Nouméa, New Caledonia

Loaded our gear (Lt.jg. Taylor (VP-12) and I) aboard the launch and chugged over to the Navy landing this morning to catch the truck to Tontouta for the SCAT ride to Button. We waited and waited and no truck showed up. Finally we found out that the truck had already departed without us due to a case of mistaken identity. Back to Ile Nou in disgust.
