Novel about An Hoa: "Sand in the Wind"

I read this novel in the 80s. Curious if anyone else read this novel about 2/5 at An Hoa. Was the author of it, Roth, an officer?

Steve Douglas photos of An Hoa....

Steve emailed me some photos of the day in Jan 68 when 2/5 was airlifted from An Hoa to Phu Bai. I have not heard from Steve since last year. Has anyone had contact with him?

Roads in Vietnam are improved...

Boardman, Since 1994 when I first went back to VN the roads are vastly improved. You can take Rt. 49 from Hue to A Luoi in the A Shau Valleny near Laos and be there in 60 to 90 minutes on paved two-laner. The road to An Hoa via the Champa ruins at My Son was rough in 1997. New bridges are evident in...

Operation Baxter Garden, April 1968

Curious if anyone out there was on Baxter Garden.

I seem to remember two guys being taken prisoner, possibly from a listening post.

p.s.

Are you going on the trip to Vietnam in '08? I know a driver from my visit there last year who speaks English well. He is in his 60s and said he worked with Marines during the war.

Photos of An Hoa

Do you know if there are any photos out there of An Hoa from late 67 and early 68?

I was in the airlift to Phu Bai in Jan 68.

I was with Hotel 2/5 at the time.

Been back to the An Hoa area since the war?

I was there in Feb 97. The asphalt airstrip that replaced the metal airfield matting is still in place but not much else. I bought six dogtags from a farmer and posted them on a vets forum. One vet responded and I sent him the tag.

If you have been back to that area let me know.

Is this site primarily a 2/5 Vietnam thing?

I haven't been around this site in some time. Curious. I was with Hotel 2/5 in 1968 before volunteering for a Combined Action Platoon where I finished my tour.
