Served on board LCU1499 ( I really did--I was the cook) from Aug 68 to 69. Now that I think back it was good duty in comparison to the guys in the bush. We would pick up supplies in Danang and bring them up or down the coast, then up river to deliver our load and back again. We had fresh food, a place to sleep and a shower and head. What more could a person ask for. While I was there I took many photos and movies too. Many thanks to Kent for a great site.

Great site, sure brings back alot uf memories. I came onboard in Feb. 69 to Feb. 70. I worked mostly in the engine shop. I stood picket boat watch on the MIC boats and when we started using the BostonWhaler. I stood ood and SP after making EN2. I also made a couple of runs up the Vinh Te canal on the LCVP with D. W. Hunt. We hit a booby trap of barbed wire on the last one, and had to be towed back to the base camp by two PBR's. Afew mortar rounds went over us but missed by a country mile. When we got to the base camp we took turns swimmi9ng under the boat to cut the wire out of the proop and the strut. Just what you want to have happen with less than two weeks left to go. We sure knew how to party back then. Hey where are all you Engineman? Hard to believe were all in our fifties now.

Good Site. Just browsing and came upon it. I came in country at the first of Jun 68. Fighting was still going on in Cholon. Lived in the Ky Son Annex just off Tran Hung Dao St. near the Metropole. Assigned to the VN Naval Shipyard relieving EMC James Cook. Outside of a few rocket and mortar attacks it was a good year. If I lived in the boonies, I might have other thoughts on the subject. Flew down to Vung Tau for a week and numerous trips to Long Binh, Ben Hoa and Nha Be. Several of us would cruise down the Saigon River on newly built Yabuta Junks,making sure they worked. The first time I saw VN was in Jan/Feb from the Deck of USS O'Bannon (DD-450). In 1970 while aboard the Fleet tug "Moctobi" we towed a YTB from Subic to Vung Tau, and then towed a Water barge from Danang to Subic. In 75 I was aboard HB Wilson (DDG-7) off Vung Tau for the evacuations and also under fire from the NVA (No Hits!). 15 May saw us off Koh Tang Is., Cambodia, (Mayaguez), picking Air Force and Marines out of the water, after their Helo had been shot down. Spent the rest of the day giving gunfire support to the Marines trying to get off the Island. The next day loaded with about a hundred Marines, we headed for Subic Bay. The last time I saw Vietnam was in 99 flying from Malaysia to Hong Kong. You have a great site here. I have written a book for my daughters, about my Navy career, with my one year in country, being the longest chapter.

I got another assignment until Feb '71 flying out of Quan Loi about 100 miles north of Bien Hoa. I returned to the Delta in Feb '71 assigned to Binh Thuy with an AO in southern Cambodia.

Remember "Rocket Alley", "The Four Corners", "Route 66"? Toured the Mekong Delta remembering My Tho, Tre Cu,and I think Tuey Nahn.

Just returned from Gamewarded Reunion in San Diego. I met friends I have not seen since I was in Vietnam. It was great to attend the dedication of Swift boat 104. It's great to be getting together after all these years. It seems like yesterday we patroled those muddy rivers and canals.

Enjoyed the net. Even after all these years you never forget Vietnam and your life on the boats. I served on ASPB #1 in Riv Ron 13 and Riv Ron 15, until turnover to the SV Navy in December of 1970. Finished my tour as an Advisor in Danang for the most part leaving in April 1972.

Gentlemen, My name is Mark Nolan. When I was 15, in January, 1969, my brother Michael was killed in Nha Be, Vietman. He was a proud member of the Seabees. He was also my hero. I admired his ability to play the drums and his athletic prowess as a track and field and football star. He was a very fine young man, as anyone who knew him will attest. I guess the reason I'm writing this is to point out two things: 1 - Not a day goes by that I don't think of Mike. 2 - I'm proud of every man and woman who served in Vietnam, and just want you people to know it. Know also, that there are many Americans today who feel the same. Thank you for reading these words in honor of my oldest brother Mike. Sincerely, Mark Nolan
