  • Black Cats - 67' Camp Reasoner



    One for A. Ronnie
    Members of the US 1st Air Cavalry, march through the
    forest en route to Chu Phong mountain, in the Ia Drang
    Valley, Vietnam, 1965. In November 1965, the 1st Air
    Cavalry fought some fierce battles in the Ia Drang
    Valley region of the Central Highlands. The battle
    marked the first military engagement between US and
    North Vietnamese ground forces. The US inflicted heavy
    casualties on the North Vietnamese (2500 dead) and
    lost 234 of its own soldiers with an additional 300
    being wounded.

      • Great great photos guys!

        I have over 200 photos from when my father was stationed at Ubon in Thailand from '70-'71. If there's any interest in seeing some in-theater photos from the USAF in Thailand I'd be happy to share some.

            • Thanks, Boonie.

              Here's a few. I'll post more as time goes on.


              Village outside base perimeter. (January 1971)



              Possibly the world's smallest Howard Johnson's! I'm not sure if this was taken on-base or off, but I've always found this photo amusing. (January 1971)



              Downtown Ubon (March 1971)



              8th TFW HQ (March 1971)



              Munitions Pre-Load. BLU 27-B Napalm canisters and M36 Incendiary bombs. (March 1971)



              My father and those beautiful AC-130 40mm Bofors. (July 1971)



              My father and a couple of other airmen taking a moment in the rear of an AC-130. I love this shot - it's currently my wallpaper on my laptop. (July 1971)



              Another of my father and an AC-130 (July 1971)



              ...and another. (July 1971)


              More to come.

              • I and many others owe our lives to the actions of the ac-130 and her crews. To her and her crews -

                  combat-assaulted into Laos during Operation LAM SON 719. the photo
                  was taken by an australian advisor to the 2nd Regiment:

                  • Great photo, Boonie.

                    My father assisted in the upload of munitions to aircraft that supported these troops.

                        I'm looking for any good color pictures taken during the battle of Hamburger Hill (Operation APACHE SNOW, 10-20 May 1969). If you know of any please let me know
