    On the story of Smashing Sanctuaries in Cambodia I have pictures taken by my friend and member of the 221st Signal Company (PIC) SEAPC with HQ in Long Binh. I served there from June 1969 thru July 1970. My first 6 months in country I flew all around VN doing repairs to equipment on the units detachments all over Nam. Then on my last 6 months and when I got promoted to E5 I was sent to Saigon Det in Ton Son Nough. On june when I very short I was asked by my NCOIC SSG Miguel Perez to do some driving as usual as I done before and was to take SP/5 Gonzalves to go Dau Ha area and from there to Tai Ninh and comiong back was the litlle wrong turn taht almost got us kill. i would loke to contact Captain Michael Christy to send him some of those pictures.
