mountains of Vietnam had several "passes". The objective of the
company was to cut the jungle back so many meters on either side
of the road to deter ambushes from the enemy. Camp was set up on
one end of
The pass, allowing the company to
travel into the area to clear the jungle growth. Once a
certain amount of area was cleared, camp would be moved to the
opposite end of the pass. The areas shown in these pictures,
once covered in jungle growth.
Inside the camp, the vehicles line up side by side..

tanks shown here are "pulling security" for a convoy coming
through the pass.
