Guessing this might be an Army aviation unit, but haven't been able to hit on anything. Thank you for any information.

Yes, it is US Army aviation related. Evolved into 52nd Aviation Battalion in Vietnam. It was a small element sent into Vietnam in the early 60's.

Thank you very much for the ID, I appreciate it. I had wondered if it in any might be connected to the 52nd Aviation Battalion but I was just never able to connect the dots.
