General Note / OCR

Buffalo Hunter (drone) photo of the DAO area at Tan Son Nhut. April 1975. The 'DAO Building' is the former HQ MACV building. My office was about midway on the east side. It had been the office of the MACV Chief of Staff. In the building on the north edge of the tennis court were the living quarters for Gen. Murray, and later Gen. Smith. At the center of the right edge of the photo are the trailers occupied by senior staff. The Command Mess - off the photo - was immediately east of the row of trailers. The gymnasium, where we processed Vietnamese for flights to the US during the final evacuation was in the lower right corner of the photo.
