     For those of us who served in Vietnam and wish to know specifically where, when, with whom, and what operations we participated, the information available in the various documents contained in the DVDs that are available on this page (with more to follow) will help to answer those questions.  I have just learned that the going price for internet providers to obtain these same  documents (as well as others) for you from the National Archives is $50/hour--this may or may not include price per copy/page, which adds up quickly.  I have personally visited the National Archives and copied some of my After Action Reports and one can spend a hundred dollars making copies.  This was back in late 1990s.     

     In coming weeks, I plan to add more digital copies of Unpublished Government Documents that over the past three plus decades I have collected for my research to document the 3-506th history and write four of my books about my unit's involvement in the Vietnam War. Listed among the DVDs  include Operational Reports--Lessons Learned/After Action Reports (1st Bde/101st, 101st Div., 4th Infantry Div., 173rd Bde., IFFV, 3-506th, 5/25th Artillery, etc.,  After Action Reports, Combat Action Reports, Morning Reports, Officers Daily Journals, Daily Staff Journal/Duty Officer's Logs, etc. for IFFV, 1st Brigade, 101st Abn. Div., plus others will be added. Some of these same documents are available elsewhere on the internet, while others must be obtain from the National Archives.  Among these listed are rare and unavailable now, such as "The Combat After Action Report - Phan Thiet, dtd. 1 March 1968.  Also difficult to find these days are the very first "Daily Situation Reports, 3rd Battalion (Airborne), 506th Infantry, Phan Rang (10 November 1967 - 31 December 1967 (Operation ROSE & KLAMATH FALLS), Plus "1st Brigade, 101st Abn. Div., Phan Rang, Situation Reports (25 November 1967 - 7 January 1968) - Operation KLAMATH FALLS

     I make these documents available for Veterans and their families for numerous reasons; who need answers about their service in Vietnam, working on their unit history, or for pure research purposes, or possibly to support an active VA Claims.  Postage outside USA will be additional cost.  If you have questions concerning which documents I have,  please contact me at: jerryberry@currahee.org..
