The following information was taken from http://www.war-stories.com/after-action.htm

I used step one (I did not attempt to use the second step) of this information in securing the 5th Division, 1st Brigade S-2/3 daily journals, July 30 - Aug 5 1969. This information is posted in the history section of the website. The author of this article use the term "free"; in my case - free was a relative term - there is a .50 charge for copying each page. There was no charge for doing the research. Also since the turn around time can vary greatly, do not become discouraged or frustrated remember you are dealing with an under staffed and overworked group of people. I would recommend you do not request more than one week's search of the records at one time, due to the number of duplicated pages of information your search may access. The staffers copy every page they come across that is within the search framework.

If anyone should choose to pursue this means as a way to secure A Troop History please let us know so the effort, time, and expense will not be duplicated. Should a group of troopers wish to become involved in a project using this means of gathering information please let me know and I would be happy to coordinate the project. C. Cooper

Information for this site has been and will continue to be gathered from many different sources. It is intended as a place for fellow troopers, family and friends of A Troop 4th Squadron 12th Cavalry (Vietnam Era) to visit, seek contact with, gather information or some insight into the history, language and jargon of the people who were part of A Troop, then and now. A Troop 4/12 Cav (Vietnam Era) invites and encourages trooper's family members to participate in the troop's reunions, memorial services, remembrances of our fellow troopers who have passed on to Fiddler's Green, and to continue the camaraderie of the BROTHERHOOD....Long Live the Cav and its BROTHERHOOD!!
