STATEMENT of PURPOSE:

The purpose of this Website is to be an INCLUSIVE (for Vietnam Vets) site.  It is to represent ALL who served at Bien Hoa AB RVN during the Vietnam War.  This includes ALL branches of service.  This is an EXCLUSIVE site, in that it is Closed to non-Vietnam Vets as far as, Registering, Posting and Downloading.

This is a place to tell your story,  find and renew old friendships,  preserve History,  a place of Remembrance for us  and a place to Remember and Honor our fallen brothers.

The adage that came out of the war;  ”ALL  GAVE  SOME  –  SOME  GAVE  ALL”  is a very poignant statement that ‘was’ and ‘is’  still applicable today.

In other words:  PURPOSE:lest we forget

Joe,

Thanks for posting the Bulletin.  Great reading with a lot of info and insite!

I am trying to figure out the photo problem when uploading the Bulletin.  Have you tried to convert one to a ‘.pdf’ format and upload it?  I can see problems even if that works for the photo problem,  because of page/paragraph formatting.  This is something that I will have to check into.

West Side USAF Housing

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?
