    • Hi Captian,

      From 1966-1969 I was aboard the F.B. Parks and you were my Captian. Can you asist me in finding out when exactly we were in Da Nang Harbor? Do you know if we MAY have been exposed to agent orange during that time? Any information you could supply would be greatly appreciated.

      Smooth Sailing and God Bless,
