I have several books on the subject. Go figure.

I do recommend this book. It's true to the best of my knowledge but wrote in a novel fashion so no rules are broken.

If anybody is interested here are a couple out of many websites with pictures and information. I'm proud to be a sailor who qualified on the USS Perch and stay aboard until the day she was decommissioned. We did a lot of things that to this day is not public information.
The war took some of the Perch sailors but most made it home from the war.

USS Perch: SOF Submarine | Defense Media Network


In 1965, the Perch returned to war, its third. The Vietnam War would prove to be the conflict in which the Perch saw the most action, much of it special operations missions. The Perch’s deck armament now included two 40 mm guns and .50-caliber machine guns that could be mounted on its conning tower. The Vietnam War for the Perch began in March, when the submarine participated in Operation Jungle Drum III, an exercise in which a 75-man Marine Corps reconnaissance force was landed on the Malay Peninsula. In August and September, the Perch conducted search and rescue operations off the Vietnamese coast. Then at the end of the year, in support of Operation Market Time, the interdiction of communist supply and infiltration along the South Vietnamese coast, the Perch conducted amphibious landings as part of Operation Dagger Thrust.


We save their asses. They were surrounded by the bad guys but we got them all to safety. We done it a WW=II vintage smoke boat (diesel submarine) with no torpedo tubes but lots of guns topside. Up close and personal. You can do the research on the red kerchiefs around their necks. Hint=Moutagnard's

The USS Perch APSS-313, Capitan and crew wrote the book on SOF in Vietnam. We also played hard.

Actually the people of Subic Bay ( Olongapo) liked us. Nothing was damaged that wasn't paid for 3 fold. When I left Subic as a home port and came back a year or so later I went to my favorite bar. They had my civilian close cleaned and hanging in plastic bag in a closet just in case I ever came back. The Filipino people can be very good friends or enemies. I made friends with them and they will remember that forever and so will I.

Thanks Jack for a thoroughly interesting post I enjoyed reading that - you should write up some memoirs about your service days I am sure there would be lots who like myself would be interested.
That sub sounds an interesting one too not having torpedos or did it just have tubes but not ordinance for them? and I suppose it was a little pre missile days too for that vintage boat.
Myself was too young to be conscripted into the British Army by a out seven months or I might have been out doing military duty too.
Both my brothers served in the Army one 6th Para airborne - served I Cyprus during the troubles and the youngest one was an MP in Northern Ireland during that awful period (both younger than me and signed up) . But the latter has passed on now and he was ever the same after coming back from that place.
Me I was then training as a Registered Nurse and am now well past my retirement date but still going
I shall try to get hold of that book as it is quite easy these days on the net eh?
Once again thanks for sharing.

Nice pics guys

I found out at midnight last night that a part on the inside of Jess's phone that was needed to charge it broke off thus rendering the phone dead and all that was on it once the battery ran flat! I couldn't back up the photos by cable as it used the same port for the USB. It had 40% left so I quickly set up google + and set it to back up all photos. I am happy to say it backed up every dam one of them online before the battery died for the final time.

I have just been looking through them on my PC and there are some great ones but here is a pretty recent one of me and my youngest daughter Rosie. A lovely photo I think.

Probably not the cutest pic of her and I missed out my oldest daughter who is 7. So even though it's supposed to be post a pic of yourself I think it's only fair to post a pic of them both together!
