I was a Naval Operations Center
watchstander for River Division 552 in Tra Cu, Vietnam in 1969/70 - I
was only 18 at the time. Another lifetime ago. I was stationed in Tra Cu
for 9 months. I was transfered to support the PBR Mobile Base 2 in Tan
An for 2 months and then to Headquarters of operation Giant Slingshot in
Ben Luc for a month.

There has never been anything before or after my Vietnam experience that
will ever compare with the intensity of facing the enemy in frontline
combat. I have attempted to recreate that type of adrenaline flow by
doing some pretty crazy things. I've never come close to matching it.
Vietnam has placed an indelible mark upon my soul and it is most
difficult to erase.
The Vietnam war
impacted a generation. These are the stories and pictures of one
sailor's experiences in that war. Hopefully, along the way I'll
provide you information on the little known, yet valuable contributions
to the war effort by "The Brown Water Navy."
