Epping Forest Unit Awards and Campaign Medals

Attached is information from OPNAV NOTICE 1650 Master List Of Unit Awards And Campaign Medals on the USS Epping Forest MCS-7. As 60′s and 70′s sailors know, the former LSD-4 was transferred from the Amphibious Forces to Mine Flotilla One in 1962, and homeported in Sasebo, Japan to serve as Flagship for the Commander Mine Flotilla ONE/COMINRON THREE. Our Commodore wore both hats from 1962 until 1970 when Mine Forces Pacific reorganized following the de-commissioning of the USS Epping Forest MCS-7, and the USS Catskill MCS-1 that replaced it.
