The site of a famed 1968 siege, Khe Sanh Combat Base was an American base that saw one of the bloodiest battles of the war, though it was never overrun. Nearly 10,000 Vietnamese and 500 Americans died here from napalm, artillery rounds, mortars, and phosphorus shells. Today, the site is peaceful and home to a small museum, displaying some photos, reconstructed bunkers, and aircraft.
