B-Team Ban Me Thout

I was with B-210 when it moved from Pleiku and opened in Ban Me Thout end of 1964. I think it was down town behind the MACV compound. Thinking back, it was at a bad location for defense. Does anyone know what happened to it during the Tet Offensive?

There is a bunch of VFOG's (Very Freak'n Ole Goats) that have their special place.
You might want to join them, as I know there are several still with us that were at Bun M Thuột

I think my father in law was around that area then. His early days were around the delta. He's mentioned Ban Me Thout several times. I believe he was at or around canal seven?? The area where Nick Rowe was scarfed up?? Anyway.. He's a VFOG also. He's 85 Now...
