2 - SP5 Norm Roy - Cam Ranh or Qui Nhon

I guessed at the two pictures labeled as GIs processing out for the trip back to the “World”. I’m pretty sure I did not have a camera when I flew into Cam Ranh Bay in the Fall of 1969. Several days later I was headed to Qui Nhon where I would be assigned to a unit. While there I met a dude in personnel processing that was in my basic training platoon (Ft. Lewis, WA.) named Larry. He said he could get me a position right in Qui Nhon where it was safe with nearly all the comforts of home. I almost took him up on it but in my mind I gave thought to the pretty decent training in artillery repair and finally artillery repair supervisor which upon graduation promoted me to Spec5. I felt I wanted to put that training to good use. We got drunk and stoned that night and the following morning I was on my way to Pleiku and the 62nd Maintenance Battalion. There is one photo showing some GIs heading for a flight from Pleiku Air Base to Cam Ranh. I wasn’t on it.
