A correction & addition to 1st posting; my hometown at time of enlistment was Oceanside, Ca. Yeah yeah...I was a Marine Brat of a retired Marine. I joined the Seabees under their "Direct Procurement Petty Officer" program, aka "Instant Petty Officer." I had considered joining the Marines, but my dad, SSGT. Wendell Blodgett USMC Ret. (a 3 war vet including the Chosin Reservoir) said to me "...you're going to do what to my Marine Corps." As it was I spent some time with his old unit in Vietnam..7th Engineers USMC. Semper Fi ...

Greetings, Served witrh the SEABEES in Vietnam as an EO3 with Fuel & Water, Public Works, NSA Danang from 02/69 thru 02/70. Yep, Camp Tien Sha Barracks 39 - or Club 39 as we knew it - was my home. Fuel & Water's duty shack was in the far southwest corner of China Beach where all the trucks were parked. I believe there is now a very large and luxurious resort at the former China Beach installation. Oh well.

I am very interested to know the whereabouts and contact number of LTC Albert R Perkins. It has been 36 years since I last saw him in Cam Ranh Bay, South Vietnam. We worked together with MACCORDS. I would just like to know if there is someone here who can give me his whereabouts. I hope I could still get in touch with him.
Very truly yours

I was born in Nha Trang in 1967. I was adopted when I was 5, into a military family (father -american, mother - Japanese). My name is supposedly Chinese, and my passport states I was in a Chinese neighborhood. I am not 'seriously' thinking it would be possible to find my mother, but I would like to get close to the area.
I am planning my first trip back to Vietnam with my husband. I don't know what resources are out there for assistance (just to know more about the bases where I know my biological mother worked)... My adopted father has limited knowledge, as he was an Naval officer and did not spend a lot of time in Vietnam, except to look for a child to adopt.
Any assistance would be great! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
