Vietnam, 1970 - 1971, A Troop, 3rd of the 17th Air Calvary, U.S. Army
        
          

Pictures from my (Dan Cannon's) 1970-1971 tour in the Vietnamese cities of:
Cam Ranh Bay, Bein Hoa, Di an, Soc Trang, Lai-Khe, Quan Loi, An Loc
    
My entry into Army, 25-March-1969, age 17, to Viet Nam, 11-January-1970, age 18,
exit Viet Nam & Army, 31-October-1971, age 19, 2 years, 7 months active duty,
21 months in Vietnam
 
Some pictures have been contributed, found on the internet, and many I took...
I know somebody has the complete A Troop Yearbook Picture album, from I think 1970 or 1971,
on line or as scanned in files,  as I saw it/them posted in the years 1999-2000. 
 
I would love to post all those pictures here if somebody can provide them.
 
Thanks,
Dan Cannon

Chinouk, mostly used for cargo and troop carrier
 
  Sky Crane, mostly used to cargo and to pick up crashed aircraft.  Like the Chinouk in the picture to the left

3rd of the 17th Air Cavalry, U.S. Army
       
       
Think this tower went down in Lai Khai.  And, that I have climbed up it prior to its destruction
 
     
Off hand, I can't remember for sure which city this is.  Thinking it was An Loc.  BUT, might have been Quan Loi.  Think the trees are all rubber trees but might be wrong
 As a troop we would travel from city to city (Soc Trang, An Loc, Quan Loi, Lai Khai, and work with the Vietnamese Army and perform our missions.  We would stay for anywhere from 45 days to 6 months

My room was in the further (about in the middle of the picture) on this road on the right.  Across from the TOC and First Sergeants office.  I had a trip door under my bed so my girl friends could come and visit and not be seen entering or exiting.  They would then exit the side door of the building

My (Dan's) room, our troop was stationed either in the city of Anloc.  The door to my room was opposite of the First Seargeant's office.  Thus, I had a trap door under my bed where my female visitors could come and go unseen
 
This is under my bed where the trap door was.  Also, this was my dog, named Lazzy, named after an ex-Vietnamese girlfriend.  I had my dog for over a year and had to leave her there
 
Lizzy's pups on my bed with a visiting friend in the picture Think this might have been an air traffic control tower in Lai Khai

I was a Sergeant in charge of the Tactical Operations Center (TOC).  Pictured above is Robert Steck, a drafted college professor who was not happy being there and working for an 18 year old!   But we were friends and had a good time!

  The Scout platoon.  I remember this building and sight very clearly however I did not take the picture
   
   
      I am the guy in about the right center looking up.  About the 6th head from the left with shirt.  We were watching a strip show in either
An Loc or Quan Loi
I found this on the internet about 10 years ago.  Had no idea where it came from or who took it and was quite surprised to see something like that turn up
 
The troops partying.
