    Hi: My name is Dr. John Mundt. I work at the VA in Chicago, and am trying to assist a veteran with service in Nha Trang locate people and info that can help support a VA claim. Kirk Daniels is the vet: he served as a medic at the 94th Medical Evacuation hospital in Nha Trang, from the establishment of that hospital there in 1966, thru January of 1967. He gave all the penicillin shots on the medical wards. Kirk is an African-American guy, 5'5", from here in Chicago. We're looking for anybody who may remember him, but ALSO for anybody who may have served in that medical hospital at that time. Best way to contact Kirk is thru me, at the above email address here at the Jesse Brown VA in Chicago.

    I have been looking for my long lost relative called MILAN PAUL NOVKOVICH, who had served in the US Army Air Forces. I found a person bearing this name in your message board and sent him a mail to mnovkovich@aol.com, but the message has not unfortunately reached him. I would be grateful if you could help me contact Mr Milan Paul Novkovich (send me his updated mail address) and possibly find my lost relative. Thank you most warmly. Jasenka Cigic

    I was at Nha Trang in 1965-1966.

    The base is now closed and has a fence around it. All flying is at Cam Ran (sp) Bay. My wife and I spent a few days there this January.

    The unit I was with was the 310 Air Commando Squadron. It had the c-123b/k. It was a detachment in early 1965 with the squadron stationed in Saigon. In the fall of 1965 the whole unit was moved to Nha Trang and was still there in April 1966 when I left. I do not remember when the squadron designations changed from the 310ACS.

    Bob Schwanke (rbs@cccomm.net)

    I was at Nha Trang AB from Feb 68 through Jun 69 and worked in the CBPO (personnel office). Originally had orders for Da Nang and when I got there, signed in and started to process, was diverted to Nha Trang. At first it irritated me, but later found out that it was a blessing. Spent many hours on the Nha Trang beach and in town. Anyone remember the small compound in Nha Trang city, which I think was run by the Army? It had a nice NCO club and excellent food, along with a fantastic view of the bay. I had quite a few buddies who were medics. Any and all emails will be appreciated.

    Does anybody remember Robert Berg, sheet metal shop? He was assigned to the 327th CAMRON, then shortly reassigned to a base in Thailand. From what he said, he spent a lot of time on the Beach waiting for his new orders.

    I was a Navy Lieutenant stationed at the Vietnamese Naval Training Center in '71-72. Lived in the navy barracks at Camp McDermott. Came across this website while surfing in a nostalgic mood. The photos bring back a lot of memories. Spent 28 more years in the Navy and retired in 95. Would like to hear from (Foul) Pete Fowler, Dick Faddis, Don (the Bird) Eschelman, or any other guys from the Navy or Army barracks across from us, in 71-72.

    Ron Leighton (akdilligas@starband.net)

    I'm looking for the unit that was straight down the road from I would say the southeast gate of camp McDermott Nha Trang. The gate was on the beach road and as your out looking at Nha Trang bay the gate was on your right. The best of my recollection the unit had a scorpion on it but not real sure. I need to know this unit. I'm trying to get a report that was written in dec 1966! As I recall driving down the road from the gate maybe 1/4-1/2 mile you came right to it. Help me please.
