Con Thien Firebase information

Only one bunker remains of the US Marine Corps base that used to cover the three small hills here. In September 1967 Con Thien was besieged by the NVA, provoking a US response of 4000 bombing sorties. Today the region (though cleared of mines) is still studded with unexploded ordnance – stick to the paths. Con Thien Firebase is 15km west of Hwy 1 and 8km south of Truong Son National Cemetery.
