I spent 45 days on PI. We unloaded the boat and then had to re-load it. Got word that two Army officers were murdered in the DMZ in Korea. Then, somebody changed their mind and we unloaded it AGAIN. Really enjoyed that place (lol) and also got to do a amphib landing near Brisbane, AU. USS Point Defiance. All got shore leave after that so we headed to Sydney and partied our butts off. Hade the Enterprise as our flagship, and the Aussies woudn't let her dock because she was a nuke.
'51 in Subic had to be something else! And thank you too for your service Sir!
