The Bridge leading into Dau Tieng
This bridge was to the west of dau Tieng and
was of strategic importance to the area,
not only militarily, but commercially.
While our Company was in camp, squads of
men from our units and others would take turns
manning that bunker that protected the bridge
from the enemy. In the background you can see the
Black Virgin (nui ba den) Mountain.
This completes the Donald evans collection
of photos that he wanted to share with his
folks back home. Donald never had the opportunity
to explain the images he caught on film to his
family. These are the details that Don
wanted you to know about, showing the exotic locale
where he served so gallantly. Today many of the men
you see in the photos survived their tour in Vietnam
because of Donald's heroic deeds while administering
to them that day in January 1967. They never
forgot him, nor will any of the men of A/2/12.
