360° Panoramic Photo of the Former Location
of the 543rd Transportation Company
Thu Duc, Vietnam
With the help of Minh, whose father had worked at one of the civilian trucking companies that flanked the OK Corral, I was able to home in on the former location of the 543rd Transportation Company with a pretty fair degree of accuracy. I also was able to triangulate on the Thu Duc Water Treatment Plant tower up the road and the water storage tank over in Thu Duc village. Both of them are still standing, and I think that I was able to get within 25 yards of my former location. Thanks also to Minh's brother-in-law, who drove us around in that black SUV. Without his help finding this location would have been almost impossible.
