Served first tour in country at NSAD Qui-Nhon 69-70 repairing swift boats,served a second tour with Naval Advisory Group in Cat-Lai 71-72 with ARVN RAG.
That photo of the Annapolis hotel brought back memories of the first days in country.
Record 382 Spent short time on YFR 890, from October, 67 hauling supplies and ammunition up and down from Saigon to Dong Tam, Sadec, all the way down to Binh Thuy and back. Left the boat in late January to go to NSA, Cholon Compound, just in time for Tet offensive of 68. Did two tours and returned unscathed in May of 69. Thanks to all who served honorably, thanks to the PBR guys for pulling our butts out of trouble more than once. Will never forget sitting in the Mekong river for 12 hours, having run aground, for the tide to come in, so we could continue. Like sitting on a lit powder keg.
Great website. Keep up the good work. God Bless all.

I felt bad about bieng there with all the others on the limb ward. anyway, I voluntered for a second tour when I recovered. yrbm-17 dong-tam was my next duty station. worked on river boats, water pumps, ramp gaskets for mike boats. Was the original eager-beaver firefighter on the navy base. Helped set up thousands of cambidoian refugees in dong tam at the old 9th div army base. If David Casman, Kieth tyler, Nick Nagel, frenchy,bear,or anybody else want to talk. E-mail me. I have some old photos of yrbm-17 crew
