Served with Delta 1/4 on lzloon trying to always thanking about the Marines that where wounded sitting on the lz behind me was told to gurad them untill medicvac picked them up. But we had. Rocket fire at that time. Three rounds hit the lz was always wondering if any of those guys laying there made it out because once my team was able to get back to our feet just before there was a chopper that came in there was five guys there but under fire I hope they made it out

My Father, Jose Maria Martinez, served in Vietnam. I came across your website last night and showed him. He asked me to forward to you the following message:

"I served with A 1/4 67/68. From Camp Evans to Con Thien, the Wash Out, Cam Lo, Charlie 2. We crossed The Ben Hai into North Vietnam looking for an underground hospital and arms cashe. 1st Sgt Crawford who later became the Sgt. Major of the CORPS. Lt. Webb K. I. A. Outside of Con Thien. Cpl. Cortez, Sgt. Sanders. Sgt. Ciconni, John Wayne Jeffries, big Bob Cole, Joe Evans and so many more. This and many of our Brothers. SEMPER FIDELIS!!"

My Father has since been deported to Mexico. So if any of you are ever down in the border town of Nuevo Progresso, Mexico, just across from Weslaco, Tx, I know he'd very much enjoy a visit.

Greetings. I am the Person Locator for the Marines Together We served website. Recently I was contacted by Suzanne Poynter, the widow of Patrick J. Poynter. Patrick served with B Co., 1/4 during the evacuation of Saigon in April of 1975. Patrick died of lung cancer. His widow believes it may have been the result of Agent Orange. She applied for benefits to the VA and was told that she needs a witness to prove that Patrick actually set foot on the RVN. Patrick's 214 indicates the following: Participated in Refugee Evacuation Operations off the coast of South Vietnam (the Off The Coast is the rub). It also states: Performed assigned duties connected with military operations in a designated hostile fire area during the period 02 April 1975 to 18 April 1975. Entitled to hostile fire pay and tax exemption. My question: Does any member of 1/4 remember LCpl Patrick J. Poynter? Any help would be appreciated. Thank You and Semper Fi!
