Just wanted to let all of you know I'm thinking of you on this veteran's day & want to thank all of you for fighting for our freedom. Still hard to believe Kirk isn't here.He was so proud to be part of your unit.

I am attempting ( so far in vain) to contact 1st Battalion 4th USMCwith regards to a presentation of a plaque, the plaque is commemorative of the 1927 uprising in Shanghai Chime where bye the 4th USMC where alongside my regiment The Green Howards. A relationship between the two regiments was established after my regiment corps of drums taught the 4th USMC how to play the fife, a set of which had been presented to the 4th USMC by the American by a Colonel Fessenden, the fifes became known as the Fesenden Fifes, for thier effort the USMC presented the Green Howards with a silver topped Mace that is still used today, the last time USMC were on parade with the mace was in Tripoli Libya on Sept 20th...I am a veteran of the Green Howards, along with Major ( retired ) Roddy Bailey have put together a plaque that I would like to present to 1st Battalion 4th USMC in order to re kindle the relationship, I live in Canada but will be in Florida in Jan / Feb 2013, I am hoping that some arrangement could possibly be made in order that I can make this presentation, kindly e mail me at the address given, Thank you in advance......Ken Agnew
I was a member of 1/4 3rd Mar. Div. I was in Super Squad in 1976. Camp Hansen
My dad, James B. Leigh, served in:
1st Platoon / A Company / 1st Battalion / 4th Marines
(10 OCT 1966 - 27 FEB 1967)
He was wounded on 27 FEB '67, during Phase II of Operation Deckhouse VI. He survived his wounds and went on to raise three kids. He worked as a computer engineer for AT&T for nearly 27 years, before passing away on 2 March 1997, after a brief battle with cancer. I was 16 years old at the time. I may have only had 16 years with him, but it was long enough to learn just how wonderful he was. He taught me to be a proud, patriotic American and to never take the freedoms afforded me by men like you for granted. I would like to hear from anyone who may have known my dad during his time in the Marine Corps.
I was Sgt. Shurr from 1st battalion 4th marines 3rd marine div. I was in Charlie co. 3rd platoon from aug. 1967 to end of July 1968. I was in operation granite and operation loon. I am still looking for staff sergeant Thornton from chicago. Also Glen Weeks wrote in hear 3/15/12 and did not leave his e-mail. I would like to hear from him and a guy by the name of Rufus Young , and any one else who was there then . Great web site . Thanks Dave
