You should put this together and sell it on DriveThruRPG.

I've thought about it with the revival in interest in T2K products, but there's not really enough here to sell, not to mention the thorny rights issues for some of the illustrations.

Very early draft of converting the TO&E document for the Tactical Carrier company over to a more easily accessible format.

Perhaps as part of a larger compilation?

Sure, I could at least stick the ORBAT stuff as an article in a compilation or zine with images I can get approval for.

I've actually finished something. Attached is the complete TO&E for the separate Transportation Company (Tactical Carrier) with as many notes from the original document as were relevant.

Also attached is the latest version of the Unit Histories and Locations. New for this first (posted) numbered revision: California National Guard Reserve (short article, OOB, and added to the Histories/Locations), short article on the M103A1E2 (a wartime improvement to the M103 heavy tank), short article on British wartime tanks.

Some moderate overhauls: Found a copy of the California Adjutant General's report online, giving a breakdown of the 40th AD's organization by Combat Command. Also added a bunch more non-divisional units from California, Maryland, Mississippi, and Alabama. Also some more information on Reserve Special Forces unit locations. Combed through the Army Reservist again to find a few more areas that contributed detachments to the early 60s USAR Special Forces Groups.

And there's a new cover image.

Update to the unit locations and histories. Added 67th Infantry Brigade, 69th Infantry Brigade, and 231st Armor Group (plus first hints of the US situation in Yugoslavia) histories.

Changed 163rd ACR and 6th ACR histories plus locations. Altered the order of battle for CONUS forces in the Southern Theatre.

Additional consistency changes ongoing. Missed a few '=' bars to indicate wartime raised units and didn't italicize some destroyed units in the unit history section.

New update: More military police, military intelligence, and Army Security Agency units. Also attached are strength levels for Army nurses in Evacuation hospitals and MASH units, as well as distribution of shotguns to NIKE missile batteries.

Very early draft of the Air National Guard order of battle. It includes assigned aircraft and home stations, along with the tactical reorganization proposed for adoption in 1962.

Slowly but surely tackling everything I intend to. This may be the last major update. That's been said before, I know, but for the first time there's no real big gaping hole of research I feel hasn't been covered so barring any glaring errors I've missed thus far this will be the final version of the OOB. The Air National Guard OOB has some more work and supplementary pieces to go in it, however that's a much less demanding piece of work overall.

I still have no intention of covering the Regular Army Divisions' makeup. You can find those OOBs on Wikipedia in a lot of cases that are as accurate as what I do, mostly, so I don't feel the need to reprint that. This whole business has a sisyphean feeling anyway.

New is an appendix covering non-divisional Regular Army units, their locations, assignments if known to non-divisional HQ units, and some clean-up to other parts (No one commented on Fort Carson, CA? I'm shocked). Included is a neat potential starting point for a squad, the uniquely organized 2nd Battle Group, 31st Infantry stationed at the Aviation School in Fort Rucker.

As soon as I can get my account back (email address change missed this one apparently), I plan on seeing about putting this out as either community content or a system-less item on DriveThruRPG.

I've already got a draft version that strips out the images without attribution or that would cause potential rights issues, added a few more, revised text and informational errors, done some more proofing, to improve the quality for sale.

Problem is, I've got no idea if there's any interest in anyone purchasing this, or the future Air National Guard supplement, so if it's 'too much work' to get it on DriveThru then it probably won't happen. In that case the super-final "Export Edition" will end up here for free.

Rather than bother with doing my tax info for a product that's not going to sell, here's the furthest development of the project, including some new Special Forces, Transportation, Engineer, and Artillery units. Also has the most thorough editing I can give and a complete renumbering.
