WHAT WE ARE DOING HERE
This project started on December 22, 2000 as
a conversation about the diminishing information available
to the interested family of veterans who served on the boats
of this era. Not only has the post-war Veteran chosen to
forget about their time in Vietnam, but, about the equipment
they worked with. Now the internet has opened the door to
information for Veterans, family members and patrol craft
enthusiasts and a resurgence of interest in these great
boats has taken place.
As we veterans get older it now, more than ever, seems
necessary that someone keep this little piece of history
alive, and it is from discussions just like this that the
concept of a Combatant Craft living museum was created. So
here we are a small core group willing to combine our
interests and talents to make it happen.
the fun because, its definitely not a Job,
its an Adventure.
