1st Medical Battalion - Da Nang

I was one of 10 6×6 trucks from Motor-T, 1st Med Bn. We were the first at the blast to remove military and civilian personnel from the blast. The blast was so severe it almost blew our trucks over. I made many trips from there to 1st Med on the other side of Freedom Hill.  Everything was leveled to the ground. PX at Freedom Hill…Sea bees base gone… driving back and forth.  Ordnance was blowing onto the road… some of which exploded… there for 36 hours… one hell of a time.
