On May 3rd James Kiser and I, Bob Simington, will be returning to Vietnam. We plan to visit Danang, Hue, and Dong Ha and we intend to locate and photograph a lot of the positions 1st Guns occupied during its deployment to Vietnam. I also intend to maintain a blog of our trip on this site. Hopefully, the blog will be as well-received as the one I maintained on my last visit in 2011 (here).
Bob, I brought back a couple cuttings from some bushes and trees at the Phu Bai site and one of them is growing. Good luck on your trip.
I was with this battery from Jan. 68 until July 68 I remember when that gun blew up
