SFC Larry G. Mills Long Hai 1972?

Hello Gentlemen,
my name is Wade Krawczyk and I am in Brisbane Australia.

I am a military historian, and have just added to my collection a very large lot to a Green beret, who's second tour had him at the Long Hai school USARV training FANK from Dec 1971 to Dec 1972. I wondered if by chance anyone knew him?

His name is SFC Larry G. Mills, and his specialty was weapons loader. His items included FANK insignia, an AATTV patch, and various papers. Still on the way are a bunch of his uniforms (ERDLs and Jungle greens, including the 'Republique Khmer' arcs) and equipment. It was great to see he had an AATTV patch, as well as a very used pair of Ausssie GP boots and a boonie.

I am just contacting people who were at Long Hai at that time to see if they knew him, so I can build a record of his time there. I have not even seen a photograph of him as someone bought those at a yard sale previously. I also missed his FANK beret which was a drag and the current owner of the rest of his gear has a couple of terrific long Hai plaques to him. Of course the training of FANK is fascinating, and the Australian connection very strong.

Prior to this Mills was first tour 1967-68 serving as Demo in A-241 Polei Kleng and then as Lt Weapons A-244 Dak To/Ben Het

Many thanks for your time. If anyone has photos of Mills, or any details about him I would like to add them to his archive.
