FLASHBACK - Vietnam Patrol Boat daily routine -1969-70

Reporting aboard the "Point Young" in March of 1969, there wasn't much time for settling in, we got underway on patrol and so begin the first day of a year long ride. Our primary purpose was boarding and searching all manner of small fishing junks and trawlers for contraband, weapons and any suspicious activity. Often boring with brief adrenalin hits involving trading bullets with the bad guys or firing missions to assist close land based Army or Navy units under siege.
