There were additional slots at some of the A camps due to mission (read hearts-n-minds). If someone had a non-team mos, but filled a team slot during combat,, they might receive the S.. Remember the camps were getting hit daily,, it made everyone a shooter..

The needs of the business, did not always get you to the school house before Nam..


I think one of the most famous non-mos slotted individuals was Cpt Gillespie, he wore Air Defense brass..
Captain. Gillespie was in C Company 1st SFG(Abn.) Machinato, Okinawa in 1964 before deploying to Vietnam as the C O of Det.A-312 CIDG/SF Camp Buon Bring. Another member of that team was Sp4 Earl Bleacher shown in the photo.
