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.
