    I was assigned to AT 34 in Dalat, 1965. Spent two years there and have been back 8-10 times.I remember most of the places you guys are talking about but not any of the guys. We lived in a villa until 31 Dec 1965 when the VC blew it up and killed Krause, we then moved into the modern hotel right by the steps and across from the main market. Moved in Krause compound about March of 66.

  2. I was in the 362Signal Co. Dalat, during TET 1968. WE were converted to11B and did S&D. We secured the MP Villa and vehicles. Also I was on a “Reactionary Team” that retrieved people from the Embassy, downtown. Not much written about our activities during the 1968 Offensive(classified??). My DD-214 has no record of my time there!

  3. My brother and I sent Christmas card and cigarettes to a Captain W T Cooper in 1965. He replied in March 1966. I was in second grade at Catholic school in small town in Ohio. I have always wondered and prayed that Captain WT Cooper made it home and had a good life. Does anyone have any information on this man ? God Bless..

    • I was an advisor at the VN Military Academy from Dec 66 til April 67. Did not encounter Cooper. Sorry.

      • Captain W T Cooper was an advisor to a Vietnamese combat engineer battalion . 1966, Thanks for any information. And thanks for your service. God Bless you all.

  4. I was in Dalat Dec 66 to May 67, as an advisor at the VNMA. I recall Chuck Radler, and an AF LTC, first name Larry. There was also a CWO who gave “lessons” in bridge. I remember our French-trained cook who gave us fabulous meals. Our villa was not too shabby either, private bedrooms, tiled baths. Coming from a field assignment with VN Rangers I thought heaven was near. Anyone out there from this time period??

  5. My Dad was SFC E7 Bob Burk, Operations/Intelligence Advisor Team 34, Don-Duong 65–66. He served with now BG Forrest T Gay III Ret. I have several pictures that I digitized from the area if anyone has interest.

    • I was stationed at don duong in 1967 I would like to see any pictures you have of the place, your dad must have been there when the Seabees were there, they left after I was there for a few months, thanks

  6. In 1972 to 1973 I was living in the enlisted men’s compound which was a French Villa on Tran Hung Dao Street, Dalat. There were only a Sargent and myself in this compound. Most of the Americans were gone by this time.

    • Sam, would you happen to remember an incident where the Air Force crew chiefs were ambushed driving down from the air field? I don’t recall the date but this happen in 1968.
      J V Ramirez USAF Ret.
