There is a Topic on the FORUM under The Building #’s which has an aerial view of the USAF West Side housing area.  Maybe you  will recognize your barracks.  If you do and remember the Building #, reply under the topic so we can update the location and Organization List.

I have included the photo below with a link to the proper FORUM:

My Tour
det6kat

Hello everyone.

My name is Wavelen Fileder and I served at Bien Hoa for 1 1/2 years from 18Jun69 – 17Dec70 with Detachment 6 600th Photo Sq.  We operated out of the trailer complex just North of the ‘6251st Hospital/Dspensary’ and East of the Motor Pool (I think the 3rd Transportation Sq.)  See photo below.

We had two barracks when I arrived In-Country in ’69.  One was BKS #3189 on the NEW (East) side of the base and the other one was located on the OLD (West) side (VNAF) part of the base in an American barracks compound, BKS #240, which was just West of the Old BX – NCO Club area.  When I say old BX , I mean relative to the  East side BX which was built close to the middle of my tour (mid ’70′s).  I was trying to remember what time frame the New BX-Theater-Post Office, were built.  It was at the same time that the New Hq. building for the 3rd TFW-23rd VNAF Wing was built.

Well, enough for now.  This is just to try to get something started.  Any thoughts?
