Some one has occupied the ARVN compound. In 2005 it was
not in use.
The next 3 pictures show the old entrance arch and a warning sign. Up until recently some returning vets were met
here by and armed gaurd. But it is no longer a restricted area.

Looking toward Phan Thiet from the Arch. The MP gate and check point

As late as 2004 they had armed guards here to prevent anyone from going on
post. Some of the people who have been back to the LZ in the earlier years were stopped by armed guards and told they
could not go on to the base.
