Looking for all Marines who served in the An Hoa Combat Base OA during the
years of 1970-71. This includes, but not limited to: The Arizona, The Phu Lacs, Liberty Bridge, Duc Duc, Antenna Valley, The Indian Country, Go Noi Island, Dodge City, Henderson Hill, Mau Chanh and the Que Son Mountains of South Vietnam. The An Hoa Basin also includes Charlie Ridge and surrounding areas.

Alan Waugh is working on the final chapter of his famous "History of the USMC at An Hoa" and needs your stories to complete this excellent DVD.

Wow...small world.
I have had some good email dialogue with Alan beginning about 2 years ago.
To qualify, I was at Nong Song (Hill 300) outpost much of the time from Jan '67 - March '67 which was just a couple miles southwest of An Hoa on the Song Thu Bon.

Anyway, hope some of you are able to help him out with more facts/photos.

Carry on....

I'm sure many of you were in the early part of "The History of the USMC at An Hoa" DVD. This is the last and final chapters for the years 1970 & 71. Basically, it will cover the CAP units, artillery, corpsmen, grunts and the draw down and closing of An Hoa Combat Base. Whatever your MOS, if you served in 1970 and 71, please contact Alan Waugh at alan@graphicbikeart.com with you stories, pictures, and info. This will be the final chapter, so do not get left out!

I didn't know the 5th moved to LZ Baldy, when did they do that? I thought that was the 7th Marines AO.<script type="text/javascript" src="safari-extension://com.ebay.safari.myebaymanager-QYHMMGCMJR/f91dd2b/background/helpers/prefilterHelper.js"></script>

5th Marines moved to Baldy in about Late Sept or early Oct of 70 when 7th rotated back to the states. I was there until I rotated in Dec of 70
