Enjoyed your page. We have a couple of things in common. I flew Air Force rescue choppers in VN, 67-68. I also own a 57 Tripacer which I really enjoy. (N7035D)

Hello, Your page brings back some memories. I was with the 3\4 Cav and spent several months at a firebase in Go do hau (sp?) during the rainy season in 69. It was about a mile on the Cu Chi side of Go do hau (gdh), and had a cemetery next to it. Don’t think it was the one you were at however, as there were no hooches. Sometimes there would be some artillery there–I recall some 155’s with “The Dodge Boys” painted on the barrel. Used to pull guard duty at the bridge in gdh and visit with some navy that stayed on some barges near the bridge. Also, if my recollection is correct, was at fsb Crook briefly on a couple of occasions. Didn’t find the weather there unusual, as I’m from southeast Texas. Enjoyed your site. dr
