Vietnam SAR Chronology
These pages are under constant revision--Last Update: Saturday, May 09, 2009
Information published in the outline is in most cases raw data excerpted from primary sources. All of it will be rewritten in a story type format. In a few cases it has already been refined into a draft story. The outline is presented here for critical review. Are the facts correct? Did you participate in any of these events? Are names spelled correctly? Do you have information on missions missing from this rough outline? Do you have a photo or primary source material related to something provided in the outline. E-mail me with information to update this information. Rest assured that your inputs will be seriously considered. I am striving for accuracy above all else.
The outline was created in early 1998 and updated in 2001. The information in the outline is raw data. Just because it came from a primary source does not guarantee its accuracy. Occasionally, individuals who wrote unit histories or mission reports inadvertently included incorrect information. If you believe something is incorrect e-mail me with your concerns.
Some of these files are dozens of pages long and may take up to 30 seconds to load with a 56k modem. Please be patient. The wait will be worth it.
Note: Codes following information are road maps designed by me to lead me back to the primary source document. They most likely not make any sense to you, so just ignore them.
Note: If you have information that should be added, then send me an e-mail.
