This map depicts approximately 150 landing zones and firebases that were used in Northern I Corps South Vietnam during the war - see list below. The original map (without added locations) is a Joint Operations Graphic (Air) Map printed by the DMA in September of 1983. The map shows roughly the area from the DMZ down to almost DaNang.

Many of these locations will be familiar to those that served with the 101 st Airborne, the 1 st Cavalry, various Marine groups, and 1/5 Mech during the different years in Vietnam . I'm sure that many other groups served in this area, and I'd be glad to add them to this list. Not all of these locations were open and operational at the same time.

Ruong Ruong Valley
Khe Gia Bridge

This map would make an excellent addition to your Vietnam memorabilia or a great gift to someone who served in these areas. Review my EBay feedback comments on this map to see how pleased folks have been that have purchased co...... read more
