Description
Footage taken by Gerald Sampont while he was assigned to the US Coast Guard Squadron One Division-13 at Cat Lo, Vietnam aboard the USCGC Point White (WPB-82308). Films were originally for Sampont's family, and thus include pictures of him. Most of the film was filmed at Cat Lo and the R and R Center at Vung Tau. Film includes footage of the Wringer Wash Machine onboard, strapped between the two .50 caliber machine guns on deck. Footage also includes CO John Lockwood and gives a good idea of what it was like for the Coast Guard onboard, including their "full combat gear", which included no shirts, cut offs and shower shoes. Other vessels seen in this film are PCF-40, CG 82306, and the USS Rowan (DD-782).
