    Now I've heard lots of stories-where soldiers-were given little cups-of narco-substances-in the Army.When they returned home from Vietnam-they were addicted.Wisk'y is good for shock.I guess in battle-I have no right to say anything.I have just seen so many people taken down by Hard-Drugs-so much heart-ache.

    I definitely remember "Dog Patch", it was directly across from the entrance to the Marine Compound in DaNang, Republic of South Vietnam. I was in DaNang from March of 1967 to April of 1968 with HAMS-11.

    dog patch

    A Sgt and I went out on a bike one night for a very cold beer. I was a PFC then. The VC made a sweep, and we hit the walls of the house. They opened up, and hid us in there. We could hear all our hearts beating for sure when the VC found our Bike outside the house, and come in to get us. The MP's were on their tails, and they took off, shortly after the MP's left, we took off back ALIVE to the Danang Air Base. This was bout the 2-3 rd of March '68. Never did we go again. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

    I checked to see if I had any photos of the crashed B-52, but no luck.
    However, I did find 3 of Dog Patch: one with (Lcpl) me and a cute kid and 2 others with kids. I recall the kid I was holding was from Hanoi and I struck up a conversation with her parents (about the only time my 5 years of French came in handy). They were refugees and he had been a doctor or something.
    The pictures are in my Dog Patch album.

    It's changed a bit

    Somebody posted that video a while back, but I watched it again anyway.
    Used to drive trucks over that road, daily but it looks like the road, at least around Freedom Hill, has deteriorated a lot.

    I was at 11th Motors, just across the valley from 1st Mar Div.

    B-52 Crash & July 25th 1967 Bomb Dump Explosion


    I remember both, we watched that B52 land, he really had no chance, but we kept hoping. Trouble was he glided more than 500 yards before wheels down, then there was no room to stop, even with parachoot deployed. No photos of that, however, a friend of mine got some photos of DaNang under fire in July 1967. I have about 6 to 10 photos of that attack. I'll scan in more and upload later.
