These pictures were taken by Robert Struck while in Phuoc Vinh Airbase. I had been looking for some photos of phuoc vinh to be placed on my web site. I was stationed at papa victor in 1967 with the 3/187 rakkasans B Company 101st Abn Div. Our unit did not stay long in one place because we were desiqinated to be a reactionary force in 3 corps. We took over from the big red 1 and continued to operate with a number of units during TET.
