JOURNEY TO VIETNAM
Unloading in Vung Tau,Vietnam 8/15/66
Tay Ninh, 96 Kilometers N/W of Saigon, was known
as "Rocket City" due to the rain of 122mm rockets
directed at the Base Camp.
From the shores of Vung Tau, we were loaded on trucks, to C-130's which transported us to Tay Ninh.
This is our first day in Tay Ninh, our home for the next 9 months.
The only man made thing on base camp was the airstrip.
seasickness was all around
