Headquarters and
Headquarters Company
Headquarters was the support services for the brigade troops and
Headquarters Company was the support staff, thus the title
Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC or Hq&HqCo).   
This sector included the Orderly Room, the Mess Hall, The
Dispensary, troop quarters (hooches) and other buildings yet to
be identified.  The Company sector was located south from the

Commentary:  Building K identified.  In the veteran's own words,
Julio,     Building K in the above photo is the commo shop which housed our radio repair gear, all the telephone
wire, and switchboards for the field—except the equipment that I took care of.—SP4 Dave Pechtold, 1966.  
Commentary:  Building I indentified.  In the veteran's own words:  
Julio,  In the photos of the HHC area where some of the buildings need identification, the hut labeled “I” was
the S-4 (battalion supply) building in the summer of 1970.—SGT John Pierson, 1970
