Cu Chi Airfield
This is a Caribou aircraft. We could get the whole band with all of our instruments into one of these planes. One of our modes of transportation. November, 1969.
Aircraft parked at Cu Chi Airfield.

M-60 machine gun at bunker #5
Band hall, ammo bunker and club
Band hootch on left. ASP hootch. And what we referred to as the Yum-Yum tree
Tower. We had to supply three people for guard duty every night. Two in the bunker and one on the tower. Tower was my favorite. I would climb to the very top and sit there for hours with my M16 and a starlight scope
Terry Henson, Tim Dallas and Bob Hackett
Bunker #5. RPG screen in front. Shooting positions inside, on top and on either side of the bunker. Claymore mine with det cord leading to it from inside the bunker
Getting ready to man the bunker. Every night, setting up claymore mines and checking the fences
