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".

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."
