US Rifle Company with Company Command Rifle team, 2iC Command Rifle team, Medic team, two Rifle platoons with Weapons squad and Command Rifle team.
Rifle platoons in Vietnam were never up to strength. Between soldiers off sick, those on leave, and casualties waiting to be replaced, a ten-man squad was lucky to have eight men available on any given day.
Each squad had two teams, each with an M79 'Blooper' grenade launcher for additional firepower. Although the riflemen were armed with the new M16E1 automatic rifle, they were trained to fire single shots except in emergencies.
