Description
 
Cecil Barr Currey. The infamous horror stories of the U.S. mil. prison at Long Binh, S. Vietnam, made it so feared that American soldiers preferred to face the Viet Cong rather than be sent there. This overcrowded penitentiary confined soldiers whose offenses ran the gamut from drug possession, insubordination, & AWOL, to assault, rape, & murder. In 1968, racial tensions there erupted into one of the worst prison riots in American penal history. When prisoners violently seized control of the compound, armed American troops struck back with tear gas, eventually bringing an end to the bloody insurrection. Critics pointed to it as yet another indication of the sagging morale of U.S. forces. Here is the story of Long Binh Jail through the words of former guards, prisoners, & admin.
