Memories For This Unit

Other Memories
Haines' Navy Commendation Medal citation reads:
For heroic service from 12 February to 7 March 1967 in connection with operations against the enemy while serving the U.S. Naval Mobile Construction Battalion FOUR, in the Republic of Vietnam. During this period, Chief Petty Officer Haines commanded four convoys, which were carrying material and equipment from Danang for the resurfacing of a combat-essential airfield at An Hoa. All convoys were required to travel over twenty miles of frequently mined roads and to pass through territory infested with enemy forces. Although aware that other vehicles had encountered mines and that friendly forces had come under enemy fire, Chief Petty Officer Haines volunteered and was selected to command these convoys, in addition to his normal duties as transportation manager for the battalion. Due to his outstanding leadership, extreme devotion to duty, and courageous spirit, each convoy was completed in a timely manner, enabling the construction project to be completed ahead of schedule. Chief Petty Officer Haines' initiative, heroic service, and intrepid leadership reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Naval Service.
