Radar Tower at Tra Cu

This is one of only two known pictures of our radar tower while at Tra Cu. We set up this tower during the hours of darkness, finishing sometime around 2:00 AM. We were absolutely exhausted by that time and started making stupid mistakes, one of which could’ve caused the tower to tip over. The other mistake was forgetting to ground the generator which resulted in me receiving a heck of an electrical shock the next morning while I was checking the fuel level in the adjacent 55 gallon barrel.
