New archive documents are being added as they become available. At this time 1966 and 1967 records are limited, but we are attempting to obtain as many as possible. Please check back often.
Some of the original records were copies of copies and in less than ideal condition. They have been digitally enhanced as best as possible. Not all records are complete and vary in display quality. If the reader has a cleaner copy of a report or a missing report, please share it with us.

After Action Reports - Summaries of battles, operations and activities
Daily Staff Journals/Daily Spot Journals - Battalion activities by day and time
Operation Orders/FRAG Reports - Orders and modifications to existing orders, often with overlay maps
