Coast Guard Explosive Loading Detachment Vietnam Patch
On 17 February 1966, COMUSMACV requested CINPAC ask the Commandant for two Explosives Loading Detachments [ELD], each consisting of one officer and seven enlisted. The ELD’s were to be highly trained in explosives handling, port security and also be able to instruct others in these duties. Commander in Chief, Pacific forwarded the request to JCS and the Chief of Naval Operations requested that the Coast Guard provide them. The two ELD’s were sent, with ELD #1 located at Nha Be and ELD #2 at Cam Ranh Bay.
