Title

Gunfire Support 16 June 1968 - Audio Transmission

Description

Audio tape taken by a Coastguardsman in CIC aboard USCG Campbell (W-32) shortly after PCF-19 went down. The first five minutes are somewhat difficult to hear as two men are talking next to the recorder. It eventually clears up after the first five minutes. Among the call signs are USS Boston (Mauler), Enfield Cobra Xray(Campbell), Enfield Cobra Victor One(Point Dume), and Enfield Cobra Charlie(PCF-12). This recording has been provided to SBSM by James Steffes, ENC USN Retired and author of "Swift Boat Down, The Real Story of the Sinking of PCF-19".
