EXPERIENCE = I remember that Nha Trang was called the R&R Center for the American, vietcong, and NVA. Why would you want to destroy it??!! I arrived during the company party on the beach and left in August 69. My brother Jim joined our unit in June 69. I have some very vivid memories of my time there. I would like to share some photos as soon as I figure the technology end of this computer. I also have tons of slides of my time in Nha Trang. What ever happened to Jacocks, Collins, Bomely, McArthur, Napier, Poston, Ontiveros, and others? A reunion would be great.

COMMENTS = Harry Jacocks, Tom Collins, Robert Napier, Larry Poston, Mc Arthur, Tony Ontiveros (Ventura CA. area), Ken McClintock passed away in the mid 70s. I had visited him in Ohio in winter of 69. He was very close to me and was coming out to the west coast before he found out that he was ill. I'll never forget Wooster, Ohio. Look me up if your in So. California.
