Thomas C. Thayer, __War without Fronts__ (Westview, 1985) has some
figures for the 1969-1971 period (pp. 23-26). This is a very helpful book
in general.

Are You looking for an Official Total?
Are You including in this the cost
of Black Ops??? Are You including
in this such operations as never existed
as the ones which were conducted not directly
in Vietnam, but along the Vietnamese-Thai Border.

{ Officially we did NOT have any personnel in
Laos or Cambodia, but we did have some
Vietnamese-Thai Border operations from time to time. }
