Company Daily Records (not recommended for PTSD patients or under 17.)
I started looking looking for information on C 1/5, a gentlemen from
C 2/5 helped me get started ....He recalled....
*1st Cav Division had around 12000 soldiers.
*A division was divided into 3 brigades then it breaks down into battalions, companies, platoons then squads. The brigades are broken down into 4 battalions. Then in each battalion were 4 companies and Captains led the companies. Then in each company were platoons and in each platoon were squads.
*Hueys carried around 8 troops
*Infantrymen saw 240 days of combat compare that to WWII who saw around 40 days.
*LZ information were determined by cold (BLUE) and hot (RED), hot meant it was hostile while cold meant friendly and usually the soldiers knew before landing.
