We are proud to have gotten to chance to host a group of Vietnam War veterans at two of our beautiful cabin rentals! The veterans came to town for a reunion and brought with them the fastest boat used in the Vietnam War! One of the vets brought this boat back to the United States, and it’s being restored. Learn more about the boat and the veterans’ stay in our Smoky Mountain cabins below:
STAB stands for Strike Assault Boat. The 24UB7010 STAB served in the Vietnam War in 1969 and 1970 and is being restored in the U.S! The Strike Assault Boat Squadrons (STABS) were the fastest used in the war, and two of the crew members who served on this particular boat are coming to the reunion at our Smoky Mountain cabin rentals! The men are brought the boat with them and even invited members of our team to see the boat and meet with them.
Next year, they are taking the boat on a coast-to-coast tour since it marks 50 years after their service in Vietnam, providing millions of people the opportunity to see the STAB. That’s part of the reason why it’s such an honor to have had the Vietnam War veterans stay with us and allow us to see the boat!
We’re so happy we got to host the Vietnam War veterans while they were in town for this special reunion. The group stayed 5 nights in our King of the Mountain and Splash Mountain cabins. Here is more information about these beautiful cabins:
