Salute to one of America's finest.

BM2 Calvin R. Gish was the last casualty of Boat Support Unit One (Vietnam Mobile SEAL Support Teams). Calvin inserted and extracted Navy SEAL commandos, while under heavy enemy fire, into the jungles surrounding the Mekong River, its tributaries, back waterways and crock, snake, and enemy infested swamps. He came from one of the most decorated units of the Vietnam War. His laughter will always repeat in my minds eye. What a great guy and ship mate. I stayed up with him all night the night before he shipped out to Nam. I think he knew that he wasn't going to come back. I was the first team to go to Nam in 1967 (MST-2 Detachment Alpha). That night he asked so many questions of me on what to expect. We drank beer and talked for hours. How was I to know that it would be our last talk together. I miss him and the spirit that he had about him. Until we meet again my friend, fair wends and following seas. BM1 James T. Born [email protected]

Rest in Peace my friend

Note: I'm sure Calvin died in 1969, not 1970.
Thank you, Calvin, for "showing me the ropes" at BSU-1 prior to your deployment. I deployed right after you to the same MST-2 detachment and am proud of you and am sorry I couldn't have spent more time with you.
