CDR James Duermeyer was one of the millions of men who served. But not all military men were on the front lines in Vietnam. Far more served in support of the front line warriors. CDR Duermeyer served on a U.S. Navy auxiliary ship which served in Da Nang, Cam Rhan Bay, and Vung Tau, by towing disabled water craft from Vietnam to the shipyards at Subic Bay. He tells his stories of being the executive officer and navigator on this small, but powerful, little ship as it carried out its duties in Southeast Asia.

His stories are heartfelt, true accounts of heroes in obscurity, told in anecdotal, and often humorous fashion. If you ever wondered what it would be like to be in the Navy, serving in hot, dirty, gritty conditions as a junior officer, this book will take you dead center into the life on a small auxiliary ship. Along with being a collection of memoirs, the stories are very informative, while being light hearted at times.

A good micro history of life in the Navy during the Vietnam War.
