Here for an article that appeared in Vietnam
Magazine by Eric Hammel. If you served in the Que Son Valley
this is a must article for you to read.
During the War years the Marines established a base in Que Son
Valley called Nui Loc Son. This hill became one of the most
important positions for intercepting the flow of material and
troop movement moving down the Ho Chi Minh Trail. It became
the scene of many a battle during its occupation by the Marines
and later the Army and eventually the ARVN'S.
Vets With A Mission has constructed
several medical clinics in QuangNam-Danang Province. We have
built a clinic in the Que Son Valley. Many of the former NVA
and Vietcong officers of the war years are now the governments
party leaders in this area. It was such a strong hold of American
and South Vietnamese influence during the war that after 1975
it became necessary to construct several re-education camps
in this area. Below you will find photos of Marines occupying
Nui Loc Son plus several photos of one of the re-education camps
that is located next to what was the command center of Nui Loc
Son or Loc Son Mountain. The second link of this site will show
the work that Vets With A Mission has
done in the Que Son Valley.
