LIBERTY HILL and LIBERTY BRIDGE
Liberty Hill was a Marine Combat Base about half way between Da Nang and An Hoa, in the middle of the Arizona Territory.
It was a hot, dusty, hostile and very dangerous place to be.

Liberty Hill Convoy
Road from Da Nang to An Hoa M60 machine gun mounted on some of the trucks Traveling southwest Through the Arizona Territory
Hot and dusty Truckers haul beans, bullets and Band-aids One of the river crossings Guard tower delivery
A Marine outpost along the way Liberty Bridge, after latest rocket attack When the bridge is out... you wait for the pontoon ferry,
Load four trucks w/trailers at a time, and cross the Thu Bon river Seabees bridge repair Marine tankers on standby
Unloading the ferry Liberty Hill overlooks the river crossing The Hill is the home of artillery and grunt units. Always busy
Looking at the river from the top of the hill. Tanks along the river stirring up dust. Enemy spotted, fire for effect. The Arizona is home to many VC and NVA.
Pounding... and pounding Charlie. Moving on to An Hoa Liberty Hill from the west.
