44th Medical Brigade
44th Medical Brigade Which the 45th Surg was under ! The 44th Medical Brigade was the Army's major medical command in the Republic of Vietnam and, at one point, controlled 165 medical support units and more than 9,000 personnel (currently more than 7,000). The Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment was constituted in the Regular Army on Dec. 30, 1965, and then activated on New Year's Day 1966 at Fort Sam Houston, Tex. Ordered to Vietnam, the Brigade arrived in Saigon and set up its headquarters in a group of villas in April 1966. Becoming operational in May, the Brigade was reassigned directly under U.S. Army, Vietnam, and one month later moved its headquarters to Long Binh. On March 1, 1970, the United States Army Medical Command, Vietnam, was organized as a result of consolidating the 44th Medical Brigade and the USARV surgeon's office. The 44th Medical Brigade has been re-activated at Fort Meade, Md. The medical command organization eliminated duplication of effort, reduced manpower requirements by 17 per cent and provided a headquarters that would be more responsible to drawdown requirements. The mission of the United States Army Medical Command, Vietnam, is to provide medical service support to U.S. Army personnel, Free World Military Assistance Forces personnel and other catagories of personnel as directed.

Medical Units in Vietnam
  The Following List of Notes were taken from the Book "Vietnam Order of Battle",
A Complete Illustrated Reference to U.S. Army Combat and Support Forces in Vietnam
1961 - 1973. Copyright MCMLXXXI by Shelby L. Stanton, Captain
Shelby L. Stanton, U.S. Army, Retired. There is far more information in his book than
will be listed here.
If you want more information buy the book, I did and it's worth every penny.
I do not make any money from this book endorsement, nor do I make any money from
this web site, however, I do spend my own money to bring this information to you.
I thought it would be easier to see when each unit existed, to make it easier to find our old
combat buddies after 30 + years of trying to forget, but you know there just ain't
no forgetten, cause the damned new media won't let us.
