Welcome to MinRon 11 Det Alfa / Mine Division 112
This site was established to serve as a tribute to the sailors who served in MinRon 11 Detachment Alfa (1966-1968) / Mine Division 112 (1968-1970) during the Vietnam War, and is dedicated to those that sacrificed their lives doing so. Photos, biographies, and stories are posted here to give an account of their history serving on MSB’s (Mine Sweeping Boat) in the Brown Water Navy from 1966-1970.
Please take a look at the roster being compiled of the young men who served, some of whom have provided photos for this site.
A page titled “Early History” is here to give information about the early years of mine sweepers and the sailors of the Small Minesweeping Boats.
If you or someone you know served in MinRon 11 Detachment Alfa / Mine Division 112 during the Vietnam War, please contact us.
We hope you enjoy this site.
