U.S. Army Major Greg Schrein, who is stationed at Fort Leavenworth and is working on his MA in Military History at the Command and General Staff College, has chosen the early advisory efforts in Vietnam (1955-62) as the focus of his thesis. “I am specifically examining if experiences of advisers in Korea during the Korean War were transferred to the effort in Vietnam, ” he told us.
For his research, Major Schrein would like to interview MAAG-V veterans “who may be interested in sharing some insight into the early efforts.” That especially includes people who served in both Korea (from 1949-43) and in Vietnam.
