Last Known Activity

The following is taken from the U.S. Naval Forces, Vietnam Monthly Historical Summary; October 1969; River Patrol Force Summary:

On 4 October, five PBR’s of RIVDIV 572 under Patrol Officer LT Berry were participating in the first combined operation with local VN forces in the Breezy Cove AO acting as a blocking force for RF troops.  While proceeding north on a small unnamed canal which leads off the Song Ong Doc 24 miles southwest of Ca Mau (VR 852 033), the PBRs began receiving 75mm recoilless rifle and heavy automatic weapons fire.  One of the PBRs was knocked out of action in the kill zone and its crew was transferred to another boat which then cleared the area.  All units returned fire and then Broncos, and Seawolves placed strikes. One hundred troops were put ashore south of the contact area and swept northward.  Friendly casualties in the action were one USN killed and 11 wounded (2 seriously).  Enemy casualties were 7 VC killed by PBRs and 7 VC killed by Seawolves and Broncos. The damaged PBR was later recovered and towed out of the canal.

WWII , he servered In the Navy and was not drafted but Volunteered and was extended to the Dec 1945.

Some people you meet in your lifetime you never forget. George was one of those men. It was a pleasure to be a shipmate of his on the LST 1126.
