A little after Tet in 68 I moved out into the Que Son Valley, and did ops with 1st Cav and 101st down south. Once I got mud on my boots in the Que Son I never went back to Highway One again. Did ops out in the Lao border for awhile (lots of unknown hill number and nameless LZ's). Then finally settled in at the southern base of the Hiep Duc Ridge Line. Did ops out of there, but that was home for the next eight months. Was a tough place, but it was home.
Were you in Chu Lai when the blew the place up during Tet in 68? We used to hit the "MAG PX's in Chu Lai whenever we got back in town. Remember walking thru the bone yards looking at all those shot up planes with aircraft carriers names on them often wondering where they had the ships parked out there.
