are literally Thousands of reports spanning 10 years of the Vietnam War, from
1965 to 1975, far too many to list individually on any one web site.
Additionally, when you are looking
for a specific report for your unit, many times the report you are looking for
is listed under another unit. This is due to the fact that your unit was
attached to and under the tactical or operational command of another unit for
Action, Date or Combat Operation.
These documents are located in
several different databases, and it can be a real hit and miss process. For this reason, some
trial & error is
always necessary in order to locate the report you are looking for.
I learned this the hard way when I
was looking for a After Action reports to validate a VA claim.
Your report can be located by DATE,
UNIT Designation and or specific Combat Operation name, if you know or remember
In many cases there will be
multiple reports for the same period or operation. Some reports originate at
Battalion level, some at Regimental level and some at Division level.
All Reports are in PDF format and
viewable on the web. and are also downloadable. Some regimental and Division level
reports can contain upwards of 200 pages.
Some are of poor quality and are harder to read than others,
most are about the average quality and can be easily read. Remember we are
dealing with declassified material scanned from type written pages to micro
film and then scanned into pdf format, and most of this material is over 40 to
50 years old to boot.
