Yes it was is in west pack.
The first boat I became qualified on. The USS Perch APSS-313.
richnrockville I didn't know you were a old smoke boat sailer or as many say pig boat sailer. The ladies in Japan called us sewer pipe sailors.
Anyway the diesel oil floating on top of the coffee does keep you regular. After the Perch was decommissioned I went to the USS Volador SS-490 another diesel boat More stories than I can remember or tell. Yes submarines are called boats in the US Navy. We also did things on surfaced also.
This is from Mike Burkhollder.
This is August '66 and we got called in to rescue a company of South Veitnam army troops who were surrounded in a village near the coast. We sent in our Perch Raiders and UDT in several rubber boats with outboards and brought them back to the boat. Several villagers were in that group too. All the while this was going on we shelled over their heads with our 40's and also hit a VC ammo truck or dump because there was a hell of a secondary explosion after one shell hit. There were no prisoners that I know of. After we filled up the after deck with these guys and had all boats on board, we bagged ass out of there.
Their is a bunch of pictures on the website.

Not me and yet it's me.
Cleaning my study, finding a lot of nostalgic mementos. Like these in an old wallet not opened in years, almost a year worth of monthly passes for local public transport in Rome from 2004-2005 and a "modern" library card to Public Library of Carrara, the marble town in Tuscany from 2001:
