The 458th Sea Tigers showed up to assess the condition of the PBR. Our detail helped them get some measurements and were fascinated by the stories that these Vietnam veterans told them. The 458th is planning to work with the museum to completely restore the PBR. Contact the museum if you are interested in volunteering to assist on this project or another restoration project at the museum….we have trains, aircraft, trucks and more boats that need work.https://www.facebook.com/USARMYTransportationMuseum/photos/a.635943996502559/3736733679756893/
Ralph Richason sent me these pics he took from the Miss Hampton II tour boat, owned by Mike Hebert, The Riverine Reporter for the US Army’s 458th Transportation Co. (PBR) veterans group!
