partial History of the TOW Team from a Veteran
Consisted of 12 personnel from Ft. Ord, California who were TDY at Ft. Lewis, Washington
to conduct European environment experiments against an Air Defense Artillery Group.
From there we were suppose to go to: Ft. Riley, Kansas, Ft. Hood, Texas, and then back to Fort Ord.
While at Ft. Lewis the NVA started using tanks and we didn't have anything that could stop them short of destroying an
entire village. The TOW Team deployed overnight to Vietnam in March of 1972.
We accompanied our aircraft (UH-1Bs with XM-26 Weapons Systems) on a C-141 to Saigon, RVN.
After we put our aircraft back together they couldn't decide where to send us. The choices were An Khe or Kontum.
They decided Kontum so we flew to Camp Holloway, outside of Pleiku, where we were based.
Our Area of Operations(AO) was Kontum and we were there until the press found us.
The next day we were sent home and the aircraft were turned over to another local team to finish.
Our aircraft were later used at Ah Khe, RVN
The TOW Team patches were made at the PX in Camp Holloway and worn on the right breast.
This Army website ( http://tri.army  dot mil/LC/CS/csa/xm26tow.htm ) shows our Team our last day in Camp Holloway.
The civilians were the Hughes Aircraft Developement Team.

More History from a Veteran of the 163rd (from email 111222)
"I served June 1969 - June 1970 with the 163rd Avn Co (GS) at Camp Eagle RVN as a 67B20 Single-Engine Observation Utility Fixed Wing Aircraft Mechanic. The only fixed wing aircraft in the entire 101st Airborne Division was at Phu Bai and it was a U-6A DeHavilland Beaver. The 163rd had 5 aircraft mechanics assigned to this unit, but only one could be the paid crew chief. So I was put in the Hangar as Operational Readiness Clerk and worked in the Company Motor Pool as assistant Motor Sgt. We had 2 ea 1/2 ton M274A5 Army Mules, several M37B1 3/4 Ton Trucks and M35A1 2-1/2 Ton Trucks, and 1 ea M151A1 for the Commander!
I wanted to set the record clear that the 101st Airborne Division did have a Fixed Wing Aircraft."
