My wife never worries about me having a mistress because she knows that my mistress is Vietnam, and Vietnam fills me with exquisite joy, and sometimes Vietnam breaks my heart. But then, I guess that is what mistresses do.

The 2008 trip to Vietnam is now over.

Please write to me at any time during the trip or afterwards. I enjoy the contacts I make here.

My name is Henry Bechtold and I live now, as I have for most of my life, in Beautiful Bucks County, in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Just north of Philadelphia, along the Deleware River. I was in Vietnam from September of 1967 till September of 1968. Stationed at Long Binh, RSVN. Most of my time was with the 572nd trans company but I spent some time with the 10th trans, 534th trans and the 543rd trans which was at the OK Coral in Thu Duc. I returned to Vietnam in 1969, 2001, 2003, and most recently, in February and March of 2006. This site is about my trip in 2006. There are also some pages, in the links to the left, which will take you through my 2001 and 2003 trips and there you will find some photos and stories about my time in 1967 - 68.
