United States Army, Thailand Order of Battle

Appendix B is from "Vietnam Order of Battle" by Shelby Stanton

Appendix B

"The United State Army build-up in Thailand can be traced to the establishment of the U. S. Military Assistance Command, Thailand on 15 May 1962. Early that year a combined U.S. task force was deployed to Thailand on a military exercise which included a Marine Battalion Landing Team (BLT), the 1st Battle Group. 27th Infantry* [25th Infantry Division] and supporting elements under a detachment of the 9th Logistical Command. They were joined by a army aviation company composed of Caribou aircraft on 10 July 1962. In late August the 1st Battle Group, 35th Infantry* [25th Infantry Division] replaced the 1st Battle Group, 27th Infantry. However, this task force was withdrawn November 1962 after the situation in Laos stabilized. In the meantime, several U.S. Army units had been sent to Thailand on a permanent basis and by November 1966 the U.S. Army Support Command, Thailand, was established." These Army units fulfilled direct or indirect support functions related to the Vietnam conflict to the extent that most received Vietnam service credit in recognition of their supporting role.

On March 31 1972 its assets were used to form HHD, 3rd Battalion, 1st Special Forces Group [Airborne], 1st Special Forces.
