Camp Rainier - Tay Ninh Province
Camp Rainier was built in November, 1966 by the 2/12th and 2/22nd and became the 3rd Brigade 4th Div base camp. Home to Michelin Rubber Plantation to our right and the Ben Cui Rubber Plantation to our left. A glorious hiding spot for the VC. The rubber trees offered excellent cover from aerial observaton and difficult to see into from the ground.
This is John Spoores from Indiana, who was in my platoon. He may have been my squad leader at the time when I first got in country. He was there when we were still in the 4th Division.
