As I understand it, all you have to prove for agent orange is that you were on what ship and when it was in VN. I saw that info on VA site.

I was on the USS Markab AR 23 during Westpac in 1968 and was on the ship when it was decommissioned in 1969. I was a Lithographer on the ship. Would like to know how to receive the order of the mothball certificate. One of my best duties was aboard this ship.

I served on the USS Markab from October 1966 - April 1968. I was a Hull Technician. I am looking for proof that I had boots on the ground in Vietnam. I know I fixed broken equipment/boats Anyone have any suggestions regarding how to prove this? If you are receiving VA disability compensation for exposure... how did you prove it?

Thanks Jim

Dear Markab Ship Mates,
With much sorrow, I must inform you that Jim passed away in late November. It was very sudden and I miss him very much after being together for 63 years. He has many friends and it helps me a lot to hear from them. We both enjoyed our trips to the Markab Reunions. Keep up the good work. I know everyone enjoys them. Laverne Michel

Today I attended the funeral services for shipmate Richard Stef as a representative of the Markab Association. I was welcomed warmly by his family and treated as a guest of honor. The services included the Navy Hymn as the processional hymn and Anchors Aweigh as the recessional song. There was a slide show looping before services started and there were several pictures taken aboard the Markab. I even recognized some of them. I am hoping to see Bob and his wife Cindy at the reunion banquet when we have our two bell ceremony. Maybe some of our WW2 vets remember Richard Stefanisin from Chicago, IL

Dear USS Markab members.

I regret to inform you that another of your heros died this week. Richard Robert Stefanisin (now Stef) served during WWII on the USS Markab as a Water Tender 3rd Class. He died from heart related issues on is daughters birthday, Tuesday January 28, 2014 at his home with family in Aurora Colorado.
He never knew of your organization until just recently and he was so excited to know that you have an annual reunion. He was making plans to attend next year with his wife but unfortunately he died before that could happen.
I don't know if any of your members remember my father, but he will be buried this next week in the Ft. Logan National Cemetary with Military Honors.
His funeral will conclude with Anchors Aweigh and a 21 gun salute.
God bless all of our veterans of all wars, but especially to each of you who served on the USS Markab.
Robert F. Stef

Aurora, Colorado

My husband John F Angelo served aboard the Markab AR23 in early 1960s. He passed away May,1999. I am looking for any friends of his and pictures that anyone might have taken. I think he was a fireman E2 maybe, he lost one rank because he waited too long to reenlist. He had a lot of friends during that tour and I was hoping to find some and see how they are doing. :!thinking:

I just an entry yesterday and forgot to give my husbands name - I was wondering if anyone knew my late husband, Ronald W. Moffatt. He was assigned to the outside repair shop working on air conditioning and refrigeration equipment. Also, he was assigned as division compartment petty officer and division damage control petty officer.
