Subject: Threetrips over there from Subic Bay, Philappines. Bringing all size ammo to the fleet

Message: Was on the USS Mt. Katmai (AE-16). Left Subic each time aill all 5 cargo holds full of "everything", Even had a deck load. Would meet another AE returning to Subic and we'd meet and take her leftover cargo. We'd start up North in the I corps, steam South through II, III, & IV corps My brother was killed over there on the road between Pleku and Qui Nong. Notoriously called "ambush alley". I was on my AE, off the coast that day and believe me when I say: "I felt it"! I knew something happened. The MIA notice arrived 3 days later and the KIA notice 2 days after that.
