As stated above this is a very short one page report about the North Vietnamese reported sighting of the USS Craig on March second 1964 via the hull
number. This was 6 months before the attack on the USS Maddox where they used ground Radar to keep track of the ship.
Since the Hull Number is given it is apparent that they were able to make the sighting by visual rather than radar. It is also speculated from what
they discovered later from the USS Maddox reports, they did not recognize the USS Craig at this point to be a hostile entity therefore the need to act
upon this report was not met with hostile action on the part of the North Vietnamese.
