“The PBR (Patrol Boat, Riverine) is a small rigid-hulled patrol boat used in the Vietnam war. The small versatile vessel could operate in shallow and weed-choked rivers with great speed and maneuverability. PBR Streetgang is the name given to the boat crew in the 1979 Vietnam film Apocalypse Now. “The crew were mostly kids.
