SEA TIGERS OF VUNG RO BAY
US Army 458th Transportation Co.
US Army 18th Military Police Brigade
During the Vietnam War the United States Military employed heavily-armed high-speed gunboats to intercept and disrupt enemy travel on the rivers and bays of South Vietnam. While the US Navy operated over 250 of these specialized watercraft, the US Army had less than 40.
Vung Ro Bay was one of nine outposts of the US Army 458th Transportation Company (PBR)
2023 SEA TIGERS ASSOCIATION REUNION
HOTEL INDIGO, EVERETT WA.
Hotel Indigo Everett Room with King Bed
Our 2023 Reunion will be held from Sept 12 to Sept. 16, in Everett, WA. It is promising to be a memorable event with Bob Brower’s restored and operational PBR EVER VIGILANT on site, plus an operational PBR from the Gamewardens Northwest Chapter, allowing us to have a two-boat patrol. There will be plenty of rides down into the Snohomish Slough, which - I am told - resembles the Mekong Delta area. The boats will be on site all-day Thursday and Friday during the reunion. There will be a group outing planned for one day, plus a Ladies Day event to be scheduled at a later date.
Everett Marina & Hotel Indigo Pool Area
Our host hotel will be the Hotel Indigo Everett, 1028 13th Street, Everett, WA.located dockside at the Everett Marina. This hotel is an IHG property and is situated directly across from the Scuttlebutt Brewery. Room rates are $160 per night and include a daily breakfast for two in the hotel restaurant. Room rates are valid for three days prior to the reunion and three days after. To register call the hotel at (425) 217-2772. Please be aware that the daily breakfast vouchers are only available to those who register under the Sea Tigers Association. If you are staying off-site, you must pay the regular breakfast rates.
Banquet Room Hotel Restaurant
We are in need of donation items to be raffled off at the reunion. Please let Tom Farrell or Mike Hebert know if you have anything to contribute. All donations are very much appreciated.
There is so much to see and do in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Make sure you schedule an extra day or two and spend some time taking in the sights of the area.
Hotel Indigo Boardwalk Hotel Indigo Restaurant Fare
Although there is an airport in Everett, prices will be much higher than flying in to Seattle. Check your flight costs for both options prior to making a reservation. The airport code for Everett is PAE and the code for Seattle is SEA. Airfare from the East Coast for my wife and I was almost half the cost by us flying into Seattle. You can rent a car from Budget for less than $80 a day and drop it off at the Everett airport (Drop-off fee included in rental). It is a 45-minute drive from Seattle airport to our hotel in Everett.
There are several very nice restaurants within walking distance of our host hotel:
* Anthony's Homeport which serves fresh northwest seafood.
* Anthony's Woodfire Grill is located near the marina and offers seafood & Choice beef selections.
* Jetty Bar & Grill is located in the host hotel and has classic coastal cuisine.
* Lombardi's Italian is an upscale Italian restaurant.
* Scuttlebutt Brewing Co. has classic pub fare.
* Seas the Day Cafe is a coffee shop with pastries, breakfast & lunch items
