Abstract:

The Army Concept Team in Vietnam evaluated the 458th Transportation Company from 1 March 1970 through 30 April 1971. The purpose of the evaluation was to determine adequacy of current company organization, support concepts, and adequacy of presently utilized equipment. Composed of 162 men and officers, the company originally had 39 Patrol Boats, River PBRs, 18 Boston Whalers BWs, and was physically located at six outpost detachments, a company headquarters at Di An, and a maintenance detachment at Nha Be. This evaluation revealed that the missions assigned are realistic and techniques utilized at the various detachments are effective.
