Cook out at the
barracks, I still have a hard time believing the Air Forces
facilities - this was a major rec area for us
coming out of the jungles. Every once in a while I still miss having a warm PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon)
it was the only beer we could get all the good stuff which was cold went to the AF personnel.
BQQ master Al Way I believe and one of these days Ill remember the other two.
Picture of Tuy Hoa take
on the day after the N. Vietnamese attack, the airstrike of the
gun ship was at an area
in the lower right hand corner which was called in by me as we were on ambush in the rice paddy. The gun ship
made three runs two using 30 cal Gatling guns and one rocket, a couple of our guys got a little burned from the brass
that was raining down on us. A little time later about 8 -10 NVA carrying litters passed between us and the perimeter
of the base and we couldnt fire without firing into the base we just had to watch them go by until they were out of the area.
