45 years, It doesn't seem possible. Hope all is well with everyone. I sure hate the fact that we had to cancel the reunion this year. I hope that we can all work to make next years reunion the best we have ever had. God bless all of you and continue to pray for our country and our military.

This has been such a weird spring that this anniversary has snuck up on me. Another year and still moving forward. Hope you have stayed healthy thru all of this. Semper Fi my fellow Marines Sgt. Larry Branson

It's almost 15 May in Kohtang.
I said it a few years ago here, I was aboard USS Midway with VMAQ-2. We knew what happened.
I'll never forget the evening these Marines came ashore at Yokuska. I knew you were heartbroken. My spirit was crushed for you. But one of you saw me standing aside while you passed. You must have known what I was feeling for you. You gave me a nod. You knew I loved you all. From this Winger, know you have never been forgotten, especially your brothers who didn't return home.
God bless you all.

Served on the USS Coral Sea CVA 43 during this event I was nothing much more in a punk kid, but I knew some of the guys that went over and didn't come back. Thanks for a great website.

May 15, 1975 to May 15, 2020... 45 Years after this top secret operation most of my former shipmates are suffering from PTSD. To date, I know of (5) people including myself which are 100% Disabled directly due to PTSD. I would like to see the Navy Awards board correct their records and award the USS Henry B. Wilson DDG-7 (All Personal Onboard) the Combat Action Ribbon (CAR) for Operations Eagle Pull and SS Mayaquez Rescue/Recovery. I have a CDS-17 Award Citation/Commendation that clearly states we were in “Combat Operations” during these historic Navy events. There have been ships awarded the CAR for doing far less. My prayers go out to all of the men we lost that day. GOD BLESS Us and the USA!! — CWO4/LT (LDO) Ret.

Really sad to see the 2020 reunion is cancelled. This would have been my first one. Was looking forward to being there. All the hotels in Vegas are shut down so there is really no choice than to reschedule. But hope to be there in 2021. If anyone is wondering what the Coast Guard was doing there we were flying our C-130 daily out of Cubi Pt/Subic Bay searching for boat people from about April 25, 1975 to about May 30, 1975. The Navy directed us to get airborne in the middle of the night/early morning of May 15, 1975, and orbit half way between the USS Coral Sea and Koh Tang and fly cover for helos from the Coral Sea. We had radar coverage, air to air TACAN, and UHF/VHF/HF/RTTY comms with the Coral Sea and their helos. All returned safely.
