HMM-265 on Tripoli 1967
I have this picture stored away.I can't forget that voyage. I joined 265 when they were leaving Phu Bai going to the Tripoli. I arrived in Phu Bai just in time to catch the last bird out for the ship. Had only been in country about 18 hours and was leaving already. Toward the end of our time on the Tripoli we were sent to the Philipines for repairs to the ship. The day we were leaving Subic Bay was the day the USS Forrestal caught on Fire. We were told that we were going to her aid but then cancelled because there were more than enough already there.
This is our crew! I'm the tall guy in the back row directly under the R. WOW! What a great bunch of guys! Great memories here! -Submitted by: Don Schultz [doSchultz@mac.com] 2007-10-03
