Film, audio, still image, artifacts, and manuscripts document Darryl Skuce's service and experiences on Swift Boats on the rivers and canals of South Vietnam from 1967 through his wounding on August 13, 1969. A narrative of Skuce's military biography describes his service in the United States Navy. Artifacts include a captured Viet Cong flag that was damaged when the crew of the boat Skuce was aboard detonated a mine in a canal. A photograph of the mine is included. A cassette tape contains common, every-day radio traffic from operations on PCF 43, which was destroyed in February 1969. Film footage shows Skuce's journey to Vietnam and what he saw from his position as a gunner on board PCF 71. Letters home from Skuce and an original poem describe how he felt during his service. Also included are six medals and service ribbons awarded to Skuce, including a Purple Heart for wounds he received while in action in August, 1969.
