ex-USS Maricopa County, LST 938 in Saigon 9/2003
2852 of 2985
from  2004, Mobile Riverine Force Association  album
I took this photo in Saigon, 13 September 2003. Photo published in 'RIVER CURRENTS" volume 12, number 4, winter 2003. The ex-USS Maricopa County became the HQ 501 back in 1962. I remember the ship from my tour in 1970/71. It did not make it out to freedom at the close of the war and was captured by the communists. Ironically I have lived in Maricopa County for nearly 30 years. Phoenix is the county seat along with being the state capitol. I have this photo listed at NavSource Online: Amphibious Photo Archives. USS Maricopa County LST-938. If you google map Saigon you can still find this ship and another LST just north of the New Port Piers. I have an aerial of it somewhere in my album. Thanks for stopping by. Steve
