These two playful little kids lived inside the Montagnard Special Forces camp at Plateau Gi, north of Pleiku.  We often ran resupply sorties into Plateau Gi, carrying mostly food.  The camp itself was pretty grim - a heavily fortified triangular wall, surrounded by a punji stake moat and then a wide mine field.  There were two American advisors staioned here and they welcomed visits from us aviation types.
