Howdy John;

You must be referring to the 93rd Evacuation Hospital (Semi-Mobile). According to the order-of-battle of the 44th Medical Brigade in Vietnam (see http://the45thsurg.freeservers.com/custom7.html ), the 93rd Evac. was stationed at Long Binh from 11/4/65 to 1966 and then at Da Nang from 1966 to 3/28/73. I'm totally ignorant as to how Army medical units are structured. Would the Graves Registration unit be a company-sized unit? If you were assigned to that unit, there will be a record of it in the Company Morning Reports, but you will have to know the approximate dates of your arrival to and/or departure from the company in order to request copes of the appropriate Morning Reports from the National Archives and Records Administration.

If you were never actually assigned to the Graves Registration unit, but were just "present", then you have a problem. The only homepage for the 93rd Evac. is at http://www.military.com/HomePage/UnitCreatedPage/0,11003,108048,00.html . They have 44 members on their roster 5 of whom have dates of service which overlap yours.

For those who don't know what a Graves Registration unit does, they are essentially the Army's undertakers. They prepare the bodies of our country's KIAs for burial with full military honors. Service in such a unit has long been recognized as being prone to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
