ORGANIZATIONAL CHART

When the 281st first organized at Fort Benning, it stood up with a Headquarters and Service Platoon but without flight platoons.  Additionally it had the 483rd Transportation Detachment and the 499th Signal Detachment attached.  Upon arrival in RVN, the 281st absorbed the 2/171st which had recently been formed by combining the 145th and 6th Aviation Platoons (Airlift).  Once this was accomplished the 281st was complete.  The unit was assigned to the 1st Aviation Brigade, 17th Combat Aviation Group, 10th Combat Aviation Battalion and attached under Operational Control to the 5th Special Forces Group (ABN).  Eventually the 483rd and 499th were stood down and absorbed into the 281st AHC.

The above icons are linked to sites that give a brief history of these entities.  Additionally, there will be more expanded information on the the individual platoons.  The individual patches are linked to websites some are part of this website and some are personal websites.  Some links go to individual websites, they will go to a new frame, to return to the 281st AHC Assn.
