Judge Advocates in Vietnam: Army Lawyers in Southeast Asia, 1959-1975
By Frederic L. Borch III
This text tells the story of Army lawyers in headquarters units, such as the Saigon-based Military Assistance Command, Vietnam. It also examines the individual
experiences of judge advocates in combat organizations, for example II Field Force, 1st Air Cavalry Division, and the 25th Infantry Division. Almost without
exception, Army lawyers serving in Vietnam recognized that the unconventional nature of guerilla warfare required them to practice law in
new and non-traditional ways. Consequently, many judge advocates serving in Vietnam between 1959 and 1975 looked for new ways to use their talents and
abilities—both legal and non-legal—to enhance mission success.
