What Were You Doing in 1965?

USS General J. C. Breckinridge (AP-176)


I was taking a boat ride!

In June to August of 1965 LBJ decided to put 50,000 troops into Vietnam and I was available. After all this time I am a little fuzzy on details but we might have arrived in June.

Just happened across this picture a little while ago of my 'cruise ship' for my trip from Oakland to Pearl Harbor and Yokohama and finally Cam Ranh Bay.
