Ze583. In Viet Nam every little compound or barracks had a little Bar like this one in the Fort Derussy Army Museum. Most people enjoyed a beer or too, it was not political uncorrect at that time. The COMRATS even had small cigarette packs with about 3 or 4 cigarette sticks.

Ze578. The Army Museum at the Fort Derussy Beach Park has a corner of Rest & Recreation visits (R & R) of Viet Nam War service members coming here for R&R. Here are pictures of those R & R visits, I believe they were the shorter 7 day breaks; one could take advantage of during your normal year of service to the Viet Nam War. I never did that. For these short 7 day visit one could choose locations in the West Pacific area only and that included Hawaii, so you could meet your loved ones here in Hawaii.

Ze576. The Army Museum at the Fort Derussy Beach Park has a corner of Rest & Recreation visits (R & R) of Viet Nam War service members coming here for R&R. That sure reminded me at my R & R trips. I had extended my first tour in Viet Name 3 times, each time for 6 months. That entitled me for a month leave anywhere in the world. For my first R & R in 1967 I chose a trip to Germany, just when the 6 Day War broke out in the Near East. The next two times I chose Salt Lake City, my home of Record, to with my mother.

Ze572. At the rear of the former Battery Randolph, now it is the front of the Army Museum in the Ft. Derussy are several pieces of military hardware. Here is a Japanese light tank description; it was captured on the Makin Atoll in 1943. They remind me of capture of Corregidor Island by the Japanese; they used tanks and even had an American tank. The American Paratroopers used the 105 mm field guns to liberate Corregidor from the Japanese.
