I broke out my old maps from 1965 -1966 time frame. In this map were about 15 clicks west of Da Nang, and just a couple clicks north.  I managed to scan one of the maps to show both our camp and Da Nang in a single scan. You'll see Da Nang in the upper right, and our camp in the upper left.  I believe this was the battery position.

Below the penciled-in B-1-12, you'll see a mountain highlighted in yellow.  I did that highlighting while we were there, and I'm pretty sure that was our mountain-top OP.  Just the FO team was there. 

Helicopter resupply, and only enough water to drink.  Took a bath in my helmet cover after a couple weeks.  We dug down about 4 feet, and put some logs on top.  Had a little cave in it to store C-rations.

Semper Fi!
