Did you know....

There are two (known) sets of testicles in III CTZ.

The first map section (6331-2) below is of the testicles in the 1st ID TAOR.



And the second map section (6329-4) is of the testicles in the 9th ID TAOR.



Looks like the 1st ID had the biggest testicles. LOL

Keeping track of all the testicles in III CTZ could drive someone nuts.

Nha Trang

I'm currently reading the biography of a 5th MSFC officer who was based in Nha Trang from 1967 to 1969. He describes the location of all of the Special Forces' compounds located there in relation to the airbase south of the city. He also fought in the city during Tet 1968 and provides the locales for those battles as well.

Does anyone have a map of Nha Trang circa 1968-70 that I could use to complement the narrative? If not for the city, a provincial map would also be helpful.

Thanks and cheers,
Dan.

Dan,

Here's some map sections of the Nha Trang area.

The first one is the southern edge of Nha Trang, and the second one is of the northern edge. The maps I have access to are split in this manner. You may not be able to read the small print on these maps, so if you want a specific area let me know the coordinates and I'll zoom in on it and post it.

ROFLOL! Sure it is. Looks more like a VC "plotting" map to me.

The Camp in the picture is A-326 Tra Cu. It's AO went all the way to the Cambodian border. We were the first element to cross the Fence in May, 1970. My Cambode Mercenaries from the 3rd Mobile Strike Force led the way. I was the CO of A-326.

Well then, you can expect a visit from Colonel Shaun Darragh, another of our Green Beenies. He was with the Mike Force, among other things. Perhaps you know him?

I have read the Mobile Guerrilla Force books by James Donahue, which sounds like something similar to what you were involved in.

In any case, welcome to our little corner of the internet. I look forward to reading some of your contributions here. More importantly though:

Thank you for your service in the cause of Freedom for the Vietnamese people

Thanks
