USS Askari ARL-30 Guestbook




Comments:
The V.A. is requesting I verify my service on board. I served from August 1967 until February 1969. I was a boatswain mate and drove the LCVP. I was on the Army base at Don Tam numerous times and many other places on land. I am looking for help in providing the information to the V.A. proving this. Any help would be appreciated.

I was part of the recommissioning crew and onboard when we took Askari to Vietnam. I was the Engineering Log room Yeoman for most of my time onboard (1966-December 1967). Would very much like to hear from any of the crew that was with me during this time.

Very glad to see this web site is still up and running! It was created by my dad, Tom Willoughby, over 20 years ago. Keep in mind it was all trial and error back then. Pretty good for a guy born in 1930.
I've been sharing this site with my teen age kids and they have been reading the guestbook comments and learning quite a bit from real people. Please keep posting your thoughts and memories so your descendents learn too! As my dad has proven - you're never too old to learn.

12/66 to 12/67, assigned to deck division, transferred to Operations the spring of 67, passed the SM3 exam in June or July, while aboard. Was part of the deck crew that painted the beast green. Still remember a few names, even tho it's been over 50 years. Went to NWS Yorktown briefly, then NAS Norfolk to finish my 3 year minority enlistment.

I served on the ARL30 "Adjustable" back in 1969-70. She was a good ole gal with crew that worked hard and was put to bed wet. I look back with pride and no regrets.

Greetings Shipmates!

I’m an former submariner: 1976-1985. I am looking for any information on a crew member of yours who died in Vietnam on July 21, 1970 while assigned to the USS Askari (ARL-30). I believe he was perhaps a diver and his death was accidental. He is memorialized on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (the Wall) in Washington, DC on Panel 08W - Line 40. Any information on his untimely death would be greatly appreciated as his family is still wondering. Thank you all for your service and Godspeed!

Steve Dufort
