Map Scans from a 1968 Map of Vietnam

Richard Rooker provides these six section scans of a 1968 Vietnam (entire Southeast Asis) map. Some of the locations shown on this map no longer appear on maps of Vietnam because they were either destroyed, moved or underwent a name change during or following the War.

Richard graduated from University of Illinois as an engineer in 1969. He was drafted and went directly to Fort Leonard Wood for a year and then to Vietnam. He served with the 1st Cavalry Division Headquarters in Phuoc Vinh as a draftsman where he drew maps of troop movements for battle plans and courier for those plans to the fire bases.

The map sections include:


Northeast showing map title and data

Northwest and Laos

Southeast showing map data

South and some Cambodia

Southwest Cambodia and some Thailand
