Never made it to Dogpatch. Always seem to have just been passing through Danang . Old transit hootches by the airfield or construction barracks with the fancy bunks .

Marines Squad In Dog Patch
The Vietnamization of war order by President Nixon 1969 July included 3rd Marine Division at Dong Ha to deploy back to OKI./ or Camp Pendelton and the redirection of Marine forces in other parts of I Corp area in Vietnam.
The area nicknamed Dog Patch was part of Hoa Phat Village District which encluded Phouc Toung, Hoa An, Ninh Hoa and I believe Hoa Kanh was also part there of.
I was part of the Marine Squad assigned to Hoa An 69/70 we lived in the hamlet of Hoa An , Phouc Toung had another Marine Squad Embedded there as well.
There is little known of our activity there. The area was indeed off limits to Military Personnel except for the two squads that were there. The last Marine there was me November 30 1970. We were told to stand down about three weeks earlier, we had only daylight visits to handle last minute Concerns of the Village/Hamlet Chiefs and the next day December 1st 1970 at 0100 hrs. I departed Vietnam. Many villager freind til this day have been missed.
