Bill Cook replies: Chu Lai has no VN meaning. It's Chinese for Krulak, the general who thought that swamp was a good place for a base. We do business with a shop in Saigon. Excellent product, good price. And liked the food there too.

I also went on 2 or 3 convoys from phu bai to danang and back. I am thinking about in a year or two going back to viet nam on a vacation. Bill Cook replies: These were big, like chimpanzees, not little monkeys. Did the same convoys. Understand Hai Van Pass is now a tunnel. Been to Saigon on business, not yet back to I Corps. Hue is on the bucket list.

That reminds me of Pirates of the Caribbean, LOL
Hi, Bill, Good old days, only a few pods, enlighten me ;-)
Yes, that also happened to me in New Orleans. He said: "You already took the picture, now give me a buck"
Great shots Bill so much history in one small building compared to the skyscrapers nearby..
