DTOC Logs- The Americal Division recorded the minute-by-minute activities of the units in the division in a log (journal) at the Division Tactical Operations Center (DTOC) in Chu Lai. Photocopies of DTOC logs were obtained by ADVA Vietnam Historian Les Hines and other historical researchers. Credit is due for the tremendous effort by Bruce Flaherty and Larry Swank in obtaining the Division TOC reports from the National Archives as well as the equally daunting efforts of the team headed by Conrad Geibel and John Boyer. They spent years of effort before we could get to this point (100% done as of August 1, 2018).
Transcriptions of these logs were created to facilitate easier access as they are searchable in most .pdf readers. The DTOC logs are transcribed in editions covering one month at a time and may be 100 to 150 pages in length. The links below cover the indicated months. More months will be added when transcription is complete. Below is an index of DTOC Logs that are now available. They are sorted by year and month in ascending order.
