At that time, there was no road with street lamps between the two buildings or the new entrance, which was cut in under the bridge.  Sure looks different than when I was there. Right Photo - Another great photo taken from the bridge.

Greg Farris - Saigon Port - Just Received The Army Commendation Medal - Late 1969

I worked at the barge site at Newport Terminal.  In early 1968, I was moved to the deep draft area of Newport.  In July of 1968, I was transferred to Camp Davies and worked on the depot move.  I finished my tour and went back on my first extension in November
1968.  I worked at gate 9 and gate 3 at the Saigon Port for both extensions and was discharged from the Army in December 1969.

Newport - Thu Duc - Along 1A
Left Photo - Main Entrance To Newport Terminal - Ground Level - Right Photo - Webmaster - This photo was taken by Mike Haas in Sept 2005 and is also on his photo page 48.  Thought it would be neat to show both photos together whereas they were both taken from
the same location, one on the overpass and one under the overpass.
