       . Land side perimeter in 1967. 40mm armored vehicle and bunker. We had 5-6 of these weapons along with bunkers and 50cal. on the towers. Barbed wire was only yards from troops and tents. We had underground, covered hooches to sleep in with mortar protection pits inside

  Fuel stored in offshore barge. Most tricky ‘cause small boats supporting VC worked offshore at night. They were so many of them that their night running lights looked like a continuation of Phan Thiet for miles out to sea.
