I was a Medic at NKP, Thailand when the Mayaguez was captured. I also was at the crash site of the Air Force helicopter that was SHOT down at the beginning of the Mission and am very angry the DoD and Dept. of the Air Force continue to refer to that downed chopper as a "mechanical malfunction." I saw the hole in the armor plate from the Jolly Green and it was from the outside in, not the inside out. Is there anyone out there, Air Force, who was also at the "crash" site in Thailand??

Hey Larry Branson!, wow, it is truly wonderful to hear back from you. It was a great time to be in the Marines back then, memories I treasure to this day. I still have a photo of us eating pizza when we were in I believe was either Tokyo or the Phillipines. I am now happily married and serving in God's Army.
We will be in Glendale, AZ. the weekend of June 10 & 11, 2017, for the Harvest America Crusade being held at the University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday night at 7pm. If you are close by maybe we can meet for a couple of hours, either that Sat or Sun, please let me know, my email is: takingittothestreets7@gmail.com
God Bless you my brother!!

In this mornings Tulsa World newspaper I found this interesting tid-bit in the AP's Today in History column: "1975 - President Gerald Ford formally declared an end to the 'Vietnam era.' In Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) the Viet Cong celebrated its takeover." At that time, little did we realize what history had in store for us in five days time. I can imagine that most of you feel pretty much the same as I do this time of the year. It seems like every year it gets just a little more difficult to cope with the feelings. Stay strong, Brothers! Semper Fi! Edd Prothro

42 years ago we steamed away from Vietnam, supposedly to a more peaceful time. Little did we know what lay ahead. My thoughts to all!

Hey George just read your message about seeing my truck at the casino. Your the first one who's ever responded about my truck.Maybe my mission to get the forgotten battle out there by advertising it on my truck is gonna work. We're gonna be there again on Saturday early if you have time to shake my hand. I was on the coral sea also. Email me if you want. Thanks for responding.

Mr Hunter I am one of the survivors of the Mayaguez incident and had my truck wrapped to symbolize my story. It's amazing how people don't even know about it. It is my mission to let people know who are interested just what The Forgotten Battle is.Let's make a movie like they did for The Maersk ship that was pirated.They think that ship was the last pirated ship in over 200 years. Wrong!,
