Selected Entries from the Log of LCT 1380 ...

Eventually, efforts were made to lift the "T's" back to the deck of LST's for the trip home. While lifting the "T" ahead of us, the crane broke and could not be repaired. We all looked for orders to go home, and the last I heard, the 1380 was given to the Chinese.

Best regards to all "The Crew" and to our friends on the other 51 "T''s" we worked (and bummed food and water) with in the Far East.
