.....This web page is dedicated to the men who served in Vietnam with the 199th Infantry and especially to my husband SFC Ira "Clay" Crowder US Army retired.....


The 199th Infantry was formed on March 23,1966 at Fort Benning, Georgia. In September 1966 the 199th was sent to Camp Shelby Mississippi for advanced Infantry training. After the advaced training the unit was shipped to South Vietnam in November 1966 at Vung Tau (R & R ) site. After arriving in South Vietnam the unit was then sent to the swamp where it set up base camp. It was unnamed when the unit arrived on 9 Dec 66. It was to the right as you faced the main road to Saigon. Camp Frensell Jones was on the north side of the Railroad Tracks that seperated Long Bihn from Camp Frensell Jones which became the first home to the 199th. The 17th Cav was between the 199th Infantry and Long Binh. It also had Redcatcher forward which was located at the fishnet factory later in 1968. The 199th served in South Vietnam for 4 years and the colors were returned to Fort Benning, Georgia in 1970 and the unit was inactived. The Brigade found new life in 1991 when the remaining 3rd Brigade of the 9th Division (which was inactive),The Redcatcher patch was worn again from 1991 to 1992 at Fort Lewis, Washington. At the United States Infantry School at Fort Benning, Georgia there is a memorial deticated to the men of the 199th Infantry Brigade in front of the Museum. It was deticated March 23, 1996.
