Vietnam Patrol Boat Now a Memorial; Kalakala Designation Cited

Vietnam veterans who patroled the rivers of the Mekong Delta and other waterways have dedicated a refurbished boat that carried them on their missions. The boat, called a Patrol Boat River by the US Navy, was 31-feet long, made of fiberglass, and manufactured in Bellingham, Wash. The dedication was noted by the Everett Herald in today's edition. The boat was refurbished at the Bellingham International Maritime Museum.

The listing of the historic ferry Kalakala on the National Register of Historic Places was noted by a story in today's Tacoma News Tribune. See the MHN Blog entry of April 1.
