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?

Fantastic group.


That clothing lot had many hidden gems and sold for a good price.


Has any of the duck hunting camo been modified?

Not duck hunter camo it is all Vietnamese made Leopard / Beo Gam pattern.
