Getting shot at!

Anybody on Jouett's first West Pac tour remember getting shot at by the North Vietnamese. We were going in to 8 miles to help recover a helo from a sar when we were fired upon. The first shot was starboard about 100yds. The second was starboard about 50 yds. Cap'n Hayes took the con and we went all ahead emergency flank and left hard rudder to get out of there. Was that Big Mother73 that was damaged?
