to the 458th members page

At the time the below names were listed on this page they had no email address and all communication with them was by snail mail. Since then many (most) have bought a computer. Sadly we have lost friends since this web site was started

Keith Olson
117 East 8th St
Duluth, MN

Information that Keith gave me; At QuiNhon July 69-Jan 70, Keith
says the only funny or stupid thing he can remember was blowing up the shit house on the dock, he went on to say that he was on PBR40 and that
they/ had sunk the boat!?
He went on to say that his nickname was Ole, he remembered a Indian nick name Chief, and also a man called Scotty
Keith says they were authorized the black beret in Jan 70. Keith is who I got the picture of the 92MP patch with the rocker.
Even if no one remembers Keith put him on your Xmas card list, I know he would like to hear from all of you
Jesse Townsend 1970-71
area code 270 756 2381
224 Lakeside Drive
Hardinsburg, KY

Jesse says he would like to hear from any and all former members of the 458th. At the present Jesse doesn't own a computer but I suspect that might change


Lee Helle  (me)
Box 237
Northport, WA
Canada phone # 250 269 7555
WA State # 509 732 8824

I was supply sgt Aug 68-Dec 69, never did get to know many of the boat crews, always was lousy at names.Some of you I know we met, the only
name I can remember of the boat crews is Angel, I have a feeling he was
always in hot water and every one would remember his name.
My supply clerk was named Pender, black dude, smart as a whip, he
drove down to see me at Ft Lee spring of 70,
Way back in 1958 my folks bought property in BC Canada, that's where I spend most of the summer months, but head south to Northport for the winters. If any of you get up this way give me a shout

John Pratt
11471 S.E.Doherty St.
Tequesta, Florida

Jon is a good friend of Joe Baptista who submitted his information. Joe
keeps in touch with his old buddy, so if you want to get in touch with Jon
you can use his snail mail or contact Joe, who might have a phone number.


Dave Hunt
7521 Eliason Rd
Sturgeon Bay, WI

Dave served Oct 68-Aug 69 as a mechanic type Cat Lo and Neah Bay US
Navy Base Floating Barge.

George Olson
W6152 Kimberly RD
Norway, MI

Waiting for details about George, he and Dave Hunt are buddies, so would guess they were there at about the same time

Thanks, Lee, and the rest of you ... for a most interesting portion of my life. Anyone remember the floating dock in Cam Rahn? or the approaching typhoon? I can't remember the names of any of the divers, anyone recall? How about when the Boston Whalers were assigned to patrol, protect, and drop grenades around the power ships? What about that "wild & crazy party" at Vung Rho Bay? There were several boats that came under fire, were halted, and we had to rush parts to get them going and "saved". Wonder why these things are coming back to me, now? And, someone told me that the Transportation Corps was gonna be boring and unrewarding. HA! I travel a lot now. May be able to meet with some of you, when I'm in your areas. For the next two years ('til 2004), my base will (should) be Fort Leonard Wood, MO. If you get by this way let me know.

Had a visit by Denny Hull and his wife during July of 2000. It was great seeing someone from Nam again. Found out one of members died a couple of years after his return. His name was Major C. Lee and he came home early because of his fathers passing. Also have talked to Jerry McDevitt and Dave Stewart a bit.
