Hello, I believe this was posted earlier by a Forum member. Unfortunately, I don’t have the original post bookmarked and the ‘hotlinks’ at the end don’t seem to work. Still this should get you started until another more knowledgeable Forum member ‘answers up’:
How to request Vietnam After Action Information
Official Documentation may be available for your unit, unit of a friend, or the unit of a loved one. DO NOT PAY A WEB SITE FOR THIS TYPE OF INFORMATION. It is free. We recommend a personal visit to the Archives. However, if a visit is not possible, the following is SUGGESTED as a possible procedure for YOU to receive information similiar to that above. Although not a requirement, we recommend your search is limited to a six day period.
The information below was sent to me by fellow Vietnam Veteran John Kolsun. He requested that I include it on this web site so that other veterans would know that they too can request copies of their unit's history. Besides visiting the Archives in person, there are two ways to obtain your Unit's History - method one or method two.

Dear Congressman / Congresswoman,
I have been informed by the National Archives the following records are

I cannot arrange a trip to the National Archives. I am requesting that your

copy the records, and send the copies to the address below. I understand
that I am responsible for the cost of copies.
