    From the Pacific Northwest

    I've have been monitoring this forum for a while, and finally decided to dive in. Military (US Army) veteran, served in Nam 68-69. Family is long on military tradition, with Father served in Whermacht as a young Ensign in WWI, then in the Polish Legions as a Cavalry officer, and subsequently as a part of Gen. Anders 2nd Corps Staff. Mother was military and also served with Gen. Anders in the Middle East. I carry a Kahr PM9 as CC, and have my old vintage 1911 tucked away. Looking to "listen" and learn from this erudite group.

    I ran a gun truck (convoy escort) up to Pleiku on many occasions! Our unit had the fuel farms in Qui Nhon and operated the petroleum pipeline up the pass. Had the pleasure of staying at your base up there, y'all lived pretty good. I was TDY for security and support to the POL unit.

    Our fuel dump got hit during the time I was there, also Camp Holloway (ARMY) base which was about 3 miles from us got hit the month before us. We watched them burn, then the next month they watched us. Glad you made it home ok.

    I was there when the fuel dump got hit. Charlie kinda romped through the camp and had a field day blowing stuff up. As I recall the Americal Division was there at Camp Holloway at the time, shortly after they re-deployed south. Seems like a different lifetime...


    Thanks to all for the warm welcome. Believe me it is very appreciated.
