I am in need of either a quad sheet or nautical chart that was published during the Vietnam War years - around 1965..

 

Specifically, I am looking for Poulo Gama Island, which was at the on the south end off the Mekong Delta.

 

I have no coordinates, and realize that names changed after the war.

 

Crewmembers from the USS Savage attended a Christmas eve outing on this island and are now having to prove "boots on ground" to receive service benefits for disabilities due to Agent Orange.

Any ideas?

 

Many thanks,

The Joint Operational Graphics at this site would be a good place to start.  This is probably the right sheet.  Here's the 1:1 million navigational sheet.

 

If you can narrow down the area a bit, I think you'd be able to consult the actual navigational charts or Army Map Service sheets at the Library of Congress.
