I HOPE TO HEAR FROM OTHERS, AND POST ANY PICTURES AND STORIES I RECEIVE. ADR 3 LONNIE LEE.
fm email@example.com I was stationed at c.r.b. for
a short time in 68.
However somone I remember who was w/base personal was a fellow named Ben
Hayes, As I recall he was attached to the front gate as p.o. of the guard. I
believe he was po1 but not positive.I was with vp-22 home port Barbers Pt.
Hawaii. fm Barry Botsford CT3
I was a part of the NAF bunch from 7/68 to 7/69. Worked in maintenance
control. Outside of that
spent a lot of time with security bunch to pass the time. Worked for a CWO Bratch.(sp)
Do you have any photo's?
Like to hear from you.
Hay, you probably won't believe me, but I remember seeing you shortly
after you tangled with that trip
flare. You had been bandaged up pretty good, as I recall. Some nasty burns on your leg, hand or arm.
Check out attached picture. May take a little time to load. Will send some others.
Did you ever work on any Crazy Cat aircraft or 1st R&R planes?
I think some sand crabs did some
work on both squadrons aircraft. Don't think anybody worked on P3's that came in from PI. They didn't
stay around that long.
It's funny that there are plenty of photo's available on web about airforce
side of runway but little have I
seen on NAF side. There was a navy communication station down at the south end of the peninsula
which has web site. Found a real nice NAF Cam Rahn Bay embroidered patch on VP Navy site a
couple of days ago but haven't found out who makes them. May have been a special order for a
reunion or something. I still have NAF pin they gave out. Patch looks just like pin but is much larger.
You didn't, by chance, get in on fighting that fire north of NAF (fuel
bladders) started by rocket attack?
That happened early in summer of '68, I think. There is bound to be a million photo's out there of NAF.
Just a question of finding someone with them.
You mentioned going to village on civic action team. Wouldn't, by chance, been when we got palm
tree's to plant around front entrance tower?
Have a great weekend.
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Check out attached.
Also, I found a site with NAF Cam Rahn Bay patches, if you would be interested. They
are $ 8.00 each.
Don't know why combat action ribbon wasn't put on our papers.
Would be nice to find
out if we are entitled to wear
ribbon. We were paid combat pay and you like me spent many hours either in a tower
or walking the wire. Remember
sitting in fox hole in the rain, soaking wet for I don't know how long. Who was that 2nd
class PO who used to assign
watches? Intelligence reported possible sapper trouble that rainy nite. I think you were
in on it.
Am attaching another photo of perimeter tower on northwest corner of NAF. This is
tower I think you were talking about.
Dong Ba Tin would have been to the northwest or to the left of tower.
Feel free to contact me any time. Enjoy hearing from you. Maybe we can find an
answer to combat action ribbon question.

If you picked up any box lunches from the flight galley then you probably got
them from me. I also worked in the galley so I know you ate my chow. I do
have some pictures of people I worked with, but I forgot there full names.
The pictures are in storage. I just moved to Florida from Ohio. Where are
After Nam I was transferred to the Lexington out of Pensacola. I got out of
the Navy in 71 and then enlisted in the Coast Guard. I retired from the CG

This is RJ Hoff, formerly of Grand Island, Lonnie Lee. Now it is RJ Hoff of Ogallala
which is 185 miles west of Grand Island. The land of the big draught and some
great trout fishing. Or it was until the draught hit!
I sent you another email explaining all this stuff and how I had sent you an email
and didn't even realize it was you until I got home and was going through the
stuff I copied and found another posting by freddy1 and there was your name by
it. What a coincidence that was.
How in the heck are you?
I'm ok, the family's ok, the son is in the USAF so I'm not sure about him, the dogs
Sam and Doc are fine and my jeep is running good. The bills are paid, some food
in the fridge and they tell us it may rain next Monday. Hey, things couldn't be
I don't have email at home as I don't own a computer, but I have it here at work.
Since I'm the boss, I can send something whenever I want. Saves me money on
buying my own computer and that is money that can be well spent on another fly
rod or gas (gasp) for the vehicles.
Drop me a line here and let me know how you are.
Hello again. Went to your web site
and love it. first i should tell
you that my name is Bill Griffin, ABH-2 Retired USN.. Retired 100% service
connected (for a heart condition)Iam currently living in Santa Barbara,
Calif. I only did 8 years before the heart conditon. I joined the navy
in 1965 was sent to Beeville,Texas as an AA and joined the Crash Crew there
for the next two years. Left there and went to Sangley Pt. PI. and drove
Crash Trucks there for 1 1/2 Yrs. and ABHAN there. Left there in Jan. 1969
went to San Diego SEAR school, Than to Cam Rahn Bay in 28 Feb 1969 to 20
Oct. 1970 advanced to ABH-3 while in SEAR training in San Diego. While at
Cam Rahn Bay , I drove the station Fire truck for the first 9 months there.
Than they turned it over to the Vietnamese. I than went to the line
fueling the P-3s I hated it had to drive at night. Made ABH-2 and no more
driving fuel trucks.. went to workfor the special programs and worked at the
Vietnamese Naval Training Center , CDR Stewart, was my boss at the time.
The base clubs were in full swing. The theatre was alway full and while i
was there I seen M A S H, first run, watched it twice that night. The only
movie ever to play twice in the same night. OH well , I have an alblum of
pictures. Really some good shot of the base, these pictures were taken over
a span of time some much earlier than my arrival, but most of them were
taken in 69 - 70 . Lonnie if you like write me and give me your address so
i can send you these pictures. Or I'll try and get them on my scanner, they
seem to blow up really big. Iam new at this thats why I haven't done it.
The picture alblum has about 50 pages. Really good. Maybe we can get them
all in here as Bills scrap book, I also have a few snap shot of me and my
fire truck. Well good luck to all. Anyone would like to write please do
so. Bill Griffin, ABH-2 retired
