History[edit]

Vietnam War[edit]

During the Vietnam War, Long Binh Post was a major U.S. Army base, logistics center, and major command headquarters for United States Army Vietnam (USARV).

2000s and 2010s[edit]

The area Long Binh, Bien Hoa, originally occupied by the Long Binh post is as of 2008 largely given over to industrial use, known as Long Binh Techno Park, and a shopping complex that includes a large western-style Cora supermarket. When it opens, Line 1 of the HCMC Metro will have its terminus at Long Binh, District 9, Ho Chi Minh City; work commenced in February 2008 on the Long Binh depot.[1]
