I flew into Khe Sanh in Dec '66 when it looked exactly like ths!! My left seat passenger was LtGen Krulak, CG FMFPAC. He was making one of his 50 or 60 visits to his Marines in Viet Nam. I was so very proud to fly him out here from Dong Ha with his 3 star placard on both sides of the Huey. OOO-RAHHH! I was escorted by a huge entourage of helicopters for cover and SAR/medevac in case I went down with the general on board. If I remember correctly, I had 4 VMO-2 gunships and 2 H-34s tailing me very closely. Semper Fi, Ron P.S. I had SOG missions out of this hell hole in Feb '67. Still have my Seiko with the red mud in the watch band. -Submitted by: Ron Osborne [firstname.lastname@example.org] 2006-09-03
