Chu Lai was the Americal Division Headquarters. We reported to Chu Lai, at the Combat Center, to be shipped to our units. Wayne, my brother, and I were held at the Combat Center for six weeks before I went to my Infantry unit and Wayne went to Korea. Mike and I first met at the Combat Center, and I got my rear job at the Combat Center before I departed for home. Bill Davenport was my replacement at the Combat Center, performing the duties of Shipping NCOIC.
