I noticed that Maury was awarded a Vietnam participation Medal and was wondering if it was awarded for the period of time during the aforementioned cruise.

The Vietnam Service Medal was awarded from 1 Jan 1961 to 14 Aug.1974. And by within the Combat zone.

I was transferred from Maury on May 31, 1961. Does being aboard Maury at that time qualify crew members for the Vietnam Service medal?

Was the ship in the Vietnam War zone?

We went from Bangkok SW around the tip of Vietnam then NW up the Vietnam coast to Hong Kong. We spent approx. 5 months actually in the Gulf of Siam surveying and charting the gulf.
