This wee Easter bunny is a gift for you, Gentle Readers, with my permission to download it and print it out if you're so inclined. I'll be out of the studio and offline over the long holiday weekend, and back on Tuesday.
I was at Long Binh from September 1967 util November 1968. Worked at HQ USARV. Went back a couple of years ago. Hired a driver and after a few wrong turns we were able to get close to the old HQ building. It is now a Vietnamese military base. We were stopped at a guardhouse within sight of the old HQ building, but were not allowed in. The lone guard was about to let us in, but an officer came along and turned us away.Everything else on the old base is now an industrial park.
I served at the long binh base as MP, from Feb of 72 to Dec of 72. Agent Orange was still being used every day. It had a very oily smell and killed all the bugs and grass.Long Binh was winding down and all the personal was moved to the stockade. Hey guys you have to talk about this with anybody who will listen to you
I was 9th div. at bearcat not far from long binh. I stole some lumber to put a floor in my platoon tent, took about 4 loads in a 3/4 ton in early 67. visited some Buddys that were working ground surveillance radar in the watch towers at the ammo dump a couple of times and called home once at the mars station

Second the Detachment company clerk found out I could type. So I took his job for two to three Months. Worked TOC in the Middle of Planation in G2 Air. Work in the II Shop for a President Project. Finally the last part of my tour was spent at Bien Hoa Air Base with a couple of other Image Interpreters Vietmazation Project. We traveled daily from Plantation to Bien Hoa Air Base. The Bunker that we manned was between Long Bien and Plantation along HWY 1. I do remember the 24 Medivac Hospital where I spent my 21 Birthday. Their were so busy. I got a elastic band for a crushed nerve in my leg. I felt lucky to get it, because upon my arrival Medivac Choppers were bring wounded in and it was surprising they even got to me after 4 or 5 hours.

Then I was to sent to a line unit in April 1967 ,A/2/12 Infantry 4th Infantry Div . as a rifleman in War Zone C a mostly triple canopied jungle area ,where we constantly operated vs the VC and NVA ,which was a difficult and bad experience!

I was with USARV Headquarters and was the personal clerk for Kenneth Holmes who was the Chief of the personnel division. In 1967 we moved there from Saigon. I was also his driver and remember having to pick him up and take him back to his quarters every day before returning to one of the enlisted quarters. The officers lived in nice trailers while the enlisted personnel lived in wooden barracks with outdoor latreans and outdoor showers. I remember we worked long days seven days usually six days a week.
long binh 65-66. first couple of months drove truck from saigon to long binh with items to help new unit to settle in. then helped wire compound. we set poles and run power lines to tents. 303rd rr bn. 2nd tour 67-68 cantho.
I was in long bin Dec 69 Jan 71 I was with 3 ord 54 th ord co ammo I worked in the 54 th ord moter pool also drove a water truck took water to showers and mess halls I would like to hear from anyone who served with me
My assignment and time served was mostly uneventful. Long work days, we worked 6-1/2 days a week when I got there, later only 6 days. The duty hours and day were long but not difficult. Of course any personal business was done during duty hours. Lunch time was an hour and a half, including transportation time to and from. The usual personnel drama was always going on.
I served in long binh with the 321tc and the 261tc driving the wecker on convoyes fro Dec 67 to Dec 68. Saw a lot of the southern end of Nam from the delta to the central highlands. There was not even running water at that time and normally was not any water left to bath in when we returned from convoy as the people that did not leave post would use it all and leave the valves on the showers when they got out. They cared nothing about those who got up at 3am drove all day returning after dark 7 days a week. Then they call themselves veterans.
I was with area company 44th signal Bn from July 1968 until Sept 1969. I worked in the tactical com center located by the main gate. All the vans that were hooked together. I remember we went by silver city known better as the long Binh stockaid. Everything was painted silver city. Our company area was located down the hill from USARV.
Wow just stumbled on this post. I was assigned to the 40th signal Battalion out of long binh apr 68-69. I think it was company b. I was a pole lineman. I did some cable work there but also some carpentry. I was also at Cam Tho, Cu Chi, Binh Long and Cam Rahn. Missed first tet but they tried again in 69. Watched Puff fly over the perimeter all night. A few unfortunate got through but the next morning they were hunted down from pickups. I was supposed to go to ft hood but Don Porter and I heard a rumor that you could get your orders changed at the Pentagon. To make a long story short we spent the next 18 months stationed in Bangkok living in a air conditioned hotel
Was it ecocide? The collapse of the mini-civilization on Easter Island (Rapa Nui) has long been considered one of the great Green morality tales. Once the people there cut down the last tree, story goes, they were doomed. Their famous statues were an arms race that completed the exhaustion of their all-too-finite resources. Moral of the story: Easter Island equals Earth Island: we must not repeat its tragedy with the planet.
In the most isolated place on Earth a tiny society built world-class monuments. Easter Island (Rapa Nui) is 1,000 miles from the nearest Pacific island, 3,000 miles from the nearest continent. It is just six by ten miles in size, with no running streams, terrible soil, occasional droughts, and a relatively barren ocean. Yet there are 900 of the famous statues (moai), weighing up to 75 tons and 40 feet high. Four hundred of them were moved many miles from where they were quarried to massive platforms along the shores.
I finished dressing and locked up the back part of the house. When I gotto the living room he had fallen asleep in a chair, his head on oneside, his face drained of color, his whole body slack with exhaustion.He looked pitiful. When I touched his shoulder he came awake slowly asif it was a long way from where he was to where I was. 041b061a72
