Message Pete, the marines had a camp right outside the ville of Nui Loc Son. We

had guys there on occasion too. It was a small hill that had some rather

large bunkers on it. This ville was between LZ Ross and Center. Our

Company walked through Nui Loc son a few times. We bought sodas and

could get a hair cut there with the old squeeze clippers, usually pulled most

of the hair out. LOL Pf's were there also. Stoney

Message Ron, <br><br>I believe LZ East was Hill 488. I know there was an article in

Readers Digest back in 1968 about the Marine battle there.

Message Hill 448 is LZ East, prior to that the Marines had a small but really tough

battle with the NVA, the most decorated battle for the Marines that fought

there....all depicted in the book Hill 448....great read (paper back),

suggested to me by Big Jim Pongonis....

Message Bill Russell.<br><br>Your book titled &quot;Road of 10,000 Pains-the

Destruction of the 2nd NVA Div by the US Marines in 1967,&quot; details

the Marine Corps operations Union and Union II. The 3rd Battalion 5th

Marines fought against the 3rd North Vietnamese Army Regiment, and 21st

North Vietnamese Army Regiment. The area of the battles include Phuoc

Ha Valley and Nui Loc Son Basin (Que Son Valley). It is probable that the

Marines may have used LZ Center, but verifying it may not be so simple.
