The rear gate of the 25th ID, Cu Chi Base Camp was nick-named the Ann Margaret Gate ... I'm sure due to the 2 LARGE mounds located just outside the wire. That's where you did your 'gut check' on night ambush patrols ... anything past those mounds was 'No Mans Land'.
Ann Margaret was a beloved lady to the 25th Inf.Div. Grunts. I think she must have arrived with Bob Hope prior to Chistmas '67... that was the year Raquel came to dance with wild abandon in her short, short knit mini-skirt. I've still got the 8x10 glossy to prove it.
None of us will ever forget that day. God Bless them all, and the USO, for caring enough to show up.
