Abstract:

The document reports the preparation for and the redeployment of the 199th Infantry Brigade Separate Light from the Republic of Vietnam during the period 1 September to 12 October 1970. This redeployment and subsequent inactivation of the Redcatcher Brigade closes a period of four and one half years of active service, including 47 months of combat. The report covers the last seven weeks of the Brigades active service in Vietnam and is an explication of the mechanics of disengaging from combat operations, disposing of the Brigades TO and E and PC and S property, and processing almost 5000 of its personnel for reassignment. This report is written with the intent that it be useful to other units involved in redeployment operations.
