China Beach R&R Center, Republic of South Vietnam June 1968
TO MILLIONS OF AMERICAN VIEWERS, China Beach was
merely the backdrop for a hit TV show.
But it was dead real to thousands of GIs, offering them
a rare respite from battle. The Vietcong used the place
as a terrorist base. Later, it launched the boat people,
perpetuating the tragedy of the Vietnam War for a new generation.
