I served with the 56th Signal Co DS/85th Lt. Maintenance Co DS April '66 to April '66. The 56th arrived in Qui Nhon about May '65. They were one of the first units in the big build up to arrive. The 56th and the 85th were part of the 5th Maintenance Bn. In August '66 a reorganization took place and the 56th was split into two companies, the 85th Lt. Maintenance Co. DS and another (552nd maybe?). I was assigned to the 85th Maintenance. 1Lt Douglas Crawford was the first CO of the 85th. Capt. Young arrived later in '66 and became CO. The 85th moved to Da Nang late in '66 and became part of the Da Nang Sub Area Command.

I was the Technical Supply Officer, Platoon Leader and PBO for the 85th. I was also Technical Supply Officer for the Da Nang Sub Area Command.

I really enjoyed the Website and hope you add more infornmation on the other units in the 5th Maintenance Bn.
