This tape was recorded by John Dudzik Dec 14, 1969 in the Naval Operation
Center Tra Cu Vietnam. It is a little hard to understand. It records a fire
fight in which "Lancing Delta engage a san pan and Delta 1 was hit with a b40
rocket and was on the beach a burning. I only uploaded part of the tape since
it takes forever to download on the net. The part I didn't upload records the
men who got blown overboard being found. As I recall the story went that he
was wistling the star spangled banner in the middle of the dark river and thats
how he got found. They claimed you could hear it on the tape but I could never
pick it out.
This is a picture of the boat after it burned curtusey of Ernest Stwert.
