Special Forces Camps in Vietnam

BTW, Some of the information on some of the maps may be incorrect, but I am trying to make them as accurate as possible. If you see a discrepency, let me know.

Area Maps of Special Forces Camps

     These maps were extracted from Jim Henthorn's Vietnam Vet page: All rights reserved. To view complete set of high res maps of South Vietnam and Laos visit Jim's web site. He's in the process of scanning and posting maps of N VN, Thailand and Cambodia.

     (Also see ALO/FAC, George Lattin's The FAC's Map Case  for maps of VN, N Laos and S Laos.)

Area maps of the camps will be posted at random as I locate them on Jim's maps. Any errors placing the camps are mine, not Jim's. Any help in placing the camps is greatly appreciated. (Am having particular difficulty finding IV Corps Camps on the maps.)

If anyone has any information about SF Camps in Thailand, let me know and I will attempt to locate the camp on Jim's page and post an area clip here.
