I was a Corpsman assigned to D 1/4 3rd Mar Div
from Nov 68 till I was wounded on 3/21/69. Which then I was taken to 3rd Med Bn, then to USS Repose. When released back to duty, I was assigned to 3rd Med Bn at Quant Tri. Left Viet
Nam in Nov 69.
I was first assigned into the bush to D 1/4 in Nov 68 I replace Doc Roger Marcum.
Other Corpsman in our unit was Tom Swift and then David Dwayne Overstreet.
Would like to hear from any of the Marines that
remember me or one of my fellow Corpsman. It was an honor and privilege serving with the Marines.
I served with1-4 Delta co early 69 until pull out to Okinawa.
I'm in touch with Bobby (little man) Saldona. Once was in contact with Kenny and Taylor of NY.

Hub Cap from Baltimore,

Would like to hear from anyone, if there's reunioni information please contact me...
On this date 50 years ago the men of the 1st & 2nd Bn. 4th Marines 1st. Marine Brigade began landing on the shores of Viet Nam. Remembering being loaded down with 2 ammo boxes and 2 mortar rounds on my pack the deck hand from the Valley Forge had to push me put into the U34, I laugh at it today but we were all afraid of what was to come, luckily the landing was completely unopposed, regrettably it would not stay that way for long. Whatever it takes. Semper Fi
