567th Transportation Company (Terminal Service)
    The 567th Transportation Company, commonly referred to as the Pier Masters, arrived in Vietnam during  August 1966  from Fort  Story,  Virginia,  with the 71st Transportation
    Battalion (Terminal) and was assigned  the mission of port and beach clearance within the Newport complex. During May 1969,  with the  activation of the  US Army Transportation
    Battalion,  Saigon (Provisional), the Pier Masters were transferred to that headquarters and relocated to Camp Davies, near Saigon. The unit was  assigned the mission  of cargo
    discharge/backload and port clearance of one military deep draft berth  and berths  of opportunity  in the  commercial port  of  Saigon  and supervising   two contract stevedore  
    companies.  During August 1969,  the unit began assisting  ARVN Saigon Transportation Terminal Command  to train crews and, later  the same year, charged ARVN with the
    responsibility of discharging  all ships with primarily  ARVN cargo--the beginning of  the Vietnamization program for ports in Vietnam. During December 1969, the 567th
    Transportation Company was transferred to Long Binh Post for duty with the 79th Maintenance Battalion.

    Also, an  update from Ted  Wolf (567th 66-67)  noting that the 567th sent a detachment of its troops from  the 2nd  shore and  2nd ship platoons to  Dong Tam in January of  1967.  
    They were under the supervision of Capt.Greg initially and then LT Hunt.
