The picture is from the our Westpac cruise book.  It was taken in December, 1967 during a joint operation with the green berets near the Cambodian border in which we liberated an island named Phu Quoc from the Viet Cong.  The Perry provided gunfire support using coordinates from ground and air spotters.  Provided by David Alexander
