Base Camp

 

Base Camps were large perminant instillations that conained the combat support services and empty homes of field units. As a battery we spent 3 days in base camp during my 376 day tour and our “rear area” was staffed by a few people. Tay Ninh had a PX, a post office, various medical units and normal support units. Hong Kong and Korean taylors had shops where a sharp custom made suit could be had for $20 to $30 on delivery. A local capitalist opened a steam bath/massage parlor and lines formed for admission. Getting a seam bath in the heat of Vietnam made little sense without the young female Vietnamese massage workers
