82.  1967-68,  52nd Sig. Co. area.  Does this show some of Can Tho Air Force's equipment?    I remember they had a gas turbine powered generator.  A long low unit that had a high-pitched whine to it, while we  had those stinky, loud diesel units.  Photo by: William Grohoski

85.  During Tet '68 a 52nd Sig NCO (E-6/7) jumped in his jeep, backed up cutting his wheels to the left, then spinning the wheels to the right he put it in first and gave it the gas.  What he didn't realize was that he had caught the guy cable in the rear bumper and when he took off he brought the mast holding this double bedspring antenna down, folding it like a carpenters ruler.  Made so much noise that we thought a plane had crashed. Does anyone recall any more details of this incident?  Photo by: William Grohoski

115.  Cemetery across fence from the tall signal tower. This usually got shot up every time we had an attack at night.  As the parachute flares would cast all sorts of weird shadows and the GI's in the guard towers would rake the cemetery with M-60's. The monuments were stucco bricks and then whitewashed. Photo by: Bill Grohoski

116. This picture was taken during TET '68. The 3rd building in the middle row had taken a mortar or RPG round and the shrapnel had peppered our barracks next to it.  My duffle bag and mosquito netting were shredded but luckily I wasn't in the barracks at the time.  Our barracks was the second one in from the road in the middle. 
 The barracks that Joe, Rick, Jim, and Fred stayed in is on the near corner with only the 1st floor showing.
