During a semi-official wardroom farewell party for LCDR Fisher on 15 July 1966 in a hotel in Da Nang a bomb was detonated in a hotel immediately across the street on the same floor and facing the room the party was in. All except Capt Fisher immediately returned to the ship and thereafter there was no liberty in Da Nang. Dennis Hager
