[ Post a Response | The USS Jouett DLG/CG29 Message Board ]

I served aboard the USS Jouett from Dec 1966 (plank owner) until April 14, 1968. I did one tour of Vietnam from Feb 15 - Mar 23. Also was in DaNang Harbor on Feb 15, 1968. My DD214 does not list me as serving in Indochina or receiving the Vietnam Service Medal (which would identify me as a Vietnam Veteran). Upon writing to the National Personnel Records to correct this they informed me that I did not serve with a vessel that was awarded the Vietnam Service Medal. My question is did my shipmates receive or not receive the VSM? This seems like a mistake by the NPRC to list the USS Jouett as not receiving this honor, but I figured I would ask you guys first about this. Were you recognize as Vietnam Veterans?
