Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Notes: Initially raised as the 4th Infantry Division which existed briefly in the 1950s but renamed 22nd Division, because four is an unlucky number in Vietnamese society. The ARVN 2nd and 4th Light Divisions were formed in 1955; with the 4th being renamed as the 14th Light Division in 1956. Combined to form the 22nd Division in 1959. The division served near Kon Tum and in the Central Highlands. The division was destroyed in 1972. Having been rebuilt it was in Binh Dinh province in 1975. The division moved to the south of Saigon as the Central Highlands fell. One of the last ARVN units to surrender.
