On December 6, 1967 we left Duc Pho (LZ Bronco) and traveled north along Highway QL1 to Chu Lai.  We were in Chu Lai for several days and then moved further north to our new site at Hill 63 (LZ Baldy) on Road 535.

 

The date was December 6, 1967 and we were all packed and ready to leave Duc Pho (LZ Bronco) and move north to Chu Lai.  We would be traveling on Highway QL1.  (Date:  December 6, 1967)

These two girls don't look too happy.  I suspect some of my fellow Ugly Americans were making some sort of crude comments to them.  This photo was taken along Highway QL1 somewhere between Duc Pho and Chu Lai.  (Date:  December 6, 1967)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here we are loading up and preparing to leave the Chu Lai compound to move to our new camp a few miles north of Chu Lai.  Actually we unloaded the truck because we thought we were going to get a new one.  We didn't so we then had to load everything back on the old truck.  (Date:  December 9, 1967)
