I think it was August or September of '71, a bunch of us from Echo Company 1/327th finally got sent to China Beach for seven days of rest. The first day was nice. Then a typhoon moved in from the sea. Waves broke across the finger of land making up the 'Beach. They rolled under the building popping floorboards. Winds hit over a hundred. The raised barracks started coming apart, parts of the roofs tore away and we started tearing the back side apart, using the wood to beef up the end taking all the wind. Another guy and I got hit by waves while looking for more wood. We ended up spending the night in a couple of huge trees which had their 'crotches between the big lower branches filled with sand. The wind switched and the guys stuck in the barracks's spent the night tearing out 'bracing' and moving it to the other end. The next morning the ground was under a foot or so of water and we waded to the remains of the Mess hall, also a raised building, for cold chow. The next few days weren't too bad. The water level dropped back down, they didn't make us fix anything and I think we were brought LLRPs, instead of c-rats, plus beer and [email protected]
