Google Earth indicates the elevation of Nui Ba Den as 2988' (911 meters) but my military topo map (printed in 1968) shows it at 986 meters. I knew that our 155 mm howitzers at Fire Base Washington kept blasting at it but I didn't think we blew 75 meters off the top!

I was stationed at Tay Ninh, South Viet Nam in '69 & '70 during the war. Was with the 508 TTP division on base that received the supplies sent there each day by flatbed trailors. I saw this mountain everyday as it was being shot and blasted while fighting our enemy. I think this is the first image of the mountain that I have seen since I left there. It does bring back memories and looks the same. ...Rick

Xin chào anh NNTL,

Bức ảnh này rất tuyệt! Màu sắc của bầu trời chuyển từ đậm sang lợt, ngọn núi thì mờ ảo lại còn in bóng nước... nhìn như một tác phẩm được tạo ra bởi máy tính! Rất đẹp!

Tay Ninh mtn. Yes I remember this mtn as well. A troop. 1st of the 9th air calv. In fact, I went there each and everyday. I was the commander's crewchief. I was stationed at Phouc Vinh. We owned the top of the mtn., and the bottom. THEY OWNED THE MIDDLE. We took heavy fire from the sides. We blasted those bastards to hell, and they still came back for more. There isn't a day that passes without my thoughts going back to that place. Wishing we had done something differently than we did. Just think what we as a people could have done for ourselves if we had gotten involved the way we did. Different day different time. Oh well, as the song says, I HOPE WE DON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN. Sincerely... Frank.

I have areil pictures of the top of the mtn taken in 1968 from an O1E Bird Dog while acting as an AO directing artillery fire near the mtn. Prior time was in Tay Ninh as XO of 105mm howitzer battery. Looked at mtn every day and wondered why VC were so insistant on getting hammered by artillery. I have no interest in ever "visiting" again.
