There is still a big job ahead to find housing for all of the displaced people from the Gulf Coast. While in Viet Nam the USAF was experimenting with a double walled rubberized storage building in several sizes. The one we used for food storage was about 50 feet wide by close to 100 feet long. It could be inflated on site and air conditioned. Was fitted with partitions. A complete home in less than an hour. Ideal home for four and could be cool replacement to the standard army canvas tent and tent city. Anyone got any idea what happened to these units?
How do we get this info in to the chain of command?
Any repairs were made with duck tape. Actually withstood mortar attacks at Bien Thuy. Just think about a row of 100 or so along eaither side of a vacant airstrip (paved street) and you have a new city.
