Headquarters, 4th Infantry Division
at Camp Enari
This was my home away from home for a whole year.
The Division chapel,
complete with a bell (out front) & a steeple
The Division HQ was . . .
. . . across the "Administrative Street"
from the SJA office & several other offices of the General's special & personal staff.
I shared this old FEMA trailer with 2 chaplains. It had running water & a flush toilet.
So I seldom used one of these fancy latrines. The "collection" was burned with gasoline every few days. Ugh!
When the 122 mm rockets started falling, I would
dash for this bunker.
The General was a volleyball player.
Until he had this pad built, we played either in deep red mud or deep red dust.
A bunker line protected the camp.
These Montagnard boys managed to get into our "sealed" camp regularly, always begging for candy - and they never see a dentist.
Another view of Dragon Mountain,
this time in the wet season
