Instructions for Searching Daily Staff Journals and Photos at The Virtual Vietnam Archive Texas Tech University.

The web address is
Texas Tech has redone the website for Viet Nam, so the instructions that were here are no longer valid.
It would be too long and I could not cover ever question that is bound to come up about searching the archives.
The best thing to do is visit the site and click on the links in the white box with the gray background. (About the

They will give you good info about getting around the site.
Most of the items you probably want to look for are in the digital records.
Just follow the instructions and you will probably get the info you want. If not, I understand they are very
helpful in answering questions.

This information was given to me by members of Echo Company who are trying to put together the Company
