Hi my name is Jim, i worked on the new bridge at Bong Son. I was with Co B of the 84th. I drove one of the bull dozers, was running around in the river building the road across the river so the pile driving crane could get down and drive piles. I left there in May of 1970 to come come. I go into Vietnam in march of 68 and was at a compound about half way between QuinNhon and BongSon and them we went south of QuinNhon to help build the road south towards tuywhay and then north to BongSon to build the new bridge. We had our compound right by the river there on the south side.
