Firebase Bastogne Vietnam tour

Firebase Bastogne - named after the Battle of Bastogne in WW2 - is located along
Route 547, halfway between Hue city and the A Shau Valley, established in March 1968 by the 1st Brigade, 101st Airborne Division. It was an important fortified base of the Screaming Eagles to block the stratigic Route 547 linking Hue with the A Shau valley, and to provide fire support for the search and destroy operations in the A Shau Valley.
Firebase Bastogne was the largest firebase in the A Shau Valley, which
had four artillery batteries: 105, 155, 175 and 8 inch. It also had 2 twin 40-MM "Dusters.
Bastogne was attacked and abandoned in the East Offensive in April 1972.

Firebase Bastogne was the largest firebase in the A Shau Valley, which had four artillery batteries: 105, 155, 175 and 8 inch. It also had 2 twin 40-MM "Dusters.
Bastogne was attacked and abandoned in the East Offensive in April 1972.
Today Bastogne has been turned over to farmland and housing, but  
we still uncover plenty of military trashes on the ground; sandbags, jungle fatigues, jungle boots, bullet casings and much more. And although the base area is partly cultivated, there are also clear traces of paved helipad and other installations. 
We can also combine with brief visits to
firebase Birmingham and
Checkmate along the way.
Bastogne is about 30 km north-west of Hue city. We should use Hue as the base for this tour.
