Subject: China Beach photos - How can I get them?

Don ... I really liked those pictures [recently posted on the homepage] of China Beach ... man did that really bring back memories .... I bet I made it down to the beach at least once or twice a week .... I took my in-country R&R there ... the R&R center there had the best cheeseburgers and fries ... the bridge was not the same [as in the pictures] ...they change that old one out.

When I got there I would walk ... hitch a ride ... or take the bus ... till I asked the question ... what's the chain link fence on the windows for? "so they don't throw grenades through the windows" ... ah, hell no ... I walked and hitch rides from then on.

For me it was a place to go to get away form the real reason I was there. I was on vacation in the daytime and in the land of a thousand dances at night ... I worked Tiger Flight ... It really was the worst of times and the best of times.

Is there some way I could get those pictures sent or not? It's just that those were really good!
