    Bruce ;I was on that Sampan(cluster) and Phuloc(a couple a days)Hue,Troui,but the Sampan- Humped up that damn mountain,"ran out of water", ware out my machete cuttin threw the canopy, and NOTHING, nothing friggen hppened. Just knew for sure we were going to get ambushed and NOTHING. seems it was a 2 day hump to the top and a day down?(long time ago) Found a "beautiful cold stream" at the base of that mountain-filled canteens,drank water for what seem like an hour. Poured cold water all over ourslves and flack jackets, using our steel pots. Then to Hwy.1, picked up by duce and1./2s,back to PhuBai- where we found out the LT had taken us over the wroung mountain. Intel said there was still VC activity. Sending Delta Co., a couple of days later, over the correct mountain. They walked right into the middle of a VC strong hold and took heavy causalties. That's what I remember. Glad you made it back to the world. Chris AKA L/Cpl. Lambert . ps just found out about this sight well have pictures posted soon. Reply
