Photos From Dan Telarico
My name is Dan Telarico.  In February 1969, I arrived in Cam Rahn Bay.  After about a week, we were loaded on a C-130 bound for Saigon.  I was then attached to the 458th MPs in Cholon.  They asked me if I
would be interested in serving on PBRs, which I promptly turned down.  I was then assigned to the 551st Transportation Company at Long Binh.

Full Speed Ahead
I was a ship NCO on DD3.  We usually worked one month on days, then would switch to one month on nights.  The part I liked was the shift change.  We always had booz and steaks and, while we are on my favorite subject, food.  I was
especially fond of the ships, Margaret Lykes and the Alaskan Bear, for the food they served in their galleys.   Some of them were less than perfect, such as the Korean ships.  You could smell them coming up the river, even though you were up
wind from them.  I received the Army Commendation Medal and, I must admit, they never told me why.  What the heck, something to show the kids, although I don't think they really care.
