Cai Nua - 1/12/69

Postby Delta75 » Sun Feb 06, 2011 11:31 pm

Hello All,

Well....I believe that we are "beating a dead horse" and that we are as close...or as far away...from reaching agreement as to the accuracy of the platoon locations on Mac's map as we were two weeks ago; therefore, tomorrow morning (Tuesday, Feb 8 in Vietnam) I will be off to the Cai Nua area to take pictures and hopefully to have my wife interview a few local VC for me. I am hopeful that we can locate a VC who was there that night/day, and that he/they can tell us how many VC were involved that night.

On the way we will be taking the "river" road (runs just north of and parallel to the Mekong River) which passes thru "Snoopy's Nose" on the way to Cai Be. I will stop at Snoopy's Nose to take pictures of where another 9th Infantry ambush/firefight occurred. At Cai Be, we will turn North to intersect with old QL04 then turn West toward Cai Nua.

Hope to provide all of the pictures and the "further adventures of Jerry" to Robert as soon as we return to Vinh Kim Tuesday evening.



Jerry

Now all photos in this string are in the album with comments by Jerry under them

A new album has been made just for this particular stop on the journey. You can view it as a slide show and adjust the image size to get a good look at the images that Jerry has recorded.

Jerry is attaching comments to each picture. Check out the album and go to the bottom of each opened page. If his comments are more than the screen hit the full button to read all of the comment. ( You can adjust the photo image size by the choice in the top right of the Album screen as to pixel count once you open a photo from the thumbnail.)
