    I was on the Vancouver as a member of 3rd Plt A Co. 5Th Engineers attached to 3rd Blt 26th Marines in the fall of '66; It was a nice ship...better than the Valley Forge, which we were on also...brought back a flood of memories. -Submitted by: Daniel Miller [MOPH90@cox.net] 2010-03-18

    This is a nice picture of the flight deck port side of USS Vancouver LPD 2. As member of 1st Battalion 9th Marines, I flew off this ship on Operation Deckhouse V in January of '67. We were the first round eyes in the Mekong Delta in over 20 years. Vancouver was a nice ship...airconditioned and comfortable. The keel was laid in 1960 so it was really a new ship for that period of time. It was launched in '62 and decomissioned in '92...kind of sad that it only served 30 years. Kind of like myself...30 years -Submitted by: HMCM Robert Syler, USN-RET [mcpotex@earthlink.net] '64-'94
