Lots familiar there. The CH 47 in the first picture was from my BN...white circle with a red dot painted on the tail. Also, spent a different year with Dau Tieng as my base camp, a true garden spot.

ex combat marine? I am a retired "Marine" who served in combat. I consider myself a "former" or "retired" Marine but Never an ex marine! Once a Marine, always a Marine!

Vets

I want to say Thank You to all the Vets that have served, are serving now, and have freinds and family that are currently deployed. Without their dedication and sacrifices I would not be able to enjoy the freedoms that I have grown to love & enjoy living in the greatest country in world. THANK YOU !

sincerely,
Mike & debbie Mizgala

I questioned your use of "ex" and the lower case "m" in Marine. Appeared to be a lack of knowledge or respect for the Marine Corps.

Fire Support Base (FSB) Pershing was one of the biggest FSBs in the Area of Operations. There were four Infantry companies, a 105mm artillery battery and a weapons platoon (4.2 mortars) that operated from there. It was a few miles north of Trang Bang

Photo number 11's caption is a little misleading. I could be wrong but there were many "abandoned" rubber plantations about 35 miles north of Saigon. The VC "drafted" many of the workers and shortly nobody would show up for work. These rubber plantations fell into disuse long before US troops were in-country.
This particuliar plantation (the fog of war is thick) was in the Filhol, adjacent to the HoBo Woods.

The only large operating rubber plantation was the Michelin Rubber Plantation next to the Dau Tieng Base Camp.
