Đông Hà Air Field AB, Radar
One of the TAC Radar units at Đông Hà Air Field. Also, across the road from us was a SAC radar unit.
I understood it helped coordinate B-52 strikes. Shortly before I left Đông Hà Air Field it took a direct hit
  from artillery and all the radar trucks were destroyed. Fortunately, no one was injured. I was on
post that night guarding the SAC unit. We all made it safely into a bunker.

Đông Hà Air Field AB, Direct Hit & one KIA -1
A quantset hut took a direct hit from a 140mm rocket. One AF personnel
was killed, A1C Wolfgang Haegele, I believe he was a radar tech.

Đông Hà Air Field AB, DirectHit - Truck
A rocket hit under a deuce and 1/2. That's me in the hole.

Đông Hà Air Field AB, Rocket
140mm rocket that was captured by a Marine Recon patrol
shortly after the attack. Displayed in our personell office.

Đông Hà Air Field AB, Twin 40
An Army unit brought in a twin 40 anti-aircraft gun that was
brought in to protect our eastern berm line after we received
several mortar attacks.

I always wondered what happened to Korat RTAFB. I left the base in July of 1967.
