When I got to CanTho in March of 68, there was a small PX in a quanset hutch on the left side of the road, going toward the main gate. I also recall buying cases of pop from an area on the right side of the road, going toward the main gate. Pop was $2.40 a case and beer might have been double that amount (can't remember because I didnt drink beer back then). Anybody remember the potatoe chips and cookies in the tin cans? Sometime between 68 and 70, they built a new, larger PX on the first crossroad coming from the main gate. I believe it was on the same "road" that the camp headquarters and movie theatre were on. I believe it was next to the movie theatre. The theatre used to also double as a church/chapel.
