    Spent first day in-country in Saigon talking my way out of assignment to a twin 40 Bofors unit. From the frying pan into the fire, was a long way to Ban Me Thuot. Looks like I remember. Thanks for the memories.

    Nice slide show; unfortunately, I never made my way that far south.

    We were flying into Saigon, but between the weather and incoming fire at the airfield we got diverted to Cam Ranh Bay. Often wonder what would my in country assignment have been if I had gone in at the ReplDet instead of the one in Cam Ranh. So I Corp/ was my AO and a long way from Saigon
