Not Valid After August 30, 1967.” The Air Force, in February 1966, requested authority from the Secretary of Defense to make a separate contract with a U.S. firm for construction of an air base. Air Force officers detailed the scope of work but did not identify the site at meetings with potential contractors. The agreement they proposed to use was a “turnkey” contract whereby the contractor assumed responsibility for shipping and logistic requirements as well as for design and construction. On April 21st, after being directed to reconsider the situation by the joint Chiefs, General Westmoreland concluded that an additional airfield could be used. The preferred site was at Hue, but because this site was unavailable he recommended to Admiral Sharp that work start at Tuy Hoa. This scrip note was for use by the Turnkey contractors at the Tuy Hoa air field in Vietnam. Security-Columbian BNC. This is the only specimen available from this series out of 3 found 8 years ago.
