I worked with the Security Police at Takhli in May-June of 69 for a month as a guard on the perimeter. Machine gun bunkers, guard towers, patrol. The SPS guys were a bunch of great guys. I regret I don't remember names. I have a disability claim in process for exposure to herbicides while pulling that augmentee duty. Of course, no one put any note in my records of any kind about that duty. That seems to be fairly common of former augmentees.
Are you aware of SPS keeping some kind of list,official or otherwise, of who they had on loan to them as augmentees for other base units? Any photos of SPS guys and Augmentee guys standing in loose formation each night before going out on post? Duty rosters? I can't imagine how they could have people on duty with them and not have any kind of record keeping on it. The same is true of the augmentee's "home" unit. There normal job or MOS on the base. Maybe they did exist and somehow those records disappered over the years.
If you are aware of lists or photos like that do you have any idea of where I or the DVA could find such proof of augmentee duty?
