We had a few ROKMC passing thru Hoa An from time to time but while My squad lived in Hoa An for over 2 1/2 years (I spent most of my 20 months in country there) there was not any detachment of the Blue Dragon Brigade there (ROKMC) in our Hamlet. ROKMC HQ was just outside of Hoi An about half way between Danang and Chu Lai. You may have passed thru or been part of a operation in Hoa An area. Don't know what happened after I left. All I know was when my squad left it was to be the last embedded full time marines in this one hamlet, not saying there were not operations conducted in Our AO after we left or I left. I always wondered what happened after Dec1st 1970.
one note I do remember there was one ROKMC officer seems like he was a Major was seen several times visiting his girl friend there. Semper Fi!

I recall making a number of runs to a CAP Unit at Hoi An (I was with 11th Motors 1970-1971), was that you?

I would say yes. I can remember when Typhoon Kate came thru and destroyed alot of the only one lane road (I mean it was a squeeze for a duece and half ) that joined the other hamlets thru our area and there were several dump type trucks that brought load after load of sand/dirt from somewhere over toward Namo Bridge area to fill in the washed out road. This was around sept/oct 1970. Semper Fi.

Sorry about that! I didn't read the Village right...... you said Hoi An...... my mind registered Hoa An. That was not me or the others in my unit. Even though we were there in Hoi An several times best fish and shrimp makets in all of I Corps.

I do remember that typhoon, although you're ahead of me because I couldn't recall it's name. One of our drivers came close to losing he head, in compound, to a piece of flying roofing tin. He threw up his arms and had both forearms cut to the bone. Kind of ugly but beats having his neck cut to the bone.

The split off was south of Danang where the road forked the right fork I don't know where it went,the left fork continue to Hoa Phouc Village/District we always turn left off on HWY 1 then crossed the bridge to next four corners where we went right on to 607 to Hoi An.
Seems like a long trip just to go 30 miles

I was there in '64-'65, at that time the patch was on limits, had a blast there when I was in town, Some of the best treats, and drinks out of a bottle that we popped the cap off. Seen the QC's grab a national and pick him up threw him in the back of their jeep, and whaled the tar out of him. Not a pretty site, they used their batons on the guy, but then he must have deserved it.

If you traveled toward Hill 327 from 4 corners you would go about 150 yards take the first turn right (trail/entrance) thru the ville it ziz-zag north about two miles all the way to highway 1. We were about 1 mile north of Phouc Toung in the village of Hoa An. Once you made the right turn there was 1 Squad of Marine in Phouc Toung(Dogpatch). We were the other squad about 1 mile north of them between 4 corners and FLC. Dod patch was off limits then except for the two Squads of Marines living within this AO.
