A favorite photo of a Chinook and the landscape.
DHC-4 Caribou. A workhorse delivering everything under the sun all over Vietnam. Probably most every GI in-country rode one in of these at one time or another.
Typical set up of living conditions and spaces we gathered to play cards, socializing, and awaiting mission calls.
We were fat with building materials. Worked well for barter to get anything we could not easily get our hands on. Also provided all the building materials we needed to build hooches to live in.
Pulled every nail, saved every hinge and screw and every piece of each of the the hundreds of boxes the rockets came in. No sooner helped get this hooch built and our platoon was sent south to Phanthiet.
One landing Chinook would soak every living nook and cranny around it in dust and sand. We quickly learned to cover our bunks and other important things with tarps every morning.
A2 milk from the dairy farm comes with much cream on the top of the gallon container. Have shared pics here awhile ago.
