    Gary L. Knepp: Do you have additional information about other land-clearing teams in Viet Nam. I was in one based in Bear Cat and was in the field with a land-clearing team in 1968 that cleared around Long Bien and Bear Cat. I left Viet Nam while my unit was on a maintenance standdown (preparing to go into Cambodia) in Sept of 1968. Can you send me any infomation you may have? Thanks!
