          Dear Mr. Schneider,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          According to the administrative history of the XXII Corps,the XXII Corps was constituted on January 9, 1944 in the Army of the United States and was activated on January 15, 1944 at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. It was inactivated on January 20, 1946 in Germany. The XXII Corps was allotted to the Regular Army and was redesignated on January 5, 1966 as the II Field Force. The II Field Force was activated on January 10, 1966 at Fort Hood, Texas and was redesignated on March 15, 1966 as the II Field Force Vietnam. The II Field Force Vietnam (II FFV) was the largest Army combat command in Vietnam. Headquartered at Bien Hoa, the II Field Force Vietnam was in the Republic of Vietnam between March 1966 and April 1971, assisting ARVN forces (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) in the III and IV Corps Tactical Zones, protecting Saigon, controlling U.S. military operations in the Mekong Delta, and directing the invasion of Cambodia in 1970.

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 73 series in the Records of the U.S. Forces in Southeast Asia (Record Group 472) pertaining to the II Field Force Vietnam from 1966 - 1971. For access to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.
