Rich L. Corrick will never be forgotten. Rich served on R-112-1 (1966-1968). He was an Officer and Board Member from our beginning and one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. The “Mobile Museum” was Rich’s idea from the beginning, and he did a great job with it until he was taken away from us by Agent Orange, February 29, 2012.
Before the names were added to the trailer, Dave Argabright and a few other members of the 2nd/60th and Ralph Fries of the MRFA spent about 2 years exhaustively researching Government databases to ensure a high degree of accuracy. However, there are some errors in the Government data and on the Mobile MRFA Memorial/Museum.
The outside displays the Mobile Riverine Force and 9th Infantry Division insignia, the Vietnam Service Ribbon, and Mobile Riverine Force Association Memorial and Museum.
All the names and units of the U.S. Navy, 9th Infantry Division and Supporting Unit personnel Killed in Action (KIA).

The Association requests that fuel is paid at $1.00 per mile plus $50.00 per day for the Driver. We will need two motel rooms down, back and while there. We would need two rooms each day as another couple comes along to assist. We keep the trailer open from roughly 9 am to 5 pm. It’s nice to have electricity available to use the lights in the trailer. We need roughly 70 feet to park it on grass as we can set up our tent.
