One way I knew I was still in Vietnam when I was stationed in Cam Ran Bay was to turn on the radio and listen to
Armed Forces Radio. Other than that this little Navy Market Time base was like a secluded beach on the coast of
Central America. You could check out a surf board or even a catamaran from special services.
I did get to take a weather observation in a typhoon (and broke the animometer). I also had my own jeep. It was probably the most rattle trap vechile in the entire world. You could see through the floor board. The seat was broken and sparks flew all over the place when you drove it and I was always thinking it was about two seconds from blowing sky high. I had to have it because the little cove that the base was located on was anything but exposed. I went up the pennusular about a mile or so to get to the most exposed beach in the area to take the surf observations.
