Bob Cutts ©Stars and StripesLong Binh, South Vietnam, October, 1968: A mechanic works amid an immense pile of wrecked and combat-destroyed armored personnel carriers and other vehicles as he searches for useful parts at the Long Binh Army Depot's salvage yard. The depot was the biggest in the world, and supplied about half of the entire U.S. Army force in Vietnam. "Over $600 million worth of supplies and parts — from washers to 20-ton cranes — are on hand in the depot's yards at Long Binh Post, the central supply yard for III and IV Corps," according to a 1968 story.
