Looking for anyone w/Echo Btry 2/11 69-70
Tryng to locate anyone I served with in An Hoa, Echo Battery 2/11 Marines 1969-70. It has been so long, all I can remember (that's what PTSD does to you) are first names like Ken, Woody, etc. If you did serve, contact me at email@example.com

I also was on gun #5. I can see a BIG difference from '67 to '69. That helo pat was just across the mine field from Echo company.
Semper Fi, my friend.

Good pics...although I was only close to An Hoa.
My understanding now is that An Hoa is under water due to a dam that was built. (open to be corrected on this?)
Also, I was at Nong Son Mtn, just west of An Hoa on the Song Thu Bon, and they now offer Jet Ski adventures for the touristos.
For me, and likely for many others, it's very difficult to fathom a relaxed, vacation atmosphere at An Hoa/Nong Son area.
After all, it's on been 44 years since my last picnic there.
OP....good luck on your search for your Brothers.
A good day to all....

I know where Hoi An is...between Chu Lai and Tam Ky on Highway 1....unless my memory fails me there also.
I hear now Highway #1 has been paved with asphalt for some time.
I would like to see all that turf now.

Hmmm....I might be thinking of An Tan and not Hoi An.....my error.
Better go back to my maps again.....

Hoi An is north of Tam Ky....in fact, it is north of Chu Lai. Hoi An is probably 25-30 south of Da Nang. Yeah, I heard Highway One is a nice road now. Also, Highway 14 that runs off of Highway One is a pretty good road from what I have heard. It actually goes through Charlie Ridge (Ho Chi Minh Trail). There is another new road that feeds off Hwy 14 that goes toward An Hoa. The old Liberty Bridge and road were abandoned as the new road now runs along side the Song Thu Bon river. There is also a new railroad going through An Hoa.
I'm glad to see the area move into the 21st century. When I was there, I felt like I had gone back into time and hated it due to the war. As for visitation, I would go in a heartbeat.
I got the "History of the USMC at An Hoa" video and it has helped bring some closure. BTW, there will be a final addition soon. Part 3 will cover 1970-71 with the battles, CAP units, Corpsmen, artillery, humor, pictures & video.
Time to stand down,
