My Father served on ARL 32 USS Bellona from Its Maiden Voyage until It sunk off of Iwo Jima in July or August 1945 All hands made it to shore and were put to work on Iwo Jima, until they were transfered to other ships. His name and and Rank are Henry(Harry,Smitty)Smith From Phila Pa.I believe He was a First class Shipfitter. Later he was Transfered to the Aircraft Carrier Cv-36 Assign To Damage Control If any of his old shipmates should read this it would be nice to hear from you.

I was on Askari from 1/69 to 1/70. I left her as an EN3. I was with the inside engine shop and worked mainly with transmissions. I stood BID patrol on the Mike 6. My most memorable time was in Sasabo while in dry dock. I'm looking for another engineman by the name of Wilkens. A short stocky guy. I don't remember the exact spelling. He was shot in the face with a 12 gauge while on watch. I have quite a few pictures from my time on board

I am looking for a friend of mine that was on the Askari in 68/69; Corky Martin, ETR3. He was from Texas, but I don't know where in Texas. I went to ET school with him, and then hung out with him in the Mekong Delta, when I was with River Assault Squadron 13. Can anyone give me help in locating him?

Really enjoyed the visit. I served on Askari 67-69 (extended tour) in the engine repair shop. I don't think about it much anymore, but when I do it feels good and I always smile. Thanks for the memories

I was aboard the USS Luzerne County (LST-902) Jan 1968 to Jan 1969. The best way you will probably remember this ship is with the mine attack on the USS Westchester County (LST-1167) in 1968. We were in Vung Tau at the time and were ordered to the location of the mining and take all necessary equipment on board to replace the 1167's replenishment duties. I can remember the reefers we set up on the main deck along with other equipments taken aboard. The 902 resupplied the Askari and the other two Riverine Support ARL's for three weeks until another LST from the same squadron as the 1167 was able to continue the resupply requirements. This was a memorable time in that it seemed the duty was 24 hours around the clock. I was the Chief Snipe and was involved in every part of the operation for that three week period. If anyone remembers this please feel free to send me any memories you may have. Lt. Don Brower ,at that time
