about stories from Vietnam, so here's just one. But i'll let the skipper tell it. Lt Fred Mangol, the best skipper, and the best ship, in Amphibious Forces. I just found several videos of interviews he did, but this one was from II Corp.

I can't remember when it was, so many years ago, but this may have been the time a Russian sub surfaced off our starboard side and watched us for awhile, and taking pictures of us. They just waved and submerged.

Most of the guys were fresh out of boot camp, but they grew up very quickly. Our crew was awarded Top Gun. We were referred to as McHale's Navy at times, but we did our job.
