From Ron a reader:
I came across your site as I was looking on the net and thought you might want some additional pictures of the base as it was in 1969. I was a US Marine radio operator and was in charge of LZ (landing zone) for one of many operations in the area. I used to stand out on the very edge of the cat walk going off the main landing platform and talk to the helicopters and guide them in.
Thank you Ron! I really appreciate the photos as there are very few out there. My dad Major Frank Maki was at FB Fuller May 1971 until June 22, 1971 when sadly he was killed in action. He was the only American lost in that action.
