Looking to share recollections of our time in Nam with guys who served with me. Got there in time to see the Bob Hope show at Freedom Hill in 1970. Got to sit next to Admiral McCain. Also got to see the Billie Bird show when it came through our area. Was stationed just south of China Beach next to the orphanage and near the air base at Marble Mountain. Saw the chopper crash on the beach and helped get the pilot and others out. Still have the article from Stars and Stripes in anyone needs a copy. Was also there when Captain Cordon and the others lost there lives on May 2, 1971 as well as when Cliff Hosten lost his after Typhoon Hester. Our company lost more lives (6) in 1971 then the rest of the years it was in Nam put together. Tragic and unfortunate. I was fortunate enough to be one of a handful of people who served as Captain cordon's Jeep driver. Spent time at Fire Base Baldy and also was attached to a unit doing roadwork up here the DMZ. If you have pictures or memories please contact me.

I arrived as a replacement in Apr. 1968. While overnight at HHC. That night the sirens went off and the supply sgt came to get us and said don't worry the VC are trying to blow up the JP 4 Tanks, and every thing will be okay. WELCOME TO VIETNAM!
