Title: DLG-10 Deployment List
Post by: Mark D on April 14, 2006, 13:47:39 PM
I'm looking for the exact dates of overseas deployments for the King. I'll be going to the National Archives soon and I want to concentrate on copying the deck logs for operational deployments first. This only applies to the DLG days (1960 to 1974). The DDG logs aren't at the National Archives, so that will be a story for another day. Here is what I have (I will edit this post as I get more information):

West Pac - June 6, 1962 to December 21, 1962

West Pac - August 1, 1963 to March 10, 1964

West Pac / Vietnam - April 5, 1965 to November 2, 1965

West Pac / Vietnam - June 1966 to December 1966

West Pac / Vietnam - February 24, 1969 to September 4, 1969

West Pac / Vietnam - July 6, 1970 to December 17, 1970

West Pac / Vietnam - August 17, 1971 to February 14, 1972 (end date unconfirmed)

West Pac / Vietnam - October 2, 1972 to April 21, 1973

I know that we left San Diego on 17 August 1971. The last entry in my diary is 14 February 1972. I'm not sure why I stopped writing.
