500th Transportation Group [CRB Support Command]

This Truck Group had the mission of providing motor transport operations in southern II Corps under the control of the Cam Ranh Bay Support Command. Although this command was probably intended to be the major supply source for all of Vietnam, Saigon remained the center of activity. The 500th Group was reorganized out of existence as a motor transport unit and the truck battalions were reassigned. The 39th Battalion moved to Tuy Hoa, then Phan Rang and finally way up north to Danang area. The 39th Battalion is included here although it really moved around.
