Hamburger Hill

Hamburger Hill

Stumbling across this tiny scrap of rusted barbwire as we descended down the side of Hamburger Hill was probably the moment that made the biggest impression on me. Today my Vietnamese tour guide and I, with digital cameras dangling from our shoulders, were free to hike up and down the mountain as we pleased. We stopped frequently so that he could take a cigarette break and I could rehydrate myself with a bottle of mineral water, and the only thing we had to worry about was making it back down to the car before darkness fell. But this small coil of tangled barbwire was a stark reminder of what actually took place here almost 50 years ago.
