RT Illinois under 1-0 John Plaster贋夘and 1-1 Bill Spencer sometime in late 1969.
When Plaster rotated home for extension leave, Bill Spencer got antsy and joined a 5th Group MIKE Force operation down in Bu Dop. He was KIA on 29 December 1969

Allen Sammartino,Lynn Moss,Steve Keever

Harold Hill, Alvin McDonald, and Mike Roberts with their merry little band of marauders known as RT Illinois. TF2AE (CCC), late `71. Sometime around February of 1972, 1-0 Alvin McDonald gathered his team in full combat loadouts including full rucksacks. The entire team quietly filed out the compound¨s south gate for their regularly-scheduled afternoon run as part of their training regimen. Several days later, Alvin and Harold returned to base without their indigs, claiming they¨d gone AWOL (absent without leave). Fact is SOG was transitioning to all-ARVN teams as Vietnamization was increasing amid the US withdrawal. Seeing the writing on the wall, Alvin and his 1-1 loaded their Yards down with as much food and ammo as they could carry, marched with them out of the compound, and bid their farewells. Their fates remain unknown...
