Luis Valdez, Vietnam 1967-68, 1st Force Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Marine Division; two Purple Hearts. Passed away unexpectedly 6/9/17 after a brief, acute respiratory infection that he fought so bravely - all of you fellow Marines would be proud. He retired in the '90s and enjoyed his family, travels, and volunteering. His immediate family looks forward to attending the 2022 reunion in his honor! Semper Fi

Just heard about Glenn Griffin. I met him for the first time at the St. Paul reunion, and immediately felt a bond with him. He was just such a sincere person and gentleman. Like many of you, I was looking forward to seeing him and Sandy in San Antonio. If anyone lived Our Motto, it was Glenn. Semper Fi and Rest in Peace. Bill

I didn't know Glen Griffen in Vietnam as I left at the end of March '66. But as we talked over the years, it turned out we had a couple of things in common: He was a Radioman with Delta , and his CO was my old CommO Capt.jIM Gallagher.
After our Marines careers, we both entered the insurance industry.We both worked for Arthur J. Gallagher ( unbeknownst to one another at the time).RIP Glenn!

Good to find your website. I was an HM3 in 1969 assigned to Bravo 3rd platoon (also Alpha during Doc Smith’s R&R) before assignment to the Regimental Aid Station in 1970.

I see the surname Garcia,as people that are going to the reunion. Any chance does anyone know a Garcia that was with 1-1 in 1966 ? Only know the last name. My great marine buddy wore glasses. Cast of Thousands .

Yes we have a beautiful memorial at Marine Corps Museum. It represents and memorializes all of the 567 Marines and Corpsmen we lost. It was built with funds from donations mainly by 1/1 Vets.

Hello heros! My uncle PFC Phillip Hammons was KIA near dodge city on June 23rd 1969. He served in C Co 1/1. I never got a chance to meet him and don’t have any family left to remember him and his sacrifice. If you served with him and can tell me anything about him I sure would appreciate that. God bless all of you.
