I flew out of El Toro on April 24, 1967. I had been trained as a Sniper at Camp Horno on Camp Pendleton. We ended up landing at Da Nang where I and a couple of my fellow Snipers were assigned to Headquarters Company, Sniper Platoon, 1st Marine Regiment. We were located just south of Da Nang. We traveled in pairs and my partner and I were assigned to 1st Battalion and they sent us out to what I call the Mud Flats and attached us to Charlie 1/1.

As it turned out I was assigned to Charlie several times during my tour. In fact I was with Charlie on Operation Medina which has been memorialized in a book called "Lions of Medina". I was in Hue during Tet and my last operation was sweeping Highway 9 from Dong Ha to Khe Sahn.

I won't be able to attend the reunion due to medical reasons.

it was 52 years ago yesterday that due to circumstances I first carried the radio as a squad radioman for 1st squad 1st platoon Delta 1/1. It was during the bloody operation Swift in Que son Valley in support of 5th Marines. The NVA were fire team rushing us across a paddy until air support and our fire suppressed them. In the early morning pre-dawn hours my squad was selected to leave the perimeter and rescue a wounded Marine, thought for sure it was going to be last day on earth. We succeeded in rescue and from that day until May 26th 68 I had the radio on my back.

Served with H&S 106s from Sept 6, 1966 to Dec 22, 1968. Was attached to all the line companies at one time or other. Hope to meet anyone who hasn't been to any other reunion.

I returned from Nam in May ‘71 with Fox 2/1. I served later at Lejeune with Roy Fewell, who was with Alpha 1/1, pretty much sure in ‘69. Roy passed in 2001, complications of AO. I have found his daughter and she hopes she might find someone who remembers her father from Nam. Thanks for your time and welcome home brothers.

I was with Delta-2 all of 67. Looking forward to seeing guys I served with.

SSGT Williams. I hope our company liked the two new radios we borrowed from an idle Army Jeep. I also remember when you gave me a satchel full of thermite grenades and ordered me to get rid of the equipment if we got overrun.
It's been over 50 years and I look forward to meeting you once again at the reunion.

Hello and Semper Fi to all. This new web-site is outstanding. As a few are aware Ive been fighting cancer and unfortunately don't have a great prognosis regards the future and longevity. In spite of this I plan on attending our reunion in October. I plan on fighting this as long as I can. In fact heading for Vegas, then Hawaii and the Seattle next month for Khe Sahn Vets reunion. Hope to see some of you there if not definitely in San Diego.
Delta 1/1 Company radioman 67-68.
