The 560th Light Equipment Maintenance Company (Direct Support) was initially billeted at the 5th Maintenance Battalion (Direct Support) compound located in the southern part of Phu Tai Valley. In February 1968 it was relocated to Camp Radcliff at An Khe in the Central Highlands just off of Route QL19 that ran between Qui Nhon and Pleiku. This unit provided direct support functions to many of the non-divisional units in their area of operation. This included but was not limited to vehicle maintenance support for several transportation units. The unit was deactivated in December 1970.
