As I stated before, I was not a combat Marine so I have no frame of reference and besides we landed in country on 31Aug65 and I caught my freedom bird on 22Aug66 so pretty early on. We were in Indian country but there were no Indians. Spent the first two months at Da Nang on the Northwest side of the air strip by the old French fort across the road from Check Point Charlie. 5Nov65 some of us were transferred to Bravo Battery 1st LAAM Bn on Monkey Mountain. Stayed up there until I rotated. We had it good up there.
