The Cacti Document Repository

For some time now members of the "Cacti" Association have been gathering historical documents covering our involvement in the Vietnam War. Many of you who are fortunate enough to own computers and have access to the internet may have seen some of these reports posted to the web. Those of you without that luxury have no access at all, except through high priced "research" companies. Until recently, these efforts were completed with individual "Cactis" own funds. With the recent rise to 50 cents per page for the cost of ordering documents from the National Archives, that effort is being jeopardized. We are offering these documents to you at prices we hope you will find affordable. Our goal is to keep costs to a minimum and yet generate some funds for future research work. Many of you will want to have a copy of some of these reports for your own personal libraries. Special pricing is available to members of the 35th Infantry Regiment Association. Below you will find pricing for members and for non-members. Even our non-member pricing is below that of the National Archives. For members of the Association the pricing is better then if you could get there and make copies yourself. For ordering and pricing information please see below.

To Order Please Contact: Jim Anderson, 12364 Bayhill Drive, Burlington, WA 98233

Tel. (360) 757-7562; Fax (360) 757-8934

All prices are marked. Add shipping and handling of $5.00 per order under 50 pages; $7.50 for orders from 101 to 250 pages; and $10.00 per order over 251 pages. Please note that these documents are copies of copies and may be difficult to read or decipher. 

Those of you that are able to attend this years reunion in Kansas City will be able to read many of these documents listed below. Another great reason to plan to attend now.

 

Daily Journals 2/35th: Daily Staff Journals contain the minute by minute and hour by hour communications between the line companies and the battalion headquarters. Generally they are from 5 to 15 pages in length and occasionally contain attached sketches of location and movements of the line companies. We have not bothered to count the pages for each day or month but they generally average about 200 pages per month. The following are available at 15 cents per page to 35th Infantry Regiment Association Members and 50 cents per page to non-members.
