    Hey G/W, your #4 photo shows Con Thein....I had a buddy KIA'd up there in 67..Donnie Barnes was his name...an E-8 Crew Chief building bunkers for the Marines..Our camp there in Dong Ha was named after him...right next to Delta Med...Donnie and I were E-3's together down in the Philippines in the early 50's building the Cubi Point Naval Air Station at Subic Bay..Donnie was a Heavy Equipment Operator...If you want to look in on Con Thein, go to google and pull up: CONE OF FIRE AT CON THEIN... Never really sure if the 'i' comes before the 'e'---oh, what the hell....! Did you know Con Thein meant, PLACE OF THE ANGELS or something like that? Chief
