Where did you serve and what did you do?
Served aboard LST-1166, USS Washtenaw County, while she was attached to multiple Brown Water Navy riverine task forces from 1968 to 1969 in and around South Vietnam.
How are you #StillServing?
I started volunteering at the Vietnam Unit Memorial Monument in 2001, and continue volunteering to help build and maintain this memorial to all USN and Coast Guard sailors we lost to the Vietnam War. The VUMM is located aboard the Coronado Amphibious Base on Coronado Island in San Diego, California.
Why do you do it?
In addition to honoring our fallen sailors, camaraderie with like-minded work party volunteers.
