Comments: I served aboard the USS Monmouth County,LST-1032 from September 1966 thru October 1967. We carried supplies, equipment, and munitions up and down the rivers to U.S. bases. Modified GQ was always a way of life, but nothing was ever more fearful than the trip in a typhoon through the Straights of Tiawan, November 1966. We battled 60 foot waves for 48 hours straight, with a tank deck full of howitzser misfires. God was in the wheelhouse. That storm put 23 major cracks in the main deck and 1 major stress crack in the hull. Keeping the "bow into the wave" is the only thing that saved us from capsizing. The steersmen did a great job--"THANKS"!

Keywords: MeKong Delta River area and Siagon River.
I was an engineman. Friends called me "WAGS"
Best friend on board was Dan Nix. Served with him 4yrs.
I remember Spitzmiller,Phillips,Handi,Hart,Eastman,and Collier as the shipmates who were my base buddies.
