 We'd just led the 1st convoy thru to Khe Sanh in the 14yrs  since  Dien Bien Phu... and I was looking' forward to washing' off  some of that red clay dust; but 1st "an official" photo... (ps : notice who drove...)  It also marked our last day with the 11th Marine Engineers - a great bunch of guys.

 

(This picture supplied by Lt DeVita.)
