I serve in Vietnam 6/68 to 7/69. I was with charlie co 1st battalion 4th Marines 3rd Marine Division. Rear base Quang Tri forward base Vandergriff Combat Base. Spent a whole 13 months pounding the hill of north Vietnam.
I was in Delta Company 1st Platoon and then moved to H&S Company where I was a Scout -- August, 1963-1965. I have knowledge of the passing (including obituaries) of the following members of our Scout team:
Robert Hayden III of Colchester MA, died November, 2000
Ronald Dean Bundy of Little River. SC. died November 24. 2016
William "Bill" James Montgomery (aka ZOut) of Colorado Springs, CO died May 30, 2019
I am looking for Ed Bordeau who was the driver for 3 battalion CO's (A.I. Thomas, H.D. Fredericks, and Robert J. Perrich).
Looking for anyone who knew Doc Teddy K. Schindeler who served with Delta Company 1/4 and earned a Silver Star for his heroic actions during the Battle of Cam Lo on February 2, 1968. I would especially like to find Sgt. Donald L. Jakovac because he apparently had contact with the Schindeler family after Teddy's death in 1998.
I was also wondering why there is no mention of Doc Schindeler in the Delta 1/4 H&S roster or his Silver Star award for 1968?
Teddy and I went through Hospital Corps school at Balboa in San Diego in 1966 and FMF Training School @ Camp Pendelton in 1967 together. We were buddies and went to Vietnam together but were split up at Da Nang, Teddy going to D 1/4 and me going L 3/9. We lost contact after that.
A Marine writer, Harry Spiller, is writing a book about FMF Corpsmen in Vietnam and I would like a section dedicated to my friend Doc Teddy Schindeler.
Anyone who served with Teddy or has photos of Teddy in Vietnam and would like to share them for this upcoming book, please contact me at 847-910-4789 or email@example.com.

Remember your Christmas in the Nam? Mine was spent on an ambush patrol near the Cambodian border.
