185th Recon Airplane Co.

This page last updated Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2010.

This is a web page dedicated to the officers and men of the 1st Avn Brigade, 223rd Avn Bn, 185th Recon Airplane Co. "Pterodactyls" based at Camp Coryell, Ban Me Thout, Republic of Vietnam, 1967-71. The 185th was a fixed (starched) wing unit flying the old Cessna O-1 Birddog.

I hope to be able to develop a history of the 185th and included in these pages are photos from my collection. There were field platoons at Gia Nghia, Cheo Reo, and Bao Loc. I only have pics of Camp Coryell, Gia Nghia and Bao Loc. If any reader is a past member of the 185th and would like their photos included or have information on other past members, sign my guest book, and please send me an e-mail.

I will do my best to keep the page updated and include your pictures with credits.
