    Phu Bai-1967

    My memory is certainly rusty, but I believe the Order of Battle has a number of errors. About March (maybe April) 1967, HMM-265 relocated from MMAF to Phu Bai in it's entirety, except for a couple of detachments at Dong Ha and Khe Sanh. There were a couple of Deuces (CH-37) assigned to Phu Bai, but I do not recall any other complete squadrons.

    Prior to HMM-265 relocating to Phu Bai, we, and other squadrons, had aircraft temporarily assigned to Phu Bai for a few days at a shot for SAR, Sparrowhawk, and various other missions.

    Cool Phu Bai 1967

    HMM-165 moved to Phu Bai from KY Ha in late 1967. We were in tents near the flight line until the Sea Bees finished with the wooden barracks structures. Hope this has been helpful.

    Thumbs up Charlie Battery 1/12 3rd. Marine Reg. Forward Field Artillery

    Howdy Chopper pilots and doorgunners ! I served in Viet-Nam from 1966-67 in Quan Tri Pro, Phu Bi , Dong Ha, Hue, Rock Pile, Artillery Plateau also called( Camp J.J.Carroll), Monkey Mountain, Mutter's Ridge,Chu Lai, Calu,+++. Finally ended my combat career at Gio linh on the DMZ part of the ill fated Mc Namara line of defense . I served in Forward Field Arty. and met Charlie head on. I have all dates recorded in my actual combat records and events involved when I was choppered in or out for various health reasons.
    At this time I'll await a response to this letter to see if there's any interested parties. I will say thanks for getting me out of many jambs safely! I will always owe my life to you wonderful bravest of the brave Warrior Eagles as countless other Marines do to this day who fought on the ground.To the bravest of the brave Warrior Eagles I tip my rusty helmet( which I don't have anymore). I hope and pray that your God will be kind and reward you for your many countless sacrifices that saved so many lives of your fellow Marines locked in deadly combat.
    May you soar with the wind , the sun shine on your back and the clouds pave the way to God.
    Semper Fi !
