This page contains links to all units serving with or supporting the 4th Infantry Division in Vietnam.

Click here for graphics to aid you in understanding unit sizes and the ranks of their leaders.


Please help add to this section with your own stories, photos, and memories.

I will add links for any group I may have missed.  I especially need more information about our support units.
Contact me and get material to me in any form ... audio recordings, written notes, documents, photos... I will edit and format it properly and let you proof read it, before I put it on the site.  All materials will be returned to you after making digital computer readable copies and will send you copies of the digital files.
I would also love to meet with any of you and sit on the front porch, or talk over the phone to do an interview, or just reminisce about the war.
I especially need members of these units to help me get it straight.  I would also appreciate your knowledge about other sources of information about your unit.
