How do we find the free-market (black-market) rate?
Is it listed in the WSJ? I must have missed it?
Do they have a black market currency pit?
Turkey is selling Iran Gold, and depositing their own currency in exchange - the USD is very hard for Iran to obtain right now:)
I was assigned to the Vung Tau Army Airfield Security Platoon before I requested a transfer. I wound up in Bravo 1-61 1/5th mech Vietnam. It wasn't hard to find the money changers in Vung Tau. I don't know about Quang Tri having many of them, but I wouldn't be surprised. IMHO, just about any city where you could go off post when you were off duty had them in South Vietnam.
