The MANATEE simultaneously refuels USS TRIPOLI (LPH-10) and USS THOMASTON {LSD-28). During this August 9th refueling, a man fell overboard from the TRIPOLI. Operations were suspended and the man was recovered. ON THE LINE The " Line " extends from the Cambodian Border to the DMZ, and into the Tonkin Gulf. In the South the MANATEE provided support for ships patroUing coastal waters, such as radar picket escorts, ocean and coastal minesweepers and Swift Boats. These ships were involved in the primary mission of denying supply routes to the enemy. Further North our custom- ers included amphibious ships, hospital and gunfire support ships. In the Tonkin Gulf, the MANATEE serviced Sea Dragon destroyers, carrier groups, and search and rescue ships. During the seven months, the MANATEE made nine trips to the " Line " , not only fulfilling her own commitments but assuming commitments of other oilers suffering casualties. (Right) One of the MANATEE ' s sister Service Force ships, the ammunition ship USS HALE- AKALA (AE-25) makes her approach for re- fueling. (Above) A Swift Boat approaches for replenishment. The 50 foot high-speed craft operates in the coastal waters of South Vietnam.
