Looking for any photographs taken USS Dubuque on 20 -21 October 1968.
I remember a helo flying toward the beach, monitoring progress of a
whale boat" sent ashore with 14 North Vietnamese Navy prisoners.
Our location was approximately 114 miles North of the DMZ, about 5 miles off shore.
Remember seeing an observation tower close to the shore line.
I took several rolls of film, didn't send them home for processing right away and they were stolen from my valpac in Okinawa during my rotation home.
There were several high ranking officers abord the Dubuque at the time.
I thought the helo flying from our ship was a CH-34.
My men had the task of guarding the prisoners while onboard ship.
