"The back yard" Bien Hoa Favorite Tip by Nemorino

Bien Hoa General: 33 reviews and 53 photos

  In the back yard, November 1964
by Nemorino

Favorite thing: --

This photo of me in the back yard, with the old man walking along the path beside the hedge, was taken in November 1964. Of course that's the Dong Nai River in the background.

Shortly thereafter our sergeants started stringing up trip flares around the edges of the back yard, so if anyone tried to sneak in at night a flare would go off.

One night a trip flare did go off and we all shot at it -- all except the half dozen "combat policemen" who were supposed to be stationed at the back of the house. We later found them huddled inside the house with blankets pulled up over their heads.

Next: The Police Chief

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
