I DIDN'T PROMISE YOU A ROSE GARDEN

Recommended Posts

JUNE 20, 1972--VMA(AW)-533 with A-6A Intruders arrived at the remote jungle base of Nam Phong, known as the "Rose Garden," in the east central plains of Thailand in juxtaposition to the NVN attacks in the SVN highlands. Roads, aircraft parking and storage areas had been hacked out of the jungle by a joint USN/USMC engineering team in preparing this advance base. Between 23 May and 18 June the following Marine Corps units had arrived in preparation for operations against the invading NVN forces: Task Force Delta; VMGR-152, Det "D" with KC-130 Hercules; H&MS-36, Det "D" with CH-46 Sea Knights; VMFA-115 with F-4B Phantom IIs and VMFA-232 with F-4J Phantom IIs.
