CWO Lee Thomas 1968 - 1969
E-7 Floyd Sims - 1965-66 and 1967-1968
2nd assignment was NCOIC of Dugout Party to Lake Langana to provide water to the Denver & Dakota parties.
CPT Earl Prechtel 1969 (1LT with Dugout Party). Earl writes: "Lee Thomas was a highly respected survey warrant officer. I don't know when he arrived in country, but as I recall, he ETS'd in early '69, about a month early, due to some family related issue. As Assistant S-3, I temporarily took over his field party until his replacement arrived."

Regarding Dugout party, I was a member of that in 1965. We were asked to come up with a name that started with "D".
At the time we were a water purification crew, though there were some of us with MOS of surveyor in the crew. While at a lake somewhere in the south I helped carve a dugout canoe from a tree we’d chopped down and added outriggers of bamboo. It was this boat that was the inspiration for the name "Dugout".
