Last Known Activity
On 27 February, two enemy 122-mm rounds slammed into the MAVSUPPACT, Danang covered storage area causing extensive damage, including wounds sustained by 13 Navy men. More rockets were lobbed at the Danang bridge loading ramp (BT 035 762) during a rocket barrage on the 27th, destroying LCU 1500 and YFU 78. LCU 1500 received a direct hit by a rocket of unknown size. Ammunition on the LCU was detonated and an explosion occurred with fire spreading to the nearby YFU. Another craft, LCU 1614, sustained minor damage by shrapnel. Total U. S. Navy personnel casualties were reported at 21 Navy men killed and 38 wounded. 

We were good friends
He was, a good friend and worked, under me. We bunked, beside each other, in the barracks. Their isn't, a day goes by, where, I don't think, of him. All he could, ever talk about, was his family, back, in Topeka, his father, mother and sisters. We would even share letters, from home, once, in a while. We had many laughs, together and shared many stories, from home. I have some pictures, of him and a page, that I got, off the internet, of him. He was, a great person and paid, the altimate price, for our freedom.
