Re: Viet Nam unit patches
Canberra was a Terrier ship with An/Spq-5 radars #1 and #2. Before that I was aboard the Farragut working on radar #5 and #6. After they retired those old fossils I moved over to the Truxtun and learned the AN/SPG-55. What a shock to not have to replace magnetron's and a bushel basket of tubes every week. Loved that radar but my department on that ship not so much. There were a lot of great people and a few that ruined it for everybody.
