Comments: While in Vung Tau, Republic of South Vietnam in Feb/Mar 1972, the Hector Foundry cast two 750 pound steel anchors for this ship. The other shops aboard hector also did quite a bit of repairs, upgrades and special work on this ship. One thing we did NOT do was get rid of a whole bunch of rats that were also aboard it. I am trying to find out if those two anchors are still on board the ship as well.

Comments: The 975 became the Vietnamese HQ-500. It was one of
the ships we maintained in the Naval Shipyard in
Saigon when I was there in 70-71. I posted a group of
photos taken in 1945 at the commissioning of LST 975
