SPECIAL BOAT UNIT LINKS   

MST-2 Det Alpha, 1967, is documented by Jim Born in his nifty site.

Classmates.com has a Military division, with BSU-1 listed under Coronado NAB. You can register there for free, and I recommend it, but it costs something like $36 for a "Gold Membership," which is what you need to contact the people listed.
