[PART 1] I opened this box of chocolates and couldn't believe the piece I found. Wow! George B. Nelson of Company 375. I remember your very long flowing dark hair before you went to the butcher shop. I arrived on board the USS CORAL SEA late November 1974 after 2 west pac cruises on board USS RANGER. Assigned to operations department in weather(OA Division). Jim Bruck there too. If I recall I saw you last the day I got out when I went to personnel to get paperwork. I still remember the look of envy on your face. I recall May 15, 1975. I was working night shift and was awakened that afternoon ahead of schedule. I went to the 09 level and took my camera with me. Dusk was closing in but still very visible. I took and still have picture of large bomb that struck the island.

The Associated Press - Today in History: "1975 - U.S. forces invaded the Cambodian island of Koh Tang and captured the American merchant ship Mayaguez, which had been seized by the Khmer Rouge. (All 39 crew member had already been released by Cambodia; some 40 U.S. servicemen were killed in the operation.)

From the NTA to Thailand and beyond. I'm thinking of all that are here, that we lost during the operation and that we have lost since to time. Semper Fi to all Marines, Navy and Air Force.
Thank you for your service. We will all meet on the other side of Freedom someday.

If my calculations are correct, taking into consideration the 13 hour time difference and the International Date Line, 1903 EST today 5/14, is exactly 0603 5/15 on Koh Tang, exactly 42 years ago when the first helicopters went in. Please raise a toast with me and say a prayer for our brothers. Semper FI

The Associated Press - Today in History: "1975 - The White House announced the new Cambodian government had seized an American merchant ship, the Mayaguez, in international waters. (U.S. Marines gained control of the ship three days after its seizure, not knowing the 39 civilian crew members had been released by Cambodia.)" Semper Fi! Edd
