Firebase Fuller. I have been there as a grunt and as a hook crew member.
I use to drop off a bag of ice cold beer to a friend still on Fuller when ever I knew we were going there.
How did I keep it ice cold...Put them in the big silver ice water jug on the ship!
He would run out everytime he saw a hook coming to see if it was my beer wagon coming in lol
