Howdy Tommie;

"Evans Nine" is a little vague. What was this? A group of men? The nickname of a military unit? A location inside or outside the base perimeter? Camp Evans itself was a huge base located 24 Km. to the northwest of Hue and just to the west of Highway 1. It was primarily built by Navy Mobile Construction Battalions (Seabees), but Army Engineers were there too. During the time period that you mention, Camp Evans was the headquarters of the 3rd Bde of the 101st Airborne Div., but there was a lot of other stuff there too including units from the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force. There was a Field Hospital, squadrons of fixed-winged aircraft, squadrons of rotary-wing aircraft, artillery (both divisional and non-divisional), engineers, communications units, logistic units, and who knows what else.

I guess your best bet would be to try and get in touch with someone who was there. You could try leaving a message on the Navy Vietnam-Era Seabees website at http://www.vietnam-era-seabees.org/ or on the the 506th Infantry Regiment Association website at http://www.506infantry.org/ to see if anyone recollects the "Evans Nine".
