1LT Calvin Arthur Greene
December 19, 1967 | South Vietnam
1LT Greene was on a Long Range Reconnaissance mission when his patrol came under attack and he was KIA, leading his team, while assigned to E Company (Long Range Patrol) 20th Infantry (Airborne), First Field Force Vietnam.
Our Unit was organized with highly trained and motivated soldiers, most of whom had at least 6 months in combat and had undergone an intensive selection program before being assigned. The unit was organized to provide long range reconnaissance, surveillance, target acquisition, and special type missions in a corp level basis and usually operated in 4-6 men teams. The company also had the capacity to operate as a platoon size force and conduct regular recon-in-force missions. At times, they were attached to Special Forces units and were trained by them at the MACV Recondo School in Nha Trang, South Vietnam.
