These pictures were sent to me from David Drum. He has a lot of the pictures I remember well. For those not familiar with thumb nails, just click on the picture and you will get a larger picture.

Here is the bunker between the barracks. On the note David had originally written on the back of the picture it stated "this is a place I hope I never have to be". I know every one can remember this site. I do. I remember the night I made a mad dash for it in bare feet, and kicked the guide wire to the pole beside the bunker and almost broke my toe. That was the last time I went to the bunker.

Tiger Lake - There were the good times and the bad. I remember having many a great time here. Food and a cool one, maybe even a few cool ones, and many other strange occurrences happening in the surrounding brush. For many a young GI what occurred here will always be remembered.

South Beach - At the time we were not in to beauty, but here was some of the finest beaches in the World. The South China Sea was clear and deep blue, and the beaches along with all of Cam Ranh were made up of white sand. This could make your thoughts of war go away, if it weren't for the bunkers and barbed wire in places.

This is the Crazy Cat orderly room.
