I was on board the USS Wexford Cty 1168 from Feb 1965 to June 1966. We were in Vietnam in the following cities : Danang, Chu Lai, and Qui Nhon. We were assigned for over a year TAD to Yokosuka , Japan and made a trip to South Korea to the town of Pusan to pick up 6,000 Korean troops in the Tiger Division to take to Qui Nhon. We ran up the rivers , delivered equipment and men and were under fire at Chu Lai receiving hostile fire pay for 3 months after being struck by a shell at the 03 level, officers quarters, and radio ops.
