My late brother, Richard, served aboard in 1970. I was an Army captain and visited him. I was invited to eat in the wardroom. When I asked if Rich could join us there was shock. I said if it was all the same I would eat below decks with my brother since I'd traveled from Da Nang to see him.
Getting there was an odessey. No one inSaigon would tell me where the ship was. It was "classified". How you could hide the location was beyond me. I solved the problem by calling the MACV Chaplain 's office. I hitched some help rides to Nha Be and spent the night with some SEAL classmates from the SF Qual course then a ride on aRVN Navy river boat.
It was great to see Rich and have a few beers on the barge. The Chiefs put me up for the night in the radio room where I almost froze.
Rich later came to Da Nang where we had a family reunion with our other brother, Tom, who came up from Chu Lai.
Interesting times. Rich passed away from pancreatic cancer almost 9 years ago.. I will check for picture I took aboard.
Regards,

I served from 07/14/70-06/11/71. I was an ENFN and stood watches in the AC Generator Room and watch on the famous #4 Ship's Service AC generator and its stack fires. We never did find the cause if I remember correctly. Went on to stay for a career and retired as a Senior Chief in 1989. I like to think Askari was my pivot point. I met Paul Bonser (the B-40 chest) and we spent a lot of time at the same schools and homeports.

I served with Riv Ron 13, March of '68 to 'March of 69. I went to ET school, with Don "Corky" Martin, who was from Texas and worked in your E.T. Shop. I washed out of E.T. school and reconnected with Corky, in March/April of 68, outside of Dong Tam. I've been trying to find him, ever since! Does anybody have contact info, or know what became of Corky?
