where are the hills in Vietnam?
I'm looking for some info. on Hills in Vietnam. ( hill #'s)I never lived on one, but we did get C's and ammo from them. I see some of the Vietnam bro's talking about them and I would like to have a reference to show my son where I was. Also wondering if any of you guys were associated with my units.
My first unit was A/1/3 3rd FMF. we went over on the troop transport Mc Goffin in July 65 with the 7th Fleet and relieved the 9th Marines holes. The hill we got our C's from was about 2 miles from our perimeter. Another hill was in Chu Lai. and then at Quang Nam Provence, Hue, Phu Bi area with the 7th Marines, B/1/7. I would appreciate your help brothers. If ya want ya can e-mail me a JoeT@USMC0311.com
Semper Fi, Proud to be part of the Vietnam Brotherhood and Proud of all you guys for what you have tolerated through out the years.

Hill Numbers in Vietnam
Most of the hills had numbers in meters.
The ones that had been buildup and occupied.
Either had a name or were known by the number in meters.
Such as Freedom Hill or Hill 327.
In 1967 the 7th Marines Regimental headquarters with attach units was located on Hill 55.
I was stationed East of Hill 55.
Just off Anderson trail, our mission was to safe-guard an Arty battary and a bridge that was close by.
Up north there were several Hill that were occupied by various units.
Numbers and names, I'm having a hard time remembering.
Maybe someone can help us here.

0311, the Hills were on High Ground! LMAO
All right, haven't found a place that names all the hills, but here's a couple of sites that will help.
Here's Da Nang, with Hill 327 aka Freedom Hill
Check out where we were and maps...
This one has all the Hills listed that 7th Marines operated near...

I was just below Hill 327 with A-1-12. Since my secondary MOS was 3531 I also visited Monkey Mountain and Marble Mountain. We drove supplies from the Mts to the Atry and grunts.
I believe that there was an old French Fort just to the right of Hill 327.

Chu Lai , one of the positions was hill # 69 . The only other I remember or spent much time on was Con Thien or I believe the map said hill # 158.
