Does anyone from Qui Nhon '70/'71 remember the crazy little mascot dog that hung around the PBR dock. He was really wired. I believe his name was Binoctal.

Does anyone from Qui Nhon '71 remember the attack and subsequent fire Feb 15th at the International Shell Storage yard by LST beach?

Salvatore Potenzano his 458th tour was in 66-67.

      Salvatore P. Potenzano, 52, died Sept. 1 in Nathan Adelson Hospice.

      He was born Aug. 11, 1947, in New York. An Army veteran of the Vietnam War, he was a retired investment manager and a resident of Las Vegas.

      He is survived by his wife, Olga of Las Vegas; son, Dominick in south florida. He had a blood disorder contracted from agent orange. I do have plenty of pics of him and his crew on the boat. Would love to share. Just tell he how.

I am trying to track down info on the MP who died while assigned to Cat Lai late in 1969. There was an explosion on a night patrol that mortally wounded him.I'd appreciate any leads (name, home town, his MP unit number--anything at all.) We need to honor his dying as part of the 458th community. tjwons@me.com

Did anyone ever explore the cave on the island up river from Vung Ro Bay? It was a sheer rock tall narrowing water entrance, we thought charlie may have been storing stuff in it so we decided to take a look. No one wanted to get out of the boat and go into the entrance, but I just had to. Water was wadeable and rocky up to an entrance that turned left in to the cave. I was scared clueless to turn the corner and go in. So I put a bomb in first. Big shock, next thing tons of fruit bats pouring out ,shit flying all over, me face down in the water. The rest of the guys under the canvas on the PBR laughing their butts off. Sorry forgot my E-mail on first post. Just starting to get into remembering you guys and stuff. Became a Capt. in the 80's and owned Dive/Fishing/Diner/Booze cruise in Sarasota Fl called Sea Adventure. Now own www.thedomefleamarket.com

seems election ballots were counted twice at our last reunion, the 1st day and then at the meeting. I did notice a unsecured ballot box with blank ballots setting on one of the display tables the 1st day. I find the idea rather disgusting that the winners were known several days before the official count. I'm quite aware I'm a cranky old fart, but this kind of snafu make me wonder just where the hell this organization is headed. Well meaning and or harmless those involved in counting ballots before the meeting. should look in the mirror and ask themselves the question I'm asking. Are you a officer because you want to better the organization or for the bragging rights?

I was an MP at the 720th Long Binh Post Oct 68. Transferred to 458th Cat Lai early 69 around Tet, the day LB Post was attacked. I was the coxswain on J7803 until I returned to the states in October 69.

I have some very sad news to share with you. My brother, Bernie, passed away. His body was found in his apartment this afternoon. They think he had been dead about a week. His body is being cremated and a graveside memorial service is planned for sometime after Thanksgiving. His cremains will be interred next to his young son who died in 1978 at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Omaha. Bernie had a kind heart and beautiful soul. Thank you for being so good to him at the reunion. It meant the world to him, and to me.
Kindest regards,
Sue (Brown) Bigsby
