Message Mike: C 2/1 was on the Darby and the trip at around 12,000 miles is about

as far as you can go on the surface of the earth.<br>I think I remember your

name. Which platoon were you in?<br>There is a website just for C

Company veterans at charliegruntsdotcom (I don't think this page will take

the link).<br>Most of the guys there are from later in the war, but you might

start a trend by joining up and posting.<br>Welcome home.

Name Mike Halpin Location Long Island, NY

Message I was one of the &quot;boat people&quot; who landed in Vung Tau with C

2/1 in 1966. I can't remember whether I was on the Darby or the Patch. Fr.

G was on the other ship if that can help someone figure it out for me. A

professor at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy on Long Island told me

that our troop movement was the longest troop movement in nautical miles

in U.S. Merchant Marine history.
