I arrived in Can Tho around the middle of Dec 67 and I remember the second night in camp we had a mortat attack.At that time the bunkers consisted of a sand bag wall about three feet high and no roof.I have some faint memories about the sapperattacks and I do remember the aircraft being blown up.m If my memory is right they did not start building regular bunkers with roofs till Tet.i do remember we had to sleep in the bunkers at night because there were mortat attacks quite often.In fact I remember being on bunker detail.Does anyone over there at that time remember this.I also think after the first Tet down town became off limits Ski
