This is a full collection (4 pages) of all bases (firebases, LZ’s, Air Force bases, Brown Water Navy, Medical and other locations of interest) from the Vietnam War between the years 1963 and 1975 as they are listed with the DOD.
There are two different links attached to this article:
For the first one, I would suggest clicking on the brackets to the right of the blue title bar just above the map for a full-page view. This will bring up the menu of locations on the left side…click the “545 more” line item and a full menu will drop down. Scroll down the list to view the available locations. When choosing (click on it) a base, the program will zoom in and point out its location. In addition, another drop-down menu will replace the list and offers readers more information in the way of pictures, articles and other interesting info about that particular location. The website is worthwhile and I highly recommend it! There is also an email address to inform the author of your visit. Enjoy!
Here’s the second link that shows many other locations and points of interest on a topographic map.
This video shows Khe Sanh and photos of other firebases:

I would appreciate, maps of rear bases & fireballs in the lll corps & lv corps. We flew our missions out of Camp Husky @ Xuan Loc. Our camp was small & had a staging area outside of Husky, I was there Nov. 70-71. I was with the 25th Div. We began to be reasigned, as the 25th Div. Was being sent back to Hawaii. It was after Lam Song 719 mission, after that in end of April I was reasigned to Long Bihn. Hope not to lengthy, Thanks for any help you can give.

link to poll doesn’t work. I am a Vietnam Vet and was stationed at Nha Be in 1969/70. How do I get my name on the map?
Thanks William…I’ll look into it and make corrections!

is there a way i can download the spreadsheet? i am looking for the location of FSB libby
On the Google map, in the red title bar (top left), click on the looking glass to search (it gives several results; maybe you can download the XLS once logged in – it might be shared, so you can put it on Drive).
In Ray’s Map room it is not listed.
As is so typical about claims of “complete, “anything and everything” lists about the Viet Nam War, there is little to nothing about the extensive involvement and prosecution of the war by the Blue Water Navy. There’s even less coverage about the U.S. Coast Guard. Typical, yet still very disappointing and even more disturbing.
Donnie, yes, I agree! I have left posts asking readers to help me with articles about those two categories and receive zero responses. If you have some input or can point me in the right direction to obtain articles like, please let me know and I’ll incorporate into this website.

Two great projects, different approaches, both worth your time! (would be interesting to see how they could be ‘merged’)
Here’s the direct link to the Google-map: (in case you missed the ‘enlarge’ button on the top right)
You talk about two links in your note but there is only one link listed (the 2nd one).

There are two links…the one you’re missing is on the map photo that will upload…goto the left side of the blue banner on top of the photo and click the “[ ]”. The second link is under the map and posted in red ink. / John

This information may benefit those applying for VA disability benefits. In very recent years, the VA has given greater consideration for the exposure to agent orange and the now long term detrimental effects. I encourage all that may have been denied in the past to apply again with this new perspective and consideration. It could lead to retroactive benefits back to the time of the original application and denial. LCDR William E Higgins JR, USN
