Veteran Members of the 109th Quartermaster Company (Air Delivery) Collection (001) Finding Aid
Item Number: 0010000000   (Click For More Item Information)
 Collection

Four linear feet of materials document the 109th Quartermaster Company (Air Delivery), the 383rd Quartermaster Detachment, and the 549th Quartermaster Company's (earlier known as the 8081st Quartermaster Company) service during the Vietnam Conflict. Dates of materials range from the war era up through the 1990s.
National Security Files copied from the LBJ Library make up the bulk of the document section of the collection and contain the following: office files of Walter W. Rostow, the files of General William C. Westmoreland, National Security Council Histories, and memorandums to the President's office. The large number of declassified documents in the collection were assembled in order to illustrate the importance and priority of the airdrops at Khe Sanh, which has been minimized in the post-war years. As these documents show, of the 12,000 tons of supplies delivered to Khe Sanh during the siege, 8,000 tons were delivered by parachute and extraction systems. This significant contribution was frequently accomplished with unproven techniques. Due to the efficacy of techniques developed at Khe Sanh, Army riggers essentially 'wrote the book' on aerial delivery in Vietnam. These documents are primarily from the war era.
NOTE: The box number within parenthesis in the inventory section of this finding aid refer to the box number at the LBJ Library from which they were copied.
Also included in this document collection are company histories, orders, rosters and photograph reproductions of the 190th Quartermaster Company (Air Delivery), the 383rd Quartermaster Detachment (Air Supply) and the 549th Quartermaster Company (earlier known as the 8081st Quartermaster Company). A small group of men from this unit (8081st) trained and covertly assisted the French with airdrops during the 1954 battle of Dien Bien Phu. While on 'Temporary Duty' in Vietnam, this unit made contributions to both the Dien Bien Phu siege in 1954 and the Khe Sanh siege in 1968. Although the 549th was never assigned as a unit in Vietnam, it assisted the CIA with airdrops in Laos and rigged the supplies for the An Loc siege in Vietnam during 1972. The 383rd made major contributions in Vietnam while attached as part of the 109th Quartermaster Company and later as a separate air delivery unit.
Books, photographs, posters, museum artifacts, two VHS tapes, and periodicals make up the separated materials section of the collection and are primarily from the post-war era.
