U.S. Army history does not mention Fort Hood as the site of reactivation of XXIV Corps in 1968. XXIV Corps was reactivated by orders of General William Westmoreland in Saigon, and the reactivation was in Phu Bai, site of the already-existing Provisional Corps, Vietnam. (See http://www.history.army.mil/books/Vietnam/northern/nprovinces-ch4.htm). The article also does not mention that Provisional Corps, Vietnam was a redesignation of MACV Forward which was established during Tet of 1968. Gen, Westmoreland ordered its creation on 25 January 1968 under the command of Gen. Creighton Abrams. It deployed to Phu Bai on 9 February 1968. MACV Forward was redesignated as Provisional Corps, Vietnam on 10 March 1968, under the command of Lt. Gen. William B. Rosson. Lynn D.
