Hi all. Reading the blogs brings back fond memories of our days in Saigon. I was there from 62 until the evacuation in 65. My brothers Ken (class of 64) and Darrell were also there (class of 66, as was I).
I do remember the bombing of the Kinh Doh. If memory serves me correctly (somewhat doubtful), it occurred on a Sunday evening. The movie playing was something called ‘The List of Adrian Messenger.’ I also remember the bombing of Pershing Field, and in late 64, the bombing of the Brinks BOQ.
We were somewhat deprived in Saigon because we didn’t ever get snow days away from school. But we made up for that by occasionally getting coup days off.
I do have copies of the 63, 64, and 65 Geckos, all of which are in pretty good condition.
