July 1968 thru Jun 1969
Nha Trang was a beautiful costal town that, in its setting and
architecture, would have fit in very well on the French Riviera. The HQ of the
U.S. Army's II Field Forces (equivalent to an Army Corps HQ) was located there.
This was the 4th Division's next higher HQ and I was expected to make a courtesy
call on the SJA there upon my arrival and departure from the 4th Division. It was
late August 1968 before I belatedly made the first visit, but I made up for it
by making the farewell visit a month early, in late May 1969. Nha Trang was
indeed beautiful, but on the first visit I was too busy for any sight-seeing.
