Vietnam War Boats Filmed for Documentary; New MHN News Feeds

The Everett Herald published two stories about the Vietnam-era PBR (patrol boat river) vessels made in Bellingham. The first article tells the story on one PBR veteran. The second article profiles the boats themselves. The boats will be part of a Discovery Channel documentary series called "Battle Zone" which begins in January 2007. The episode with the PBRs will air in March 2007. It was filmed on the Snohomish River near Everett. For more on the boats, here's a listing for the Bellingham International Maritime Museum.

MHN has added an RSS and Atom feed to its home page. Look for the orange "RSS" and "Atom" images. The feeds let you know when there's a change to the "What's Happening Now?" module (the event that's next up in the Calendar) and the "MHN/Music: Featured Artist and Album" module, which changes once a week. You'll also find RSS, Atom and My Yahoo! feeds on the MHN Calendar pages. Subscribe now!
