IN HONOR AND MEMORY - Installations and Facilities of the Vietnam War
by Master Sergeant Ray Bows, US Army, Retired
Based on extensive research, this 800 page hardbound book is an invaluable reference tool. It is a comprehensive record of all known named installations and facilities in South Vietnam and Southeast Asia, including Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Okinawa, and Guam, which were in operation between 1956 and 1973. The book provides military biographies of servicemen important to our nation's history, when men who served our country honorably during the Vietnam War were memorialized officially by the U.S. military, or unofficially by their contemporaries.
For the last twenty-five years, Master Sergeant Ray Bows, US Army, Retired (1963-1983) has collected information, and researched details obtained from official records and unit histories, as well as from veterans and families who have personal knowledge of overseas locations named for a buddy lost or a beloved family member.
IN HONOR AND MEMORY is full of never-before-seen photographs and a score of maps designed specifically for verification of site locations detailed throughout this volume. Additionally, the multitude of fire bases and landing zones which existed during the war, are each identified by province, unit and grid coordinates.
Bows' book, IN HONOR AND MEMORY, enables living Vietnam veterans to find their own place in the history of the Vietnam War and to connect with the locations which they once called home. This book serves to remind each of us that every soldier who did his duty in Vietnam is a hero, and his or her fellow soldiers are the ones who best know this and wish to remember.
