Duc Pho Photos

My Company arrived by boat on the beach near Duc Pho on April 13, 1967. We constructed a road from the beach to the airfield at LZ Bronco (Duc Pho Hill)

We started setting up our camp at the Duc Pho Hill compound on June 11, 1967. I got my camera and started taking these pictures in October of 1967.

The time frame for the photos in the Duc Pho area is from the October 6, 1967 till December 6, 1967.

Chu Lai and LZ Baldy Photos

These photos were taken from December 9, 1967 to February 1968.

Most of these photos were taken in an area a few miles north of Chu Lai and south of Hoi An. We were west of Highway QL1 along a road named 535. This site was called Hill 63 because there was a hill nearby that had an elevation of 63 meters on the map. View map (large file) of Hill 63 area. The airfield at this location was called LZ Baldy.

The last two photos on the Goin' Home page show the barracks at Cam Rhan Bay where we stayed while processing to leave for home.

Go to Frank Nyross's Beach Photos -

If you were in the Duc Pho area on June 20, 1967 then you would have heard, felt and seen the explosion of the ammo depot on the beach near Duc Pho (Guadalcanal). Frank Nyross was involved with the clean up after this and has provided some photos that show what the beach was like after the ammo dump there blew up.

Frank was with the 46th Engineer Detachment at Qui Nhon. When the beach blew up on June 20 he was sent there with a D7 Dozer to help clean up and somehow ended up assigned to the 101st's 326th Engineers.
