Excellent point John.  The spouses and kids served the same as the vet him/herself.  They made the moves, changed schools, made new friends, lost old friends, and tolerated separations just like their military father or mother.  In my case, they made it possible for me to complete a 20 year Air Force career.  Thanks to all spouses and kids of vets.

Welcome Home Jim Cooper.

Vung Tao was nice with the beach there.  I only made it to Vung Tao once and it was not for an in country R&R.

As I recall there was a maintenance ship just off shore.

We have a thread on here of old war stories, not gory or bad but just stories.  Feel free to add yours.

Just do a search on "War Stories".

Thank you.  Vung Tau was not an R&R Center when I was there.  They were building it when I left.  It was a small airfield with just a few hundred Americans and 65 Aussies.  We were in the old tin hangers on the airfield.  Yes, the beach was nice and so was the village.  They still liked us in those days.
