I tried contacting him via EMail that was listed sometime ago on another website but never got a response. As the years pass it becomes harder to remain in contact with past shipmates. I keep trying though. After over 50 years I'm still in contact with Plank Owners from the JRP.

Thanks David I can start with when I received orders to Vietnam, came in as orders to Vietnamese language  school. Called the detailer and asked how i got selected.  He told me I had aced my language battery when I joined the navy.  My reply to him that was Spanish one to ten, tell me what Texas boy cannot count one to ten in Spanish. Vietnam 67-68 caught Tet in 68.
