    March, 1972- Kobe, Japan, USS Tripoli -
    From: AL HALSETH

    1972, USS TRIPOLI / LPH-10, Kobe, Japan .

    Were you onboard the USS TRIPOLI / LPH-10, March 11,1972 thru March 20,1972 , while the TRIPOLI was at KOBE, Japan.
    If you were please call or write or E-mail me.
    I was hit by a taxi cab. In Kobe,Japan during the daylight. (They drive on the wrong side of the road) And have had AMNISIA up until 2003 because of that. And know I only have BRAIN DAMAGE !! ONLY!! I have had a V.A. claim for the past 3 years. I have 7 or 8 letters from people that remember it happening, but , I need a letter from some of the people that saw it happen or the Marines that helped me back to the ship. And letters from the Marines and sailors that knew me after it happened. I was flown off the ship in April, May or June 1972 (I donít know for sure) . And went to the Hospital in Subic Bay ( Cubi Point ). Then was sent to Fatema, Okinawa. Then sent to Treasure Island, San Francisco, Calif., and discharged.
    At Treasure Island they told me that they were going to give me a Medical Discharge. (Iíd only heard of a Honorable discharge and a Dishonorable discharge). So I asked if I qualified for a Honorable discharge, and he said ,ďyesĒ! And I said I wanted a Honorable Discharge. Thatís what I got.
    My Brain was broken, I didnít know that I should have gotten a Medical dischargeÖ
    The Squadrons of helicopters that were onboard was HMM-165, HML-367, HMH-463, VMO-06. I think I have the HMH and VMO numbers right. We had Huey's, Cobera's, 46's, 53's, and OV-10's.
    But, I was the only one that was hit by a taxi !!!
    Please contact me . If you call, Iíll get your phone number and CALL YOU BACK SO YOU WONĒT HAVE A BIG PHONE CALL BILL.
    I was in Flight Equipment shop, Paraloft, Squadron Barber shop.
    I was CPL. (E-4) AL (tim) HALSETH. From Minnesota, Wisconsin .
