Khe Sanh

Before the Tet offensive in 1968 NVA siege the American base Khe Sanh. One of the reasons was that NVA wanted to draw the attention away from the movements around the cities. Today there isn't much left of the old base, just a small museum that tells us about the Vietnamese version of the battle.

My father next to a 105mm Howitzer, still pointing towards the surounding hills. Behind the canon you can see a monument.

Craters are still visible in the middle of the old flightstrip.


Inside the museum you could "borrow" a M-16.
