Hello Everyone,

I just picked this up and figured I would share.

It is for Swift Boat Squadron 1 .

It is cast aluminum and appears to have not been mounted or finished.

I would appreciate your opinions.

Thanks

Dan

And here's a history of Coastal Squadron One from a Change of Command ceremony in Cam Ranh Bay in 1969. Boat Squadron One activated in Subic Bay 1 Oct 1965, set up HQ in Saigon 22 Oct 1965. The Swift Boats were brought to Vietnam on LSTs. Re-designated Coastal Squadron One 1 Nov 1966 and moved HQ to Cam Ranh Bay in 1967. So this plaque dated from 1965-66,
