I'm sharing the following post that was made on the 1-4 battalion Facebook site. Any 1966 D-1-4 Marines that can help with this???
Hoping someone might know who the following Marine was in Delta 1/4. Or maybe he's on this site. Sept. 16, 1966 I was shot down in the mutters ridge zone spending some time with Delta Co. I was going back to the chopper to drain the fuel out and some Marine yelled my name out and we exchanged a few words. I can't remember who he was or where I new him from and recently it's been bothering me.
Any help would be appreciated.
I was a member of 1st Bn 4th Marines III MAF, 0331 assigned to Delta company 3rd Plt from Weapons Plt. I was with Delta when we went into 484 LZ Loon. I remember the RPGs flying at my position and while firing the gun i was running out of ammo and yelling back screaming for more ammo. We were short and the 1st Sgt was trying to get ammo from the gun on the backside and get it to me. with 3 RPGs striking in front and behind my position. Small arms fire was striking all around and I kept firing intermittently trying to conserve ammo. I remember the planes dropping Napalm directly in front of my position and I could feel the heat as it burned.
I was a member of H&S 1/4 worked in S-1 and S-3 Jun 89 - Jun 92. I was a Marine from Jan 1989 - Jan 1997.

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
