Welcome to the Best Un-Official Homepage of the Tan Son Nhut, Air Base, 377th Combat Security Police Squadron, Republic of Vietnam. This site is dedicated to all the brave men and women that served on the installation from 1961-1973.

This squadron's homepage is a family friendly location, as is all our related pages. Pull up one of our comfortable dayroom chairs, sit down, lean back and raise your feet up, (keep an eye out for Top, though) and stay awhile. Enjoy yourselves, have a drink and some of the free snacks, being supplied by the USO. Talk with the other security policemen and get to know some of them personally and listen to the stories they have to tell. Enjoy the laughter, and in some cases, of their sorrow of the security policemen and canine working dogs, who did not make it home.

What you will observe on our site is Air Force and Vietnam related. Especially pertaining to Tan Son Nhut Air Base. We will do the best that we can, to make your time here a pleasant one. This site was begun out of love and respect for our fellow countrymen, all of our military personnel (where-ever they may be serving), and done out of a sense of duty and pride.

Also take the time to look at our links pages. Each link on this site is appropriate for family and friends. It has been checked by our personnel and we have concluded that only those links we feel are of the highest quality are presented. We sincerely hope you enjoy it here.

At last count our site was 83 pages in length, so take your time and enjoy your visit. Don't mind the way the place looks now, we are in the process of having a GI party and cleaning it all up.
