Khe Sanh Site

Not much is left of the old site, except lots of propaganda. Most people on the tours take it with a grain of salt. No sense getting upset about it. There's some plane and helicopter wreckage outside of the main building but beside that not much else. I'm still glad I visited the site. On my last trip the road was washed out and we couldn't get here. There's still lots of unexploded ordinance in this area too and with over 30,000 people killed since 1975 by leftover munitions it's a real concern. Second only to the Agent Orange problem. You can still witness the deforestation out along Hwy #9.
