Before the 1st Cav Arrived


This was our “rear area” in Tay Ninh base camp when I arrived in August 1968. After the 1st Cav arrived in late 1968 or early 1969 our rear area moved to 2 buildings with no sandbags. Even worse the new area had no bunker to hide in during mortar and rocket attacks. After moving this crappy area seemed like a resort.

The smoke in the rear is from shit burning. We fouled Vietnam with this practice!
