I put her out of commission. I sailed her from Vietnam to Subic Bay then on to Guam where she was sold to the the Indonesesion Navy. Lots of stories about that trip. My Askari Plaque still hangs in my den.

Tom I have a cruse book from the 66 to 68 pierod talking about recommision of the ship to some of the boats that we had in Viet Nam Also that A fram you see on th o1 level is the movie theater that we had in Nam up river we would show movies in there at night our soda machine was there and a pop corn Popper we set a booth up for the movies camers and had a little theather up there. Did you know that we had canavs awnings al the way around the ship with wooden pallet on the deck to keep you out of water when it rained and the ship was painted green. Brings back a lot of membors so good so not so good like tet 68.

Served Sept,'67 -- June,'68 as a QM-3, USNR, on Krishna (ARL-38), including during Tet, at An Thoi, Phu Quoc Island, IV Corps. Now work as a Hollywood-based screenwriter. Revisted Krishna, then in Philippine Navy, at Manila Bay, in 1980, while on location. Would enjoy talking with other Krishna and ARL sailors.

Message to DAVID A. JONES: I remember seeing St.Clair Co. Nice hole you put in ship! I was engineer ("snipe";) on LCVP from Askari to shuttle back & forth to Westchester Co after mining incident. I think I might have old photos that may show St. Clair Co. in background. I'll look & let you know at this site if I do.

Never thought I'd have fond memories of serving on the Askari. Served in "A"Div ('68-'69) -spent many hours on watch in Engineroom, Evaporator flat & goofing off in aft steering. Spent some time as engineer on boats, too.
