D Company 67

   I got to the 84th early march 67 I had been there about a week when they sent D Company to the Qui Nhon Airport to help secure it and keep it open. We were there about a week I think. A while later we moved South of Qui Nhon to a village on RT1.There was a ROK outpost about ½ way up the mountain on the right. We used the same entrance and went left and up above them, and leveled off a compound with a chopper pad. We built it in 3 days and 3 nights, nonstop until it was done. We operated from this place for the rest of 67. Some of the things we did was blowup 7 bridges and put in culverts by biger bridges, we built several metal bldg on concrete pads 50 x 100 feet poured with wheel borrows. We also widened RT 1 over the mountain to Qui Nhon. After we made it 2 lane we helped asphalt it and I ran the paint sprayer in a trailer pulled with a jeep to paint the double yellow line across the mountain.At some point after Christmas 67 200 of us with combat engineer training were taken out of the 84th and made B Co 589th combat engr and sent to LZ uplift north of Qui Nhon RT1 I was an E5 when I left the 84th.
