Marine Air Tactical Control Unit 62s Tower for Airfield Operations at Khe SAnh in 1968.
KHE SANH TOWER MATCU62 1968
The MATCU-62 in this photo stands for Marine Air Traffic Control Unit; not Tactical. I know because I was a member of MATCU-62 during Tet-68. We ran the airfields at Khe Sanh and Dong Ha; and later at LZ Stud. / Pdkeefe5925@aol.com

Sir exelant pic, it is actualy an AN/TRC-131, 2 UHF ARC-51, 2 VHF ARC-101, 1 HF ARC-94, and 1 VRC-46. No I wasn\'t there I was in MATCU-62 in 74,75 in IWAKUNI Patching up holes in the gear. I was a 5956 RADAR repairman. The tower was the TSA-28. Thank you for all you did back then. I am a MGYSGT now and will be retiring in August. Semper Fi

Thanks to PdKeefe5925@aol.com for setting things straight and ensuring that future generations know the correct meaning of MATCU. As stated, MATCU stands for "Marine Air Traffic Control Unit." A former OIC, MATCU-66 and MATCU-61. Semper Fi!
