  2. Dog Company In war, the right man in the right place at the right time can make the difference between victory and defeat. Patrick K. O’Donnell tells the dramatic story of the 68 soldiers who served in the U.S. Army’s 2nd Ranger Battalion, Company D—“Dog Company”—who made that difference, time and again, in some of World War II’s most pivotal clashes.

  7. In the photograph below, top row center, is an early (1961) Vietnamese hand embroidered 1st SFG beret flash with crest. Top row, second flash from the right, is not a Special Forces beret flash. It is a beret flash worn by a PRU unit which operated in Tay Ninh Province.
  8. In the early days (1961 -1964) many 1st SFG and 7th SFG A Detachments were TDY to Viet Nam for six month tours.
