The tireless efforts of Lt. Col. Lindsey and those of his daughter to document for posterity the service of those of us who had the privilege of serving in Command and Control South (CCS), is greatly appreciated. This work documents with great accuracy the actions of the officers and men of CCS to accomplish the mission of the unit. I am proud to have served as a medic in the unit and under Lt. Col. Lindsey. This document portrays the lives and the deaths of many of those served with honor and distinction in this Top Secret unit. We cannot thank Lt. Col. Lindsey enough for giving accurate voice to a little known but highly effective unit in the Viet Nam war. Thank You.

Kenneth "Doc" Quackenbush, Medic CCS 1969-1970

We knew they were where they weren't supposed to be but now have a precise description of what was going on for these brave men. It had to take years to get all that information gathered. I am thankful to Fred Lindsey and all the named and unnamed heros.

Format: Paperback
LTC Fred Lindsey's meticulous research and dogged determination to get to the men who ran the missions has resulted in a tremendously well-documented research tool for historians interested in filling in the huge gaps in the history of MACVSOG's Command and Control South detachment. The timing of this work could not have been more critical, since so many of the men who fought in this ultra-secret unit are leaving us to finally join teammates that never made it home. Fred filled in gaps in these histories up until the last minute, finding men who had been living quiet lives after getting home, and interviewing them and getting additional names and details that led him further down the trail.
This large book deserves an honored place in any Vietnam War historian's library - and Fred Lindsey deserves our collective slow hand salute for his tireless and devoted efforts to preserve the history of CCS, its aviation support units and our men who did not make it home.
Superb!

Lt. Colonel Lindsey must have spent years interviewing his men after the fact to make sure he had all details and facts. This is not a quick read, but one that is incredibly interesting. This story needed to be told. We must never forget the sacrifices our Vietnam veterans made for us.
