Beginning in the air, on a flight to Vietnam, you'll see aerial shots of the coast, cities, and flooded fields. Travel in a truck convoy past rice paddies, farms and villages. In a coastal city you'll see a waterway crowded with sampans & junks, and women washing clothes on steps that lead down to the river. You'll see footage of the dredge Davison on the Cua Viet, zooming in on the crew and activity going on alongside. There's extensive footage of other traffic on the river, both civilian and military, and panning shots of the coast.
You'll see Cua Viet base camp, ships, boats and heavy equipment along the shore, and ROK soldiers unloading ammo from a landing craft. You'll visit Hue, see a PBR base at Tan My and a marketplace in Danang.
