Americal AO Map Including Kham Duc

The below map shows Kham Duc in relation to the rest of the Americal Division's Area of Operations. To locate Kham Duc, find Chu Lai, on the coast (right side of the map), and follow the 270-degree radial of the Chu Lai VORTAC (navigation radio) west to the left of the map. Kham Duc is circled just above the 270 radial line and is about 17 nautical miles from the Vietnam-Laos border. The border is the brown line at the edge of the map to the southwest of Kham Duc.
