  • Need Help with coordinates

    Can anybody school me with how to understand what the coordinates mean i.e. AT896875? Any help will be appreciated.

    You need the grid map of the area that is broken into different blocks.

      I don't know much but I had figured out that he blocks May have been what the AT stood for. Thank you for conforming that. Now I need to understand what the numbers mean. I have found a source for digital maps that can be viewed in Google Earth. If I learn how to use the coordenince mean I may be able to translate them to what we called them (i.e. LZ Baldy). I got the "After Action Reports" and they helped me remember names for the faces I had remembered but had forgotten their names.

      I hope you don't mind a suggestion on your tag line. It brought back memories (or nightmares) of my drill instructor that would say "

          Uncle 00 Just the kinda help I needed. Nothing to misunderstand. Post the link, press send and make me happy. Thank you very much. I did not need maps while in country. I fley Gunner on CH 46's. If I was on the ground something was very wrong. The Pilots filled out the After Action Reports. Matter of fact I did not know they did that, I was to busy and wore ouy humping the 50 to the Armory. All joking aside Thank You very much.
