18th Bde.
        Camp Dillard was located by Di Linh on Highway QL-20 in the Central Highlands, midway between Bao Loc and Da Lat. Its elevation is approximately 850 meters above sea level. The distance from Long Binh to Bao Loc was approximately 100 miles and an average run took four and-a-half hours each way. The route included just about every type of roadway condition and geographic variation in South Vietnam.
        In 1971 Camp Dillard was home to elements of the 815th Engineer Battalion (construction), 159th Engineer Group. The camp was named for MG John A. B. Dillard, USARV Engineer and senior Army engineer in Vietnam, who was killed in action when his helicopter was shot down 15 April 1970 near Plieku.
     As of this posting (10 January 2006) it is unknown when the convoys to the camp started, or finished. The 815th Engineers departed Vietnam, 30 January 1972.
