July 14, 2006 - BEAR & DAN,
   AS I HAD WRITTEN BEFORE TO SOME OF LTG DUSSAULTS FRIENDS, I MET HIM IN THE LATTER PART OF APRIL 68.  HE REPLACED LTG GALLAGER AS OIC AT MST--3. I BELIEVED I TOOK HIM OUT ON A WHALER OP FOR TRAINING PURPOSES.  I ONLY KNEW HIM FOR ABOUT TWO WEEKS BECAUSE WE ROTATED BACK TO CONUS AND THEN I WAS ASSIGNED TO THE LLSC DEVELOPMENT PROJECT AT GRAFTON BOAT COMPANY IN IL.

RICK SHEPARD AND I TOOK THE FIRST TWO LSSC"S INTO CAN-THO IN THE LATTER PART OF 68. ALSO I RECALL THAT BSU-1 HAD THE FIRST SWIFT BOATS AT CORANADO,  IT WAS PCF-103 THAT WE USED AS A TRAINING PLATFORM FOR THE FIRST SWIFT CREWS TO GO TO VIETNAM.  I WAS PART OF THAT TRAINING TEAM PRIOR TO GOING TO THE SPOOK BASE IN DANANG ON THE PTF"S SOMETIME IN THE 66-67 TIME FRAME.

AFTER BEAR and I LEFT NHA-BE, MST-3 WAS MERGED INTO MST-2 AND ALL THE MST ASSETS BECAME UNIFIED UNDER ONE COMMAND AT CAN-THO.
