    Dogpatch

    I was with Mike Dybus on Hill 327 back in 66. Went through Dogpatch more times than I can remember, especcially going down for chow 3 times a day til our mess hall was built. That was it though, never ventured there for anything else!

    I was there 8 Mos. in 66 & 9 Mos. in 67. Does anyone remember two girls & a boy that worked in their family hut by the name of Lee, Home, or Baa. (Probably spelled wrong) Their Dad was counterintelligence for the Vietnamese. Good people. I went to their school & paid for it till they graduated. At that time there was only huts on one side of the road. Like the pics. Brings back a lot of memories.

    EVERYTIME I pass by this thread, I have picture memories jump out at me. WHY?? I only spent a few days in a Ville, and nothing happened, but guess I was on edge while there. Feel bad, for the "GOOD" Vietnamese...they deserved better.....DOC

    Same, same. Dybus and me were buddies at ASP-1. I recall copping some goof-off time once or twice, and even managed to have a few beers and Get laid (once) in Dogpatch, before it went off limits around May or June of 66.
    I remember being in country only a couple of weeks before I decided I was real glad not to be humping a ruck, but had a lot of respect for the guy's who did.

    Does anyone remember Gary Thacker. He was in supply on 327 in 67. I traded him a go cart that I made in MCB 1 shop.

    One of my Biggest surprises was the lack of that smell! Every once in a while you get a whiff that is perhaps 10% of what it used to be but only a whiff and then it's gone.

    I honestly believe Doc that the people are doing better under this regime.
    Each and every person I saw in my two weeks around Da Nang and Hue seemed to me Happy and enterprising. Not in the least suppressed.

    I noticed your older post. I was in VMCJ-1 from July ' 67 - just in time for the bomb dump to go off. I was in Hydraulics.

    I was in VMFA-122 from July 67 (advance party) we were between H&MS-11 and VMCJ-1. I also was a bubblechaser and missed being in the Sept 66 cadre from VMCJ-3 by a few days. When were you in A school in Memphis? You must have been in the class ahead of me as I left for El Toro Easter Sunday 66. What is your name as I might know you as we exchanged a lot of parts.

    I think I was maybe behind you. I went in Oct 1965. I was in the Hydraulics shop in VMCJ-3 to start after AIT and Memphis etc. - some time Spring 66.

    Remember there were two guys - 1 an E-5 and the other maybe an E-4 who were extended and were in there fifth year?
    Bitter - bitter - BITTER people. But I learned a lot from them.

    I do remember the VMCJ-3 major rotation of equipment and pilots to Nam. I went down to Diego to help load the equipment on the LST. If you did - you will surely remember that the ship had not been in service since Korea! I could not remember when it was. I just remembered I was not in squadron long enough to be sent.

    I rotated to Nam in July ' 67 just in time for the bomb dump surprise. I spent my year there and then reupped for the 2nd tour and went to H&MS11.

    How did you get from VMCJ-3 to VMFA-122?
    Us photo recon and electronics guys don't normally like to get our hands smudged with bombs and stuff.................. LOL
    My name is Rich Green
    I was from Indiana then.
