Fire Support Base Hill 4-11 and Area of Operations for the 3rd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment
This photograph was provided by Louis H. Bohn who served with Delta Battery, 6th Battalion, 11th Artillery on FSB Hill 4-11 during 1969-1970.
FSB Hill 4-11 was located on a small hill about 7 miles west of Quang Ngai City, Vietnam. This fire support base was fighting home of the 3rd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment, 11th LIB, Americal Division from July 1969 to October 1971. If you served on FSB Hill 4-11 in any capacity or were assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment anytime during the Vietnam War and would like to contribute maps, pictures, poems, or stories for the future content of this Web site, please email the webmaster at webm...@hill4-11.org.
Nui Tron Mountain (OP1) in 2004
This picture was provided by Kelly McFarlane, daughter of Glen McFarlane, during her tour of Vietnam in December 2004. Click the picture above to see her slideshow of the Nui Tron Mountain area and Quang Ngai City.
Note: This picture is of Nui Tron Mountain where OP1 was established. Previously, this geographical location was thought to be where FSB Hill 4-11 was located. However, Che Trung Hieu, a VC, has written to explain that this is Nui Tron Mountain. At the base of the mountain the VC built a memorial to commemorate their victory at the Battle of Ba Gia where they defeated elements of the 51st ARVN Regiment during the spring of 1965. The results of this battle was a turning point for the U.S. to send thousands of our troops to Vietnam. In other words, the war was escalated by the U.S. because of the poor performance by the ARVN. You can email Che Trung Hieu at chet...@vnn.vn if you would like further clarification about the location of the VC Memorial and Nui Tron Mountain.
