It's been 46 years since this Historical "Top Secret" Operation... After 24 hours of Firefights, 154 rounds of 5" 54 HE, and 60,000 Rounds of .50 cal.- The USS Henry B. Wilson (DDG-7) and crew have never been recognized or awarded the Combat Action Ribbon (CAR) for their heroic efforts in Combat on MAY 15, 1975. Your Koh Tang organization has the ability to sponsor a request to Congress to have this finally corrected before we all die off. The Combat Action Ribbon was awarded to 51 ships who participated in the Gulf War however; no ships to my knowledge ever had to fire a single round or were actually in harm's way. Why has the USS Henry B. Wilson (DDG-7) Ship and Crew been forgotten? We were actually in Combat! Many of us who there on May 15, 1975 suffer from long-term effects of PTSD. Time to get this fixed!
Respectfully - CWO4 (OPS TECH)/LT (Surface Ops) LDO. I was an Operations Specialist Three (OS3) on May 15, 1975 and OS1 Tom Noble was my Leading Petty Officer (LPO).

Does anyone know if L/Cpl Ashton Loney used the nickname "Michael"? I went through ITS at Camp Pendleton from Oct-Nov 1974, and was on working parties with a Loney, who I'm sure said his name was Michael. I was with 1/4 during Frequent Wind, and when he was listed as KIA on Koh Tang, we all assumed it was the Loney we knew.

Thank you for your service and message Mr. Miller it was not the same gentleman.

My Brother Stephen Gutierrez was one of the last Marines that was rescued that day. He just passed on Oct 7th he was 65. He rarely spoke of what happened. He was extremely troubled and affected by this all his days. If anyone who knew him would like to share a memory with me I would be forever grateful. My family and I Thank All who have served.
Sincerely and Respectfully
David Gutierrez

The Board has been meeting trying to figure what to do with the reunion amid the Covid-19 situation. President Tom Noble posted this to the web site:
All, The KTMV board held a virtual meeting tonight. The major topic of discussion was our next reunion. As everyone knows planning anything is a challenge. The current plan is to meet again on Jan 27 to try to analyze any options that we may have Please continue to check the web site for additional information Additionally we will attempt to notify everyone by email in the near future with any information that we have.

On Jan 27th we hope to decide on a future date. The current consensus is the May of 2021 will be too soon for the vaccine to be widely distributed and keep our members safe to travel and gather in a large group, and travel together in a motor coach on our day trip.

You would be well advised not to be purchasing Airline tickets, booking motel rooms, or sending in Kohtang registrations until firm plans are in place.

We debated between October of 2021 or to be safe, May of 2022. We hope to nail down a date in January and inform the membership of the decision.
We thank you for your understanding and patience thru this and pray for your safety.
Semper Fi Fred
