A Flash from the Past (Again)

A couple months ago, I posted about a site with photos of Bravo Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry in Vietnam. Bravo was my sister company in that battalion so the places were pretty much the same as my experience. Noodling around with the links from that site I came across another site with topo maps of our operations.

I was at FSB Silver in January 1971 and Jeffries in May. In between, the 2/8 operated mostly from FSB Fontaine which is in the same area of operations but not located on any of the maps. I recall Silver as dry, hard and dusty. Fontaine was dry and dusty. Jeffries was a mud hole.
