My experience spanned five years from 1968 through 1970 and again from 1972 to 1973.
On my first tour I worked throughout the country with Vietnamese and American Navy units as part of the Naval Advisory Group (Personal Response Program). Almost all Navy people received these briefings at Coronado and Mare Island upon arrival in-country.
The next two years was spent at Coronado running the intercultural relations part of the Counterinsurgency School.
I was back in-country again doing the same job in 1972 and 1973 plus some work with SOG units.
I'm now just a retired LDO living in Bremerton, Washington.
