    Seeking Orders of First Mobile Communications Group during Vietnam War


      Many members of the 1st Mobile Communications Group were sent to Vietnam and Thailand during the Vietnam War.  The nature of their work was highly classified and their discharge documents (DD214) did not reflect service in the combat zone.  I would hope that the orders would have been declassified by now.  Those orders will probably be required for a member to obtain an amended discharge document.
