Sounds like you had it good for a while, then. Shipboard food, plenty of rest in real bunks, and what gook would be crazy enough to try and attack a ship like that? Sure beats sleeping on the ground and eating cold C-rations while the gooks snuck up on you.

We were guarding supplies on an LST run by Koreans

Aha, so you took a cruise courtesy of the Navy! Delightful. I knew they must be good for something besides just bringing us our C-rations and ammo.

We were on a special detail as we did not take an R&R and needed time away.

What's an Army paratrooper from the 101st Airborne doing on an LST?

By the way, that's a Vietnam-era photograph. I wore exactly the same style of fatigue uniform. It really brings back the memories. Thanks smashers!
