Da Nang PX

I remember it well also it was at the foot off Hill-327. I spent many sundays trucking Marines to the PX and Beer Garden there. Had more than a few there myself and even met one of my drill instructors there. The thing that I remember the most about the beer garden is that it was huge and always full of service personel from all branches and we all had to check our weapons in at the door. Also a great place to appropriate a new jeep or 5 ton from the Army to give the mechanics something to paint MC green and put new TAC marks on.

Was a Bn radio chief in 1968 down the road at 1st Recon Bn. One of my radio operators came to me with a sad story of how he misplaced his PRC -25 while consuming excessive amounts of local beer (ba-mu-ba/33 beer). I gave him two options; one go tell t”the man” his tale of woe, or wander down to Freedom Hill and “find” one. Needless to say he chose option two.

In reply to Y Hodge.
Appropriation is the best nation to be from when your deployed. When I was in Somalia before Blackhawk down happened, we would get our MRE’s and a little extra when the supply guys were not looking. We never got caught and enjoyed the large tins of food that were meant for the chow hall but found our stomachs first. SEMPER FI to all who earned the title.

No PX, No R&R, No Beer Gardens, No USO. Danang was a blip in the night leaving Vietnam in the early morning hours on a Pan Am flight for El Toro, late November 1966. LCpl Allen 1/5, Hill 54

We also acquired vehicles and other “stuff” from the Army. Some bigwigs were coming to visit one time so someone decided we should hide the extras even though they were painted and numbered. Of course the numbers didn’t match anything in our books. We hid them by taking them for a tour, just driving around “some place else”. Gordon 2/12/3MarDiv

Made it to the PX once. Don’t remember the beer garden but do remember the USO or was it the Red Cross place to the side of the PX with nice looking round eyes passing out coffee, soft drinks and snacks. Heard rumors that there was a Division sanctioned massage parlor there also. I’m sure that because Marines have such high moral standards massages were all that were performed.there. With all the Army units new in country it was a good shopping place for other things. I rode a gun truck to the PX filled with other battalion people . Left with a new barrel for my Ma Duce. Always wondered what the dogface thought when he found an almost smooth bore barrel on this brand new Duce.
