D Troop 1/10th Cavalry, 1966-1971

“The Original D Troop”

Shamrocks in Vietnam

We’re the web “Base Camp” for Veterans who served with the US Army’s
D Troop, 1st Squadron, 10th Cavalry, in Vietnam, 1966-1971.

D Troop’s distinctive “Shamrock” and “Crossed Saber” aircraft markings became well known to units of its parent 4th Infantry Division and other Army elements in the Central Highlands operating area. Originally based at “Dragon Mountain Base Camp” (Camp Enari) near Pleiku, D Troop moved to Camp Radcliff at An Khe in 1970, and later to Lane Army Airfield near Qui Nhon.

For Veteran Shamrocks, D Troop was a unit that served with dogged distinction throughout its involvement in the Vietnam conflict, yet never lost it’s uniqueness and quirky independence.  This site is dedicated to all who made this unit such a special place to serve.

Since 2004, D Troopers from all the years the unit served in Vietnam have been rediscovering Brothers and building new friendships while sharing in our reunions and contact network.  If you are a Vietnam-era D Trooper, have a relative or friend who was, or if you would just like to know more about this special unit, we invite you to contact us and begin sharing in our unique “family”.
