HICKORY RADIO RELAY
Located on Hill 950 adjacent to the old Khe Sahn Combat Base
www.macvsog.cc/hickory_fire_support.htm

Hill 950 or Hickory Hill (formerly named Lemmon Tree) was located north of the abandoned Khe Sanh Combat Base. It was CCN's radio relay outpost atop of hill 950 to monitor and relay radio transmissions from SOG teams operations in Laos. It was the final allied presence in the northwest South Vietnam after the siege of Khe Sanh during the summer of 1968 until it was finally abandoned on June 5, 1971 when it was over-run by enemy forces. Jon Cavaiani was the Security Force Commander that faithful day putting up a fierce counter defense for two days. Jon was captured and spent 1 year and 8 months as a POW and was later presented with the Congressional Medal of Honor
