    Once, I recall a web site that contained a glossary of terms and villeges in Nam. I would love to visit that site again but can't recall it's address. Does anyone have it book marked?

    BG, I have this book here at my desk named THE OXFORD. On the front cover, it is defined as the essential dictionary of the U.S. Military. On the aft cover page is an address as follows:

    Perhaps it will point up something for your referencing. Good Luck. wilborn

    I typed in the words "Vietnamese Phrases" in Jeeves and found Grumpys..he has a copy of a booklet given out to the incoming soldiers in Mam..must have been after my time tho.
    The web address was a bunch of mumbo jumbo so you'll have to do the search. It came up on the first page.

    BG, another thought for you. Scroll down this page to google and enter <defense language institute>.
    Down the page where it mentions the army school at Monterey, California, it may give you some hints as to who you may question--perhaps even to request a booklet on the subject. In the last battalion I was the S-2 and had to seek training sources for personnel. I remember sending key personnel to the Vietnamese language portion of the DLI, Monterey. They did magic for our troops in just six weeks. Good luck. Wilborn
