Just outside the east gate to LZ Baldy. CAC, in
"winning the hearts and minds" of the locals, built this church for them to use. Was unusually far from the "center" of the vill. Amazingly turned out to be a favorite for local snipers to practice from. All the "decorations" to the church were made by "D" Company personnel. This Church was just outside our section of the "wire". 1968.
