I was there in '71 (Lam Son 719) from early Feb into Apr, off and on with HHC 1/5 Inf (Mech) - I was in the 86th Chem Det (only 5 men) along with the Brigade Chem Sec (3 men). Though it doesn't say, I'd say this picture is from '68. In '71 we didn't use the continuous trenches as appear here. We had separate michinegun implacements - at least at the position where I was. The old trinches and implacements were still quite evident though. We burned them out as best we could with flamethrowers and diesel and filled them in any time a bulldozer was near by, they were full of booby traps 'n stuff left over. Been trying to figure out exactly where I spent my time here and I have an idea - but I'm not positive. -Submitted by: Bill Hall [email@example.com] 2008-03-20
