    wow. I was at Phu Bai in april 1965 with India 3-12 and the base and the airport was just a speck. 1 small tower and our 6 105 Howitzers and a few tents.!!!! -Submitted by: Tom Salter [tpsalter@comcast.net] 2007-10-13

    This picture brought back a flood of memories. I was a sp/5 Ground Controlled Radar Repair Specialist at this airport from around April 1971 (right after the Easter Sunday invasion by the NVA through the DMZ) t1ll October 1971. The sand road at the lower right of the photo led to our revetment that myself and 15 other guys lived and operated the RADAR. This area was between the flight line (in the picture) and the main runway (not shown). To get to the PX and Mess Hall at the Main Phu Bai Base on the other side of Highway 1 you had to drive between the tower and the big building to the right of it in the Photo which was being used by the Vietnamese to build coffins and prepare the dead ARVN soldiers for their final trip home. I will never forget the sickening stench of dead bodies and embalming fluid every time we passed by there. -Submitted by: Brian Robert Harding [hardingbr@hotmail.com] 2006-10-25
