Comments: SK3 In H Co Dong Ha Camp Barnes and 1970 Camp Hoover and Camp Haskins south. Great bunch of men and everyone did their job. We all bitched and moaned but that was our right as a Seabee. After leaving the Battalion I was assigned to a Sub Tender. I can tell you from first hand experience that NOBODY can top the SEABEES for getting the job done. In hindsight I wish I had never left the Battalion . God bless you all. > Hello John Damron
