THE SOLE PURPOSE OF THIS WEBSITE IS TO PROVIDE ACCESS TO THE INFORMATION THAT WAS FORMERLY ON THE BLUE WATER NAVY WEBSITE. THIS INFORMATION WAS EXTREMELY HELPFUL TO VETERANS FOR MANY YEARS ON MANY TOPICS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY FOR VIETNAM VETERANS CONCERNED WITH AGENT ORANGE ISSUES AND FOR VETERANS WHO DID NOT HAVE BOOTS-ON-GROUND AND DID NOT SERVE ON THE INLAND WATERWAYS OF VIETNAM.

THIS SITE IS AN ARCHIVE OF THAT INFORMATION AND IS PRESENTED FOR PUBLIC USE AND VIEWING BY THE SOLE OWNER AND CREATER OF THAT ORIGINAL WEBSITE. IT IS AS IT WAS ON THE DAY IT WAS REMOVED FROM SERVICE BY THE NEW MANAGEMENT OF THE BLUE WATER NAVY VIETNAM VETERANS ASSOCIATION.
