Roads must be wider and less congested than they used to be. Can't feature guiding a Roadmaster down the streets of Saigon.

Hank if you are a Vietnam vet let the people know. I would like to know if my village is still there. You probably won’t get even close to it

Have thought about going myself, but that country has a lot of unpleasant memories for me. I have heard that there is a measure of healing when going there.

A number of CAP Marines have gone back and found their villages and areas they patrolled in.

Hi Capmarine. Briefly , we served in different Coalition deployments Iraq or Afghanistan, other ops. The other 3 guys were same team, technical combatants . Trip is sort of a retirement party for last one of them serving in the Guard etc.

When you go to Hue go by the Dong Ba Tower, we're the one's (D/1/5) that took it back from the gooks. Hue wasn't very pretty when I left. I'm also 100% P&T.

Yep, some of our brothers are still around. One of my good friends was a Cap Marine, saw him last night at a CVMA get together. His name is Pader, rides a Harley trike.
