|Yes, it looks like a state penitentary. This was LBJ, or the Long Binh Jail. There was crime committed by troops
while in Vietnam. Fragging (throwing grenades at Officers or NCOs), drugs, AWOLs (absent-without-leave),
assaults, rape and even murder. There were 199 murdered troops during the war.
Over 500 prisoners were housed here (during 1971) with 100 MPs on guard during the day and 48 on night shift.
The longest stay was about 6 months until they were shipped back to the prison at Leavenworth. Some were there
just weeks and returned to their units after being reformed. Pat Liszkiewicz, left, was with the 284th MPs who
had responsibility for the prison. These LBJ pics are courtesy of Pat Liszkiewicz..
