The US NAVY Seawolves - Special unrecognized heroes
Michael Schafernocker was a member of the US Navy Seawolves unit in Vietnam - he was a door gunner - a one man weapons system that supported and protected any US forces in the Mekong Delta - Navy Seals, Army, Swift Boats, and Special Operations forces.
Fourty years after the fact, a movie was made about the Seawolves called Scramble The Seawolves - a documentary about the elite unit that was created to fill a special role of war - was created in Vietnam and was disbanded in Vietnam - no residence or activity on US soil.
Unfortunately 44 members of the Seawolves were lost - Michael Schafernocker was 1 of those 44. His mother, Dorothy, worked tirelessly for decades to make America aware of our veterans - and unfortunately she passed away before the movie was completed.
