Mark 

the information you provided was great.  I must have miss read you article.  I was never in country or had boots in the ground in vietnam.  I was on three operations during  the periods from 1973 to 1975.  I guess i will have to wait on congress to pass the bills for blue  water sailors during the vitenam war.  There are couple 299 and 696.

glen

may you always have fair weather and calm winds
