Another day, another village. 

The outskirts of Dong Ha.  Much better road

Harry winning the hearts and minds of the local population.

Highway 9, the road to Khe Sanh. Definitely not tank country, B24 trailing truck, the road
was only about a foot wider than the tank.

The Elephant Grass came right up to the edge of the road. 
Great for an ambush.

The results of one such ambush.  "Pappy" Parsons looking for items to salvage.

But there isn't much you can get from a tank with this much damage.  Dong Ha, 1967.
