I found a website that has Military grid to Google map overlays. It's really easy to use.

map grid LZ Kathleen.jpg

This image is of LZ Kathleen. You can see the military grid destination YT0506991 (lower number in lower right hand corner.)
The red cross in the middle of the photo is the 'Center' of the location. The upper number is the location based on the position
of the cursor.

Here's a link to the website:  http://www.mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4.php?tilt=off&mgrs=14SPG34308382&z=5&t=t1
When you open the link you will see a map of the US with a grid overlay. Just use your mouse to move across by left clicking and
holding the image to move across to Vietnam. Then reduce the size by clicking on the small 'minus' sign on the upper left side of the
To change to the 'Google satellite' map, click on the drop box in the upper right that says "T1 Terrain" and change it to "h - Ariel Google Hybrid"
that will give you a satellite map with the roads, cities etc etc. The DOL (daily officers logs) on our website gives you most of the locations we were in
so it's kind neat to be able to see what the areas look like today! I have also included a list of LZ's and FSB's below to help you get started.

This is what the large view of the map of Vietnam looks like before changing to the Google Ariel map (notice the grid layout designators).
