We were blasting a channel for this island so deeper draft boats could come in. We are taking a break and have the usual Rum & water when in walks Robert Mitchem (the movie star). Anyway Frank strikes up a conversation with him & I am standing there so Frank asks Mitchem "Do you do any diving"? Mitchem said No, and Frank says I wish I had you for about 15 minutes. I'd drop you down to 150 feet so fast those sunglasses your wearing would look like contact lens.
Mitchum grabs his glass and yanks them off and stares at Frank. Frank starts to laugh and before you know it they had there arm on each others shoulder. Only Frank could do that. I miss him and I could fill a book on all the things I experienced while operating in the team. I was fortunate to dive with the best. I'll break them out and send them to you.
Again, congratulations on your photo album. I am looking forward to Key West, UWSS reunion for next year. Cindy , my wife, and I bought a new Toyota Prius.

WEBMASTER's NOTE: Jan, Do you remember the movie that was made by the USN photographer? The SEAL that went on the Huey with him away from the canal, about 1.5 clicks was me. Remember the COBRA that was going to make a firing run on us? I got ahold of LT. Harvey on the PRC-25 I was carrying and told him to get ahold of the cobra on his other radio (i think PRC-77 had airplane frequencies) and tell the guys we were not VC. I instructed the "kid" photographer when the COBRA came around to go down to the bottom of the rice paddies water and dig himself into the mud. I was promised a copy of all the pictures and that movie which I never received. Doc Riojas
BTW: You got a medal for that OP, a Navy Achievement Medal with combat V. So did I but I refused it because I was only there with you guys one week.

The proud Afghan risked all to save a Navy SEAL. Now, feeling abandoned, he is facing death threats.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12227623/site/newsweek/By Ron Moreau and Sami Yousafzai
April 17, 2006 issue - Even with all the troubles that followed, Mohammad Gulab says he's still glad he saved the U.S. Navy SEAL. "I have no regrets for what I did," the 32-year-old Afghan told NEWSWEEK recently. "I'm proud of my action." Nevertheless, he says, "I never imagined I would pay such a price."
There, Gulab says, the SEAL thanked him and promised to send him $200,000 as a reward. The Afghan also claims that U.S. officers, knowing that he and his family would be in danger because of his heroism, promised to relocate them to America within two months. (The military denies such an offer was made.) All he has now is a $250-a-month job at the base as a construction laborer. "I sacrificed everything," he says. "Now no one cares."
