The following pictures are from Adam Bray. Adam is a website/graphic designer. He went
to visit his brother who is teaching english in China. He decided to tour Asia and eventually settled in Phan Thiet.
He knew that there were American forces stationed in Binh Thuan but found many of the locals resistant
to talk about the war. In searching he contacted Rolando Salazar, 1st Cav LZ Betty and eventually contacted me.
He has been of great help in gathering information for me and Rolando on our old area of operation.
