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!,

Gentlemen,

Hello, I am an Army major and Iraq veteran. I am working on a master's degree in U.S history and recently stumbled upon the story of the Mayaguez and Koh Tang. I am planning on writing about the Battle of Koh Tang for my thesis project. I am interested in how the history of the end of Vietnam has been written, and believe that viewing it from your perspective as Koh Tang veterans could change the way people think about it. I've collected a good number of books on the Mayaguez Incident and found some articles from over the years but would love any recommendations on where else to look for information. Also, the chance to meet any of you would be great as well. I am stationed in the DC area now if anyone is close by. I am very impressed by both your service and your commitment to each other through this group and look forward to learning more about both.

respectfully,

Major Mike Hunter
U.S. Army, historian in training
