Darkrain,

The following is copied from your profile:

Was involved with Linebacker I & II when on the Butte
Interestingly, navsource has the Butte not arriving in Vietnam until after both Linebackers were over.

In fact, according to navsource, the Butte spent about 20 days participating in operations off the coast of Vietnam during the ceasefire in 1973 after Linebacker II ended.

Linebacker was conducted from May to October 1972.
Linebacker II (a.k.a. The Christmas Bombings) was conducted from 18-26 Dec 1972.

Would you care to speak to that?
