While spending my 2wks. in Saigon to see a dermotologist [see: MY VERY BEST TIME IN VN] I heard some of the REMFs talk about an in-country R and R. It was supposedly 3 days spent at Vung Tau, a city at the mouth of the Saigon River on the South China Sea. It was in III Corps so I had never been there, but I guess it was pretty nice. The REMFs said that everyone in-country was supposed to get the R and R. I had never heard of such a thing. During my year there, I never knew one grunt that ever got this mini vacation. Nor on my second tour, although most of that was spent at Cam Ranh Bay. A trip to Vung Tau would have been redundant :mrgreen: . Through the years, as I came in contact with other VN vets, I heard other guys talk about hearing of it, but have yet to meet or talk to anyone that actually got to go. I've even heard that the Marines had a similar thing at China Beach at Danang, but have never met a mud Marine that ever was rewarded with it. So.......maybe it was just an urban legend.
