Eddie Mitchell's Tan Son Nhut Story

8th APS Mobility
1969 -1970



I arrived at 8th APS TSN April 7,1969 from McChord  AB w/ a little stopover at Hamilton AB for training. In the 1st pic. a friend of mine had a new camera and got me coming from shower so I tried to look cool. The 2nd pic. was taken in April by the same friend at a gun emplacement in down town Saigon. The 3rd pic. shows a C-130 (mortar magnet) that was on receiving end of something nasty. I don't know when this happen (I took the pics. of this & truck after they were hit). The equalizer on K Loader was being shipped in country The barracks in pics. are across from Terminal.
