I was the coxswain of Monitor M-111-1 Oct 1968 to Jul 1969. Our usual base was USS Benewah at Dong Tam. One of our major actions was when we were attacked on our way back from a mission on the Vam Co Tay the morning of Mar 30, 1969. After taking multiple RPG-2 hits, the napalm tanks caught fire, the coxswain flat was destroyed, and the boat was a total loss. I beached it downriver from the firefight as it was sinking.

I'm Mike Redding's daughter; we came across this page when we found my dad's membership card in his briefcase. He enjoyed the reunions and looked forward to them every year. If anyone has any memories they'd like to share with me, please feel free. I can keep them to share later with his 21 month old granddaughter that he loved dearly the 8 months he had with her. I'm sure he's still singing karaoke somewhere out there.
