I can't answer that question for you. I was a young kid and I know we did work for the 1st CAV and MACV. We were a target aquisition battery. I am pretty sure we had some batteries on LZ hills near AnKhe but that's all I remember. Did do surveying for classified maps 20 miles south of Pleiku. I do have about ten of these patches.

Target Acquisition Batteries (TAB) had several small TAB Detachments that were deployed to several different locations across an Area of Operations.
