          Dear Mr. Ortega,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled General Orders of the 101st Airborne Division, 1967 - 1972 in the Records of the U.S. Forces in Southeast Asia (Record Group 472) that should include General Order No. 11102 dated December 25, 1968. For more information about these non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at archives2reference@nara.gov.

           

          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.

           

          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!

              Thank you for your reply. I sent an inquiry regarding the box of un-digitized records that you referenced in your reply. Apparently the entire 1968 files are missing from that box. I have figured out that perhaps (since the missing page is still going to be C Company, 1/327, 101) that perhaps A Company, and B Company, as well as HHC have a set of these records, perhaps not. They would have been issued under different General Orders, perhaps in order with the ones I do have (11101, 11103, missing 11102), Either before or after, numerically. This still leaves me at the earliest stages of my inquiry, Air Medal Orders for 1/327, specifically C Company 1/327 Infantry, 1st Brigade 101st Airborne Division, December 25, 1968, based in Phu Bai, RVN, HQ in Ben Hoa, RVN. Thank you again.
