They called the area off Viet Nam in the war zone Yankee Station as in the military alphabet. I was on a stores ship then and it was coming up for replenishment.

last year I went on some destroyers at the Portland fleet week, what a difference from the old WW2 tubs I was on! The Procyon was originally the Flying Scud built in 1943 and turned into a supply ship in '61. As an electrician it was a nightmare, a DC ship with a lots of problems but we got the job done and kept the fleet fed.

Jason, hubby says, "You must be a lifer!" He was SK3, discharged in 1963, 3 days after Kennedy was assassinated.

We had some sayings..... "Things will be heaven, in '67 "
"Things will be great in '68"
"Things will be fine in '69"

I don't know what the guys getting out in '70 said. You might say "Things will be keen ,in eighteen."
