Fire Support Base Hill 88 (aka FSB Denise)

Hill 88, once a Marine Corp stronghold, was located between FSB Roy and FSB Los Banos off Highway 1. This was home to Delta 2/327 and the Kentucky National Guard (2/138) with their 155 SP’s in late ’68 and early ’69. Many successful sniper operations, ambushes, patrols and camaraderie were conducted from this location.

God Bless those NG’s, their movies and their guns!
