I was in headquarters at Lai Khe the whole year of 67. I remember that spot very well. I was back there 3 years ago and hardly recognized the place. Ben Cat has a major 6 lane highway through it.

Actually drove thru the area a couple times yesterday heading to visit friends in Loc Ninh. Kinda strange driving thru Lai Khe at 60 miles an hour on a 6 lane highway!

I was in Company C, 2/28 at Lai Khe quite a bit after this photo was taken. I sure do remember this spot very well. Took off to a few hot areas from there Sep 68 - Dec 68.
