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.
