    must have been way before your time, I was there when you sat at a table and looked out for shiney things in your drink that wasn't suppose to be there, same thing in Da Nang also, They liked to grined glass and mix it in with the ice. Then serve it to you.

    Never made it to Dogpatch. Always seem to have just been passing through Danang . Old transit hootches by the airfield or construction barracks with the fancy bunks .

The baby sanhs were so friendly down that way and the MP's and QC's were there in abundance and not at all friendly. Anyone out there have any pleasant or otherwise memories to share about this quant hamlet? How about four corners? Lets hear about it answer up.
