Aerial view of Camp Carroll believed to be 1968 - sent to the 2/94th by Marine LTC Jerry Norton.

2/9 photo of Carroll.  Shows opposite side of hill described in 1967 photo.  B Battery was towards the helipad, A Battery along the left (West perimeter) C Battery was at the entrance to the area top. 

For you fellows that were there during this time frame I believe it was E Company 2nd Battalion 9th Marines that did battle with the NVA during the TET Offensive in early January and through March down in the valley and around Cam Lo bridge to keep them away from the big guns.  Also I think that H & S Company was involved also.  I know those guys were definitely my heroes!  Wounded were brought back to Carroll for treatment and then to Quang Tri I believe.
