Not much else going on this Sunday...came down with a slight cold(I seldom get them) so taking it easy with games coming up the next two nights.....received some photos in an e-mail from an old Nha Trang Sky Cop and buddy of mine, Tony Niemotka. Tony was stationed at Nha Trang in 1969 and had arrived before I got there...he is one of about a half dozen Air Force Security Police that were with me at Nha Trang that I have contact with today....Bruce Thompson, Phil Lange(Our NCOIC), Harry Bevan, and Marcus Payen, are others.
Tony sent me more than a half dozen photos and this being a quite Sunday I thought I'd share a few and give details. Left to Right- Base Police, this housed our dispatchers and Small processing port for the folks we arrested and held for processing.....then our living quarters the Security Police Barracks....we actually had pretty sweet sleeping digs for being in a war zone. Below left is the Open Air Base Theater, movies were shown nightly here, and most of them new, as they were being shown stateside at the same time....an attack sent a rocket through the roof on October 12, 1969. And finally our barracks looking across the street towards our "fighting equipment" and base police.
Hard to believe it's coming up on 40 years this was a part of my life...actually was my life in the Summer of 69.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend....back later >>>>>>>>>>
