DUKW Ride For A USMC Korean War Veteran

Recommended Posts


On 4 Sept. I took a USMC Korean War Veteran out for a DUKW ride in the Willamette River. This was the first time he had been in a DUKW since 1952! icon_eek.gif He was in "A" Co. 1st Amphibian TRK. BN. 2nd Platoon. He went in the Marine Corps when he was 18 and was an assistant DUKW drive during the Korean War. His father, a former WWII Veteran, was the driver in the same DUKW! icon_eek.gif He said the DUKW ride brought back a lot of memories from his youth! Here is a link to a youtube video:
