I met SSgt Wissig at the Omaha airport. We were both in uniform, on our way to Vietnam. That's why I went over & talked to him. We traveled all the way to Phu Cat together. I visited his hooch one time to see how the SP's lived. His death has been with me since it happened. I felt so bad for his family. He was to retire after his time in Vietnam. He left behind a wife & 4 children I believe. So sad. I worked there as a computer tech, maintaining the base supply computer. I was attached to the 1883rd Comm Sq.

Greetings from Poland.

Thank you for the view and kind comment. I was stationed at Phu Cat Air Base with the, US Air Force, 30th Weather Squadron in 1970/71..I had an amateur interest in photography and a lot of 35mm transparency film. When I first became acquainted with Google Earth, I began looking at Vietnam to see how it had changed over the years. There was very little imagery (5 years ago ) of Qui Nhon, Phu Cat AB, and Pleiku.
I got out my old color slides and found a cheap scanner, and pinned as many images as Google Earth would permit. My trip to Qui Nhon was a one time exoeriance, due to security issues at that time. Please enjoy the images of a time gone by, and pray history never again repeats itself.. Peace and health my friend. Al Walker PS thank you for the update on the Champa Temple.

Спасибо AnnaV, это окраина моего села, места детства.
I want to thank you for all those pictures you took of Plieku, and around all the bases. I was station on signal hill east of the us air force. Those antennas were hard to miss, they were huge and tall. I am having problems trying to find the same spots that you had them before. I was with the 1st Signal Brigade Plieku Nov. 1967-Mar.1969.
