Got spare food coupons? and want to assist military families in need? Food coupons are honoured and they are still 'good' for an additional 6 months beyond their printed expiration date, at all commissaries over-seas. Send them to:

Naval Support Act - Naples
Family Service Center
Attn: Food Coupon Drive
PSC 817, Box 10
FPO-AE 09622

Thank you.

I served with the 2/47 9th ID in Vietnam.
Hi Terry my name is Kathleen my Dad William Gorman was a survivor of the USS Johnston also. I have been looking for others to contact to find out more about that part of his life/
