VIETNAM VETERANS OF AMERICA

clipperskipper, regarding your last post, UDT was formed in 1943 and SEALS were formed in 1962. Also, UDT and SEALS both served during the Vietnam War at the same time. Since they co-existed as separate units from 1962 until 1983 (the year they merged and kept the SEAL name), these are the reasons why I believe that UDT is not the former name for the SEALS.

DRT - A Dead Reckoning Tracer used by Navy ships to track the true course (path) of a ship. We normally kept this piece of equipment turned off and only turned it on whenever there was a man overboard. It would plot the true course of a ship as it maneuvered to get as close to where the man fell into the water even when we could not see the man.
