Though I believe I’m on the recall roster I’d like my MASS 3 Service to reflect Khe Sanh Dasc ‘68, Khe sanh Asrt ‘68 , and Birmingham ASRT OIC ‘71.
If memory serves, which sometimes it does not, Birmingham was the last operational ASRT in Country in ‘71. I think Danang had already shut down and Khe Sanh ASRT had redeployed from Khe Sanh to Danang in preparation for the Squadron’s return to Conus.
I’m interested, at last, in returning to Viet Nam; and while all the tours go to the obvious places I had wanted to try to get back to the Chu Lai area since I had the Civic Action Team in our local ville...Sam Hai? Trung Toan? Don’t even know if they exist now.
Have any of our guys done this? How would I get up with them if so?
Would appreciate any assist.
