I was on Nui Ba Den for 2 1/2 years with the 5th special forces. I also went to Cu chi on occassion. The ‘Black Virgin’ Mountain [Nui Ba Den] as we called her definitely had communications set-up for many field units. I believe the Big Red1 as well as the 25th Inf were up there for most of the time. The unit was designated as Nui Ba Den Provisional Co. and was resupplied out of Tay Ninh base camp. Do you know if anyone is interested in making a return trip to RVN? I am looking to retire in early 2000 and plan on going to the Olympics in Australia and might try to get to Vietnam if possible. Your home page brought back memories, some funny and others not so funny.
Great job! E Co. 1/7 Cav 6/68 – 6/69

Our military careers seem to parallel in time. I served with 8th BN 4th FA based at Dong Ha, RVN. 8″ & 175MM guns (SP) 3 March 69 thru April 70. Even though I joined as regular Army under duress I still got an “early out” after serving 20 months. Nice site. Best regards.
Nice set up. It’s great to have some real pictures other than gore. And, a good commentary. Good therapy as well I assume.
Just wanted to say thanks and keep up the good work. We must never forget. Was at CU CHI Dec. 68/69. Co. B 1/5 mech.”BOBCATS”

Had a friend in 25th, died May 70 in Cambodia; just browsing the Net looking for pertinent info.
