    VP 1 and 28 did tours as did 45 from Jacksonville. Flying out of Cam Rahn my crew got grounded after having 165 flight hours in 15 days. Sent to Sangley point for Rest, LOL, woke up on the third morning and was on the way back to Cam Rahn that afternoon. Will look throuhg the old phots and see if I can find any at the base. I remember that the squadron we relieved was a tiger tail outfit and the day before we left, we got motared and one of their P3's took shrapnel in the tail. Had to stay an extra day while max effort was done to patch it up. Sorry for taking so long to get back, but dont do too may forums.
