Hello. I'm a social worker trying to help a Veteran in hospice (diagnosis Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma) get a claim processed for A/O exposure before his passing. He states he served two six-month tours on USS Perkins sometime between 1965-1967. He recalls being let off the ship one day "to look around a city" in Vietnam. I am hoping a ship log may exist to prove that this Veteran had "boots on ground". Any advice appreciated. Thanks!
