25th Infantry Div. 65th Engineer Bn. Company E

The 65th Engineer Bn. left its home base in Schofield Barracks Hawaii On Janurary 4th, 1966. we left Hawaii by ship. We were on the USNS General Nelson M. Walker with all our Equipment. Elements of the 1st Battalion 14th Infantry (GOLDEN DRAGONS) were also onboard. On JANUARY 16, 1966 the USNS General Walker dropped anchor in Cam Rahn Bay.The 1st Battalion 14th Infantry left the ship headed for Pleku. We sailed South heading for Vung Tau Where we would leave the ship. From Vung Tau we flew to Bien Hoa where we would wait for our equipment and the trip to Cu Chi.Here's a video on Youtube of our arrival in Viet Nam. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-3usWZUytI&list=WL&index=16
All of the pictures were taken between January and October 1966. Most of them are at the Base Camp in Cu Chi. When I arrived in Cu Chi there was no Base Camp. We were there to build one before the rest of the divsion arrived. We were supported by the 1st Infantry division (Big Red 1) till our Division started arriving. I was in E company (the Bridge Co.)We didn't build many bridges so most of the time we used our trucks to haul in supplies from Saigon. A trip a day for the first month or two. After that we did a lot of construction around the base camp. I left Viet Nam in October of 1966.
