Man!!! just seen this thread for the first time and i must admit this is the first time ive read about this operation
its a chapter of history i never knew about, bd popeye and you were there!! that is just amazing peice of history some of those pics were just outstanding, especially with those 10 CH-53s on deck of the carrier
just one question, why was USN not better prepared for the evacuation and have more carriers in the region?? or was the evacutaion done in very sort notice?
