Great story.

There was a big article in my local newspaper the other day because I guess a local judge who is a Viet Nam veteran was involved in the operation and went to DC for the ceremonies. I've always been impressed with the 11th ACR. If I'm not mistaken they're still stationed out at Irwin.

They are now.

They used to be in Germany as the "die in place" screening unit.

Our ODA spent some time along the IGB with their 2nd Reconnaisssance Squadron providing some FOB support out of Bad Hersfeld for our JCS directed tasking - they made a good 'smokescreen' and we affectionately referred to them as the 11th Armored Carnival Regiment. I still do.

Got a neato border service certificate from them, though.

MACV-SOG P.U.C.

Has anyone had trouble getting PUC put on DD 214? St Louis said to go through Board of Corrections. I filed their forms and submitted the packet last year. I just got their decision and they have denied including the PUC on DD 214 because my records reflect assignment to SOACCN. My records show no affiliation with MACV-SOG. I had sent them all orders to and from CCN. I also included the GO for the PUC. How did others get the PUC into their official file. I am retired, no pressing reason, other than the pride of being recognized by any future ancestors.
