What does LZ stand for?

During the Vietnam War, LZ stood for Landing Zone. Within weeks or months many of those Landing Zones became firebases.

Firebases in Vietnam, were like towns in America, they were everywhere! It is recommended that you obtain the book: "WHERE WE WERE IN VIETNAM: A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO THE FIREBASES, MILITARY INSTALLATIONS, AND NAVAL VESSELS OF THE VIETNAM WAR 1945-1975" By Michael P. Kelley

Can you help me locate an instillation map for Landing Zone Sally that existed in 1968 in I Corps Vietnam?

Unless you know a man that was actually there; your best source will be: "Where We Were In Vietnam: A Comprehensive Guide To The Firebases, Military Installations And Naval Vessels Of The Vietnam War (1945-1975)" by Michael P. Kelley; 2002-ISBN 978-1555-7162-57 Be advised; that in South Vietnam...some Firebases were actually LZ's (Landing Zones) at one time and were frequently referred to as either firebases or LZ's. In another words, if someone were to say "LZ Action" or "LZ Blackhawk", those two were actually firebases...Firebase Action and Firebase Blackhawk (both were located in the Highlands). Blackhawk had a 175mm gun emplaced there, and Action had a battery of 105mm field pieces positioned within it's perimeter.

What is a hot LZ?

A hot lz is a military term for a landing zone (hence LZ) that is under heavy fire. It was used many times in Vietnam due to the constant in and out of helicopters. During a "hot" LZ, the landing zone was under too much fire for a helicopter to land, so the soldiers must jump out of the helicopter in stead of it landing. The helicopter never touches the ground for the purpose of getting in and out as fast as possible.
