My name is Tom Reckers.  I served in Vietnam from July 1969 to September 1970.  I was with the 402nd Transportation Company, (Terminal Transfer). We were located at Camp Camelot, Long Binh Post.  I worked my
entire tour at the Binh Hoa barge site unloading ammo, bombs, and napalm for the Air Force base at Bien Hoa.  I took about 300 photos which I sent home, and here they are. All the photos on this page were taken in or
around the Binh Hoa barge site.
