I SERVED WITH THE 513TH FROM MAY 1966 TO DECEMBER 1967.
FIRST BASED IN DONG BA THING WHICH WAS ABOUT 20 KLICKS OUT NORTH OF CAM RAHN BAY. MOVED TO THE BOONIES OUTSIDE OF NHA TRANG IN AUGUST OF '66 THEN TO TUY HOA LATE THAT YEAR.
I SPENT THE REST OF MY TOUR JUST SOUTH OF QUI NHON AND DID A LOT OF WORK IN THE BONG SON AREA. WE HAD OUR FIRST KIA IN THIS AREA WHEN OUR CONVOY WAS AMBUSHED.
IN JULY OF '66 WE TOOK ABOUT 6 OF OUR DT'S ON A LCU OUT OF CAM RAHN UP TO A NEW PORT CALLED VUNG RO BAY. PRETTY HARRY AT THAT TIME.
LOOK FORWARD TO CHATTING WITH FORMER MEMBERS.
