I was a crew member on board the USS Coral Sea CVA 43 at the time of the Mayaquez incident. I too recall those days as if it were yesterday and would appreciate knowing when and where your next reunion will be held. Thank you

well I think we should get close to the wall. the reason is that it has been 40 years since we lost 41 of our brothers and would honor them if we visit them on the 40th ann. but that is my opinion

Well gentleman we unfortunately have not had any input regarding where our next reunion should be held. I know many of you are full of ideas and are just afraid to come forward and that's ok.
So I have taken the ball and our next reunion will be somewhere in Gulf Shores, AL, or somewhere between Pensacola and Destin Florida. I will keep the organization posted on dates, activities ect. Should anyone have any great ideas or suggestions I will gladly consider them and we may just incorporate them. And suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thank you
David Fowler

Hi guys,

I had the opportunity to read The Last Battle a few years ago and find it to be the most poignant and desperately sad account of any military operation I have ever read.

I lived as a dependent near U-Tapao from 1973 to 1974, joined the Marines in 1985 and later became a U.S. merchant marine chief engineer. Coincidence and irony have therefore given me the opportunity to get some perspective on many aspects of this little piece of our history.

I have ordered every other book on this topic I can find on Amazon and look forward to learning more. Thank you for your dedication to keeping this story alive.

Semper Fi, Brothers!
I was a member of 3/9 and arrived at Camp Schwaab in November, 1975. Still recall running past a 2/9 formation and feeling total respect and awe for what you experienced. Thank you!

One question though...Why were there not USMC rotors, 53's and 46's, involved in this operation? I always assumed that it was because of the Saigon evac., but not sure.

** Kevin, you are correct, it was because of the Saigon evac.. The USMC rotors were thousands of miles away. **
Thank you for your serve as well and for leaving a message in our Guest Book.
