Re: Brown Water Navy?
I saw from your posts yesterday that you are in Az. I am up in the mountains keeping to my self for the most part.
Brown Water Navy refers to the fact that all of the waterways in Nam are the color of human feces, therefore we were "sailing" on brown water. That made us different than the Blue Water sailors in Nam guarding the coastal waterways and off shore.
Mostly we got called River Rats. It is my understanding there aren't many of us left around these days. They almost got me, but I am too damn stubborn to go like that.
