Largest Vietnam Source List I’ve Ever Seen. JP & SGT Suds ( PATCO )

> I had three tours in Viet Nam. So far I have not been able to connect
with any of the activities I was involved with. Oh well. I will keep
looking and pass this site along to interested vets and others looking
for info on the war.

For info: My first tour (May ’64 – Jul ’65) was with the Military Sea
Transport Service as MSTS Liaison Officer Southeast Asia, based in Saigon.
My second and third tours were with Commander Amphibious Squadron One. On
two deployments in 1966 and 1967 we were involved with putting Marines
ashore in various locations in Viet Nam, including the first American
operation in IV Corps in early 1967. The Commodore liked to brag it was
the first US riverine operation since the Civil War.
