             GENERAL NOTICES;

              1.  THE FOLLOWING IS A NOTE FROM THE CAPTAIN;

                    On 22 May, we were a part of the first amphibious landing participated
                    in by a WHEC in the Viet Nam War.  We received a final SITREP on
                    the operation last night.  There were 6 companies of Regional/Popular
                    Force personnel involved - a total of over 500 men.  They landed at
                    two locations, both covered by our gunfire, and proceeded inland in
                    a pincer's movement.  There was light enemy contact but it was
                    quickly broken as the VC fled into the hills.  The troops were
                    extracted without difficulty about 1500 under cover of a swift boat and
                    two VN PGM's.

                    The operation was smooth, efficient and proved without doubt that a
                    WHEC can adequately cover landings of this size.  The Navy was
                    most pleased with our performance  and shore observers classify
                    our gunfire as extremely accurate.  Another "First" for the ANDY!
                    Well Done!

                                                                    /s/ H.S. Gallop, Jr.            
                                                                         EXECUTIVE OFFICER
