Lonely Airstrip

Supplies delivered by Caribou cargo plane are being moved from the airstrip to the CIDG camp. If the camp needed something not in stock, it would not arrive easily or quickly. When the North Vietnamese attacked, as they often did, these people were on their own. And if something couldn’t come by air that was tough luck. Our road trips to and from FSB Ord could have been ambushed easily but our tanks, APCs and direct fire artillery discouraged most from messing with us.
