Dan McKegney Dan McKegney sent this photograph to the TSNA.

Following TET '68, there was a flurry of activity on Tan Son Nhut to fill sandbags.

The former priority of base beautification gave way in favor of devoting resources to safety.

I took the attached picture while on sandbag detail.

As I recall, the cameraman and soundman / interviewer were from the BBC.
