Vietnam 5th SFG & FANK Advisor Grouping


Recommended Posts

Large grouping of items relating  to SFC. Larry G. Mills. SFC. Mills served with the 5th & 7th SFG. SFC. Mills completed  pre-deployment RVN training with 7th SFG at Ft. Bragg in May, 1966 & Radix lists him being stationed with 5th SFG detachment A-241 (Polei Kleng) from January, 1967 - June, 1968. Second tour in Vietnam in 1971-1972  as a FANK Advisor at the Long Hai Training Battalion (also advisor on rebuild of the ARVN 21th & 39th Ranger Battalions, along with the 56th Infantry Regiment in May-June, 1972).  I'll add some better photos over the next few days.

Those padded winter trousers remind me of North Korean or Chinese? hard to say. Maybe NVA?

Always looking for Vietnam War US Special Forces/MACV-SOG jungle shirts/uniforms and OG107 Shirts/uniforms.
