    Seeking records of 572nd Transportation Company

    Rodger Fitzgerald Newbie

      We are looking for our companies history, daily records and photographs for the year 1968 In Vietnam. The company was the 572nd Transportation Company, 7th transportation Battalion, 48th Transportation Group. We were a line haul company that supplied ammo and c-rations to the firebase camps in Quang Tri and Dong Ha. We are trying to determine the best place to start to locate the records.
