Who could ever forget our first experience in Vietnam?
We landed in Binh Hoa on Christmas Eve, 1966, in pouring rain and very high temperatures.
We had travelled in a C141 Transport from Benning to Vietnam via Alaska and Japan.
Our Christmas Eve was spent getting "setup" in tents and trying to get some sleep.
The following morning at a ridiculous hour, we were wakened for breakfast and a Santa in fatigues with gifts. It was a very unique Christmas Day. My first Christmas away from family at the ripe old age of 20.
