Due to file size and number of documents, some months the unit mission reports or
encounter reports have been separated from the monthly activity / history reports.  
Important note to researchers:  These files were originally placed on Microfilm in the late 1960's - early 1970's
Some of the documents are extremely sharp and easy to read while others are difficult or illegible.  I have been
able to enhance some of the files and I am still working on others.  Although many of these files are labeled
Secret or have other classification tags, all were de-classified many years ago.
