    This occured while we were pumping up USS Chevalier DD 805.
    A Bird Farm was on the portside so no chance to breakaway;

    One less LBGB (little bitty g___ boat) to haul ammo to charlie!!! We stopped one at Chu Lai that was filled to the max with small arms and explosives. Our CO gave it all to the ROK marines. I'm sure they used it to good effect.
