281st AHC TASK ORGANIZATION
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.
