Below photos of Hi-Drinks from the Destroyer USS Koontz in the Gulf of Tonkin 1968. The next to last photo I took from the deck of ship.
These were practice runs all though we have had to use Hi-Drinks when the weather was to bad to use the C-130. One lucky day for us was when the weather was to bad for both the C-130 and Hi-Drinks we had to get fuel at Dong Ha in the middle of a rocket attack. Needless to say I had to change my shorts when we got back. Usually Navy personnel took care of the deck work.
