I arrived Dong Ha in late September 1967. I was assigned to the only army unit there. (1st Batallion, 40th Artillery). I was assigned to Headquarters Battery. Our units shot 155 Howitzers, overshadowed by the 175s the Marine shot. There was a massive secondary explosion sometime after I arrived near airport. I had slides of it, but they disappeared over the years. This was a massive secondary explosion and happened well after 9/3/67. Possibly after TET IN 1968. Just wondering if anyone has photos of the 1/40th compound???Or if there is anyone associated with this site that remembers the 1/40th. We had a battery at the Rockpile and elsewhere. I worked in S2/s3, operations and intelligence and spent most of my 12 months underground in a bunker constructed of metal containers. During my tenure we were under constant barrage of artillery fire. I may be reached at email@example.com. My name is John Fesler.
