South Vietnamese Military Unit Training

An Army school system was started to provide technical and specialist schools, arm and service basic and advanced courses, a military academy to train select young men for commissions in the Army, and a replacement training center to provide basic training for conscripts and new enlistees.

The system was built around six key centers:

1. A general school center at Thu Duc with a capacity for 1,000 students and comprising most of the arm and service technical and specialist schools;

2. Separate infantry school, to be located initially also at Thu Duc, which would include a 400student officer candidate school and later basic branch officer and noncommissioned officer courses;

3. Medical, intelligence, and psychological warfare schools to be located in the Saigon area owing to the availability of facilities and other resources;

4. Military Academy at Dalat, with a twoyear curriculum combining academic and military subjects to train new officers, to be transformed later into a fouryear institution;

  • 5.

    Higher military school or college, located in Saigon with a capacity of 250 students;

  • 6.

    Centralized replacement camp for training conscripts located at Quang Trung near Saigon and with an annual

capacity of approximately 24,000 (or about 8,000 at any one time).
