Da Nang

Dear Folks,

Didn't write a letter for the 12th. This is it. Yesterday evening at six we took 061 and went to Quang Tri to stand by there in case we were needed. We stayed about a half hour and then somebody decided we could go back to Da Nang. We left Quang Tri at about 7 pm. On the way back we stopped at Hue/Phu Bai Airport to pick up a guy going home on special leave. He had to go home because his brother in the states was shot and killed.

Got another piece of interesting information. I heard that if we do fly the center of our orbit will be Firebase Sarge which I understand is somewhere due west of Quang Tri.

Saw "Paint Your Wagon" at the main compound yesterday. That's it. No mail of course.
