I arrived at Camp Duc Hua in late July 1968 and we were using both cloth and nylon sandbags.  The structure in the background, to the left of the generator shed uses both types of sandbags.  In the foreground, I'm on the left and SGT Oka (Jr. Medic) and we're making trashcans using det cord.  I used a 30-second time fuse (give or take 15 seconds).
