Comments:

I was a Marine naval gunfire spotter, Vietnam, 1965-66. I fired the Mux a number of times. And, was aboard for a few days. Sailors in the CIC wanted to see incoming on the ground. Six of them went ashore with 7th Marines during an active operation. Three of us Marines were choppered out to the Mux. The sailors did not take long to learn to call fire. Different deal for grunt Marines aboard ship. We were worthless. Sailors cleaned our clothes, weapons, and fed us really, really well. While showing us how they kept up with our various calls for different loads, we were in the forward turret when an actual fire mission came in. I don't remember how many rounds were fired. Enough so that I lost enough hearing to receive VA disability compensation and wear hearing aids. In the ship's book for 1966 there is a picture of three, I think, Marines on deck. That is us. I am the short guy. They like to say Marines hate the Navy. What a bunch of crap. We Marines loved the Navy, for a lot of reasons. For the grunts, especially the DDs, Cruisers, LSMRs and naval gunfire support. That kept a lot of Marines alive. Semper Fi and enjoy your reunion.
