Some Photos I Took Of The Orphanage Next To Newport Terminal
Orphanage Across The Fence From Newport
Shortly after arrival in country, I was asked by the Battalion Chaplain, Capt. Wills, to work with him on civic projects.  As my job changed, I was not able to devote the time I would have liked.  Only one participation in October
1967 and one more with Chaplain Capt. Park on September 8, 1968.  I was relieved of my responsibility by SP4 Lynn Heckart from Independence, Oregon in September.  We transported 37 boys and 2 girls from the orphanage
next to Newport to Camp Camelot.  The children sang songs in Vietnamese and English.  They were well disciplined and courteous.  They were taken to the 24 Evac Hospital for exams and smallpox and diptheria shots.  After a
movie and talk in the chapel, there was a meal served to them in the mess hall, with CO and other officers in attendance.  Later they were returned to the orphanage next to Newport.  There were lots of tears in our eyes as we just
wanted to take all of them home with us.  I don't believe we were ever officially responsible for helping the orphans but because they were right next to us at Newport, we wanted to help out as much as we could.  Anyone having
more info on this, please contact
me or Al ,
