Where Bees Swarm

Review by Richard Ackermann

This is a fictitious novel about a tour of duty in Vietnam for Navy CEC Lieutenant Bill Dawson. Lieutenant Dawson is assigned to the 30th NCR headquart3r43ed in DaNang where his duties include monitoring construction as assigned to Mobile Construction Battalions in the l Corps Area. The story takes place during the 1960’s when MCB 6 was deployed at DaNang East. Even though there34 is only one minor reference to MCB 6 those of us from that deployment will recall the names of familiar places that he mentions in his story such as Red Beach, Freedom Hill, The White Elephant, Dog Patch and Monkey Mountain.
