The photo abouve shows my exact location during the battle of the Newport Bridge.  If you look just  above my initials you will see a chain link fence, which is blurry because  of the moving jeep  the photo was  taken from.  I
was right  at the fence during  most of the battle.  During a lul in the fighting I could clearly hear the VC yelling down to us saying they were going to kill us and send us home in body bags. A night I will never forget

The  guy sitting in the lawn chair with his back to us was in the same unit I was in at Fort Eustis, VA.  He arrived in  the 154th  the  day before I did.  I had no  idea he would be there. The  first thing he  said to me  was SHORT.

The 154 TC  was one of  the companies  of the 71st Transportation  Battalion  which was  under the  4th Transportation Command.  We  were located  at Camp Camelot, Long Binh.  It was  headquarters for the 71st Bn at
that time.  I understand that it  later  moved to Newport Terminal.  We convoyed the 25 miles or so from  Long Binh to Newport  Terminal every day.  The primary duty of  the 154 TC was off-loading cargo at Newport.  I
worked directly  with the 71st Trans Bn Maintenance  operation at Newport.  At the time I  was there, Newport was a  24/7 operation with two  12-hour shifts.  Maintenance  was a  big problem and anyone  who  had  
mechanical skills  was needed  to maintain  and  repair  equipment  used  to off-load the  ships.  About a  month after  I was there,  the new consolidated maintenance building was completed and the maintenance group split
up into two shifts.  I  volunteered for the 12-hour night shift.  It was a little cooler at night, less brass around, and we were able to get a lot done.  The  only thing, Charlie  was usually  a little more  active at night,  especially
during the Tet 68 Offense, which I will talk about later on in the site.
