My crew was tasked to pick up the USAF Police killed in the Helo. I was 20 years old and had hauled supplies in support all day. We land at NKP early AM but was unaware of what we where to pick up. I remember seeing the loader coming down the ramp and was my first KIA's. What a sad morning. It's hard to loose friends something I've had to do more than I want to think of. I want to thank all of you seems end of a war no gratitude but I have thought of that day many times.

I'm 61 years old do not have much time. I live well after my hich with the Marine Corp the best thing to have happen to myself. I was with H&SCo 106iplt, i've been looking for you all. At last I've found you. I was at Utapao air base during the Mayaguez incident. Would like to talk, have some pitcures.

/** Great talking to you James. It is hard to believe 40 years have passed. Glad you found the Koh Tang Mayaguez Veterans Organization and that we were able to assist you in finding one of your Marine Corps friends.

And the final portion:

Let me reiterate that I deeply appreciate all the interest expressed in visiting our museum for the 40th anniversary. My invitation stands. Our temporary exhibit on the 100-year history of the aircraft carrier – entitled “Taking the Seas: Rise of the American Aircraft Carrier” – has been extended to July 19. Please contact me if you should have any questions or concerns. I look forward to the 40th anniversary. Take care.

3. It would be an honor to meet with any veterans from the Mayaguez Incident / Battle of Koh Tang who decide to visit our museum. All are welcome. It would also be my great privilege to provide a tour of our facility to those of you who make the trek. Please let me know ahead of time if you expect a sizable group, so I can properly accommodate.

4. Please do not try to retrieve objects you donated to other museums in order to donate them to us. It places that museum and us in a very awkward position. Moreover, military museums may prove to be a more suitable repository for your materials.

5. We evaluate all artifact donations to ensure they meet our mission and to ensure we can properly preserve them. Storage space is limited. Accepted donations consist of a transfer of ownership of the materials to us with no strings attached. We do not guarantee exhibit of items donated. When you visit a museum, what you see on display represents just a fraction of that institution’s collection. Like most museums, our mission focuses on collecting, preserving, and interpreting historic materials for future generations, not just exhibiting.
