"Delta Six:" Assuming Command in Duc Ton District

1/5/70

Amb. Quinn recounts how at age 28 he was transferred to Duc Ton District in Sa Dec Province to head the U.S. Army military advisory team there. As this area was a largely military combat setting, this assignment posed questions about the type of leadership he, a civilian, would provide to his U.S. Army team.
