Cam Ranh Bay Area
If you flew into Cam Ranh Bay and were US Army, NCO or a Enlisted Man
you were processed "into country" here. You were lovingly referred
to as a "Cherry" by those already seasoned in Vietnam.
This area was just down the road from the 109th.
In 1966 through 1968 there was a Pontoon Bridge from the Cam Ranh peninsula
to the mainland. By 1970 this solid bridge structure replaced the Pontoon Bridge.
