What a Long Strange Trip . . .

When the 27th Surg was closed, most of the staff went across town to the 91st. but, as usual, I was behind the door when the orders were passed out and I was shipped off to TuyHoa. I hitched a ride on an LOH down south and was dumped off on the PSP. I then got ride on a passing jeep which took me to the 8th field hospital in TuyHoa. When I arrived, the facility was essentially empty with only a small staff to close up the facility . They suggested I head back up to DaNang and get another duty assignment. So, I spent the night and then got a lift to the PSP again and hitched a ride on another chopper and waundered about country via LZ English, Hawk Hill, QuangTri, DaNang, and finally back to ChuLai ... it was a very confusing adventure and I'm not sure the exact order ... I simply went where ever the transport would take me.
