 Restored and decorated with a Christmas wreath on Pearl Harbor Day 2006, this is the only remaining Mobile Riverine Force boat of the Vietnam era in existence at the Vietnam Unit Memorial on the Naval Amphibious Base at Coronado, California.  The CCB sits alongside a Swift Boat and a PBR at a memorial honoring all Navy and Coast Casualties of the Vietnam War.  See more about the CCB and it's restoration at MRFA site.
