOST MY BROTHER IN
    PLEIKU IN 1966 BILLY M GREEN IN THE 25TH DIV IF ANY ONE KNOW HIM E-MAIL ME .

  4. Hi. My name is Eddie Horton and I lost an uncle in the Kein Tuong Province in 1969. His name was Kyle Waldrop and I was wondering if that name rang a bell with anyone.
    Let me know…..thanks

  5. Served On MACV team 85 from Aug 71 until Aug 72, most of the time with Major George Kleb (Senior Advisor at Ap Bac) and Sgt Jason Aldridge . I was Deputy Sr Advisor and Phung Hoang Advisor. We were to close the team down May of 72, but were hit hard by the 88th NVA or Z15 on 7 April, lost most of our outposts during a two week time frame, spent the rest of the tour trying to re establish control of the District. When I left in early Aug 72, we were and had been the last district team in the province. Province Hq had a total of 8 military supporting us. Nelson F Huggins, Major Retired.

  6. Interesting post. I am new to this site. I was in AP Bac Chan from June 1968 to November 1968. We reported to the SF B41 in Moc Hoa. Many times we were referred to as MAT 62. Province of Kien Tuong. I have many photos of Ap Bac Chan. My XO was 1LT George Morgan and I remember a Sgt Terrell. Living out of one of the schoolroom when it was relatively safe otherwise we were in the compound with the 153rd Regional Force (RF).

  7. I was in Advisor Team 85 from around March 64 to Dec 64, at that time we were located in Moc Hoa, Kein Tuong Province. I and a Capt Green were in Ap Bac in a Sub Sector role for awhile and I think for our safety we were pulled out. Rosier L. Williamson, SFC Ret.

    • Interesting. I was also in Moc Hoa and assigned to SF 41 as a Mobile Advisory Team (MAT). We were in Bac Chan (about 20 miles away). Was there from May/June 68 to November 68. At times we were referred to as MAT 62 and also MAT 85. I just think there was some confusion then as to who belongs to who.
