I have just found this website. I haven't had the opportunity to see it all, but what I've seen looks great.
I served as a Combat Medic with the, 60th Land Clearing Company, 62nd Engineer Battalion (Land Clearing).
My tour was between from April 1971 through March 1972.
When in the "cut" (the field whacking down trees with bull doziers) we would normally hit about 20 or so land mines and/or other types of explosive devices ranging from anti-personnel mines to 155mm Arty shells some with fuses, some manually detonated and some detonated from elsewhere.

VETERANS 1970, CAMP RATCLIFF, ANH KHE, VIETNAM
If you served in Vietnam in 1970, and were stationed at Camp Ratcliff, Anh Khe, the night 16 helicopters and 1 hooch full of GI's were blown up, please contact email@example.com
A freelance private investigation is getting under way to find out how and why the V.C. got inside the camp, and then out again so easily and undetected. If you remember, the aerial flares (pop up canister type) were removed from the guard towers and bunkers all around the perimeter just a few days before the attack; and the searchlight on top of Hong Kong Mountain wasn't used for some mysterious reason that deadly night.
It's only speculation at this time but there are 2 distinct scenarios that fit one eye witness's account of that night in Anh Khe:
(1.) The chain of command could have had previous knowledge of the pending attack and allowed it to take place in order to gain support for a Tet Offensive buildup.
(2.) The chain of command were taken by surprise by the attack and blotched it so badly that it was necessary to conceal their blunder by falsifying reports and by discharging GIs who apparently knew too much.
If you received an early out of Vietnam, under AR-212 around that time, your testimony is pertinent to this investigation. You may have information that exposes a cover up committed by the US. Army.
I was the one who found the location where the V.C. exited the wire and left the perimeter of the camp; to my knowledge, no V.C. kills were reported. I was soon 212ed out of the service for having a behavioral disorder (active/aggressive personality disorder). However, up until the time of the Anh Khe attack I had no prior mental health issues.
Rodney Lee Mitchell Jr. - code named: Tripper, 124th Signal Battalion. Co. C.
**** In 1974 there was a mysterious fire that destroyed all the military records of Vietnam and those who served there.
Over 400,000 veterans who received "less than honorable" discharges between 1964 and 1973, may be eligible to have them upgraded to Honorable. Even on an Honorable discharge, a "Spin Code" (SPN - Separation Program Number) can hurt a veteran's chance of being hired by a prospective employer. These spin codes were put on DD 214 (discharge papers) from the 1940's through the early 1970's. Veterans can request a new DD 214 with the spin codes removed (e.g. AR-635-212 SPN 264).
