Interesting how in searches LTC Dewey comes up along side the team as well as the overlapping dates. He is not mentioned as part of that effort. It looks like there were several OSS projects going on in the transitional period of Japanese surrender.

This link goes a little deeper and reminds me of other missions at the time like Norway and the 99th Battalion Separate / later NORSOF and 474th Infantry Regiments although Indo China had different dynamics...
