You'll see "Tent City" at Tay Ninh Base Camp, watch a game of volleyball, see the chowline and soldiers cleaning their mess kits, see pet dogs and a monkey, the interior of a 5-hole outhouse, perimeter bunkers and traffic outside the camp. The guys ham it up for the camera, putting on a show in front of a guy in a Director's chair. You'll see airstrikes near the camp, a UH-1 leaving Tay Ninh, Vietnamese women digging a ditch in camp and sweeping out a newly built hootch, and Vietnamese shoe-shine women working in hootch area. There's also footage of a huge deep well with soldiers swimming in it and climbing in and out with a rope, aerial views of the countryside and Black Virgin Mountain (Nui Ba Den), and views inside the cameraman's hootch.
