Served in NSA Danang from May 67-May 68. Served on APL30 for 3 months working supplying the food for the boat that went to Dong Ha and Chu Lai and probably other places. Sent the rest of my tour working in Civic Action. I was at Camp Tien Sha for several months and after that worked in various areas of Danang. I worked at a Vietnamese amputee hospital, the civilian Danang Medical and Surgical hospital as well as in various villages and hamlets in the Danang area. I finished my tour at warehouse outside of the Danang Airbase supplying civilian agencies .

The YR-70 had to be towed in order to move any where the only power was the generator that powered the lights and machine shop, engine repair, electric shop and the weld shop. All of the repair crew that worked nights sleep on the top compartment, witch was built while I was there. We had a small boat repair shop tied up next to us. This picture shows the YR-70 up for auction after being decommissioned.
