This is a summary of a 10-hour special program on AFVN presented by
Station AM WEBY in Milton Florida in November 201 primarily through the
efforts of Harry Simons who was Marine Corps Sergeant with AFVN in 1967-69.
As part of his preparations for the program he traveled in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)
and was able to take some photos of the inside of the AFVN Main Station.
