This web page brought back memories that I had forgotten. As an 11 Bravo

with the 1/27 Wolfhounds I saw Dau Tieng as a safe haven untill Feb. 22,

1969. I was on ambush that night just to the left of the airstrip and just

inside the woodline where the gooks came through. We were caught in a

crossfire all night long and gooks were everywhere. If my memory serves me

correctly, we pulled ambush in Dau Tieng for a few nights. We were trying to

eliminate what was still in the base camp. We left Dau Tieng in July, when

the first infantry came in. My platoon was the last to leave Dau Tieng.
