    Well ,just want to say, I was on USS Boxer when we went there. That is the old rust bucket Boxer. That is Da Nang Harbor. I was there. Worked in V-1 the flight deck. That was Marble Mountain.The Tripoli was built as an LPH. The Boxer was a converted CVA straight deck carrier . Which is what is in that picture. Just thought I would add my 2 cents. Was a very important time of my life. Thanks and God bless all that never came home! -Submitted by: Dan Garcia [flyfan@wi.rr.com] 2010-01-20

    Sorry, but the above comment is not correct. I took this picture, but I wasn't in Vietnam in 1966 and the name Boxer doesn't ring a bell. This picture would have to have been taken between January 1968 and February 1969 (my tour), most probably in the summer of 1968. We deployed on the Tripoli that summer to Cubi Point, however I can't actually say that its the Tripoli in this picture, as we bounced around quite a bit. ---Fred Pratt -Submitted by: Fred Pratt [fred@bizteam-cc.com] 2006-05-04
