Comments: Believe it or not I punched in Sea Float and up your page popped. Great pictures of my old stomping grounds. My Dad was an Air Farce FAC flying Birdogs at Rach Gia in 67-68 callsign "Bart" The 3rd time I was shot down was just a couple of miles southeast of there. I'll ask dad if he's familiar with the airplane propeller over door in one of your pictures. I refueled, rearmed and got snacks on a boat like yours when we were working in Cambodia 5/70. In the early fall of 70 while flying an OH6A Loach I landed at a BW Navy bunch of boats rafted on the river/border north of Ha Tein. I picked up a Ltjg and we scouted for guys in what looked like 16 foot fiberglass Tri hulls. They had MGs mounted in the bows. We didn't find anything but had fun shooting the place up. The Lt had been wounded in a leg during a VC attack the night before. I later dropped him off at the SF camp at B43. I have pretty good maps if you would like to see about where Sea Float was near Nam Can. WAR WAGON 14 Aeroscout D Troop 3/5 Cavalry Vinh Long 5/70-5/71

Comments: Great site. Hope you don't mind a note from an ex Air Force type who served in Saigon Oct 69- Oct 70. Your efforts were greatly appreciated by those of us who served there. By the way Plantation Road was beaucoup bad. You were lucky to escape with your wallet from that place. Great photos, will visit again.

Comments: I was a plank owner AO2 with VAL-4. Stationed in Vung Tau and Bien Tui. Was with the original group in Vung Tau and left in May 70. Flew back seat every once and a while in the "Black Ponies"and had the forward machine gun position at the end of our position near the fuel bladders.Lt.Com. Butterfield was our commanderand Warren officer Mason. Remember the big sign we had "Go Navy,beat Army".I am a missionary now in Bolivia and my kids think about Vietnam like we thought about the First World War.
Really enjoyed looking over your site. Will have to return often. Have been trying to write a book on my tour which was spent at Long Xuyen in July of 1968, then August and September at Vinh Long, then Binh Thuy Air Base, Also spent some time at the President Hotel in Saigon and would like to get more information about that place as well as see photos of it. Even though I was in the air force there, I managed to meet and work with great people who were in all branches of the armed forces, USA and allied. Thanks for your great displays of Vietnam artifacts.

I was stationed in DaNang,Vietnam with NavSupAct in 65-66 Assigned to PB-16. Our voice call was Kennelworth and later changed to Negotiate. I would like for anyone that may recall PB-16 delivering an Air Force pilots body to the White Elephant landing in early to mid 1966,please contact me at e-mail add. I told myself I'd never forget his name, but for the life of me I just can't recall. I would love to hear from anyone from our boats. At the time I was an SM-2.
