Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated.-- Sun Tzu
Poc Time7820 Reads
I don’t know if those of you that were in Viet Nam during the war remember the custom of poc time. If you remember, this will be a refresher. If you never heard of poc time, well it’s time you learn about this Vietnamese tradition. What follows are my observations based on my brief time in country.
I would imagine that the way poc time was observed varied from area to area. I only served at Bunard, so I can only relate to it as it was observed in my AO: the Don Luan District of Phouc Long Province in III Corps Tactical Zone. Your mileage may indeed vary.
