China Beach the Cast
Who remembers China Beach the TV drama series?
It surfed the airwaves from 1988 to 1991 and dramatized the life of US Army nurses at an evacuation hospital during the Vietnam War.Â I loved it and was so disappointed when they stopped airing it.Â Â I need to see if it is available in DVD but, I guess the show's opening theme song will have to suffice me for now:
Here is a little tidbit for the next time you play Trival Pursuit or are looking for an Asian beach destination:
1.Â China Beach is located on the South China Sea near DaNang and was given it's name by US military who used it for a little R&R during the Vietnam War.
2. China Beach is now considered one of the top ten luxury beaches in the world.Â (Forbes)
3. China Beach's actual name is: My Khe Beach (locals loathe foreigners when they refer to it as "China Beach")
