Looking to see if you had any information going back to 1965, Operation Starlight.
My wife's uncle, Cpl Rowland Joseph Adamoli, died in a VC-ambush firefight on Van Tuong peninsula, as the crew chief in the 3rd AmTrac in a resupply column. Per a letter from someone in his unit to my wife's cousin, his unit then is identified as 1st AMTRAC Battalion, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Amphibious Force. He took the first duty at the hatch to identify where the fire was coming from, and got hit. This then allowed another hero, L/Cpl. R. S. Pass, to further identify the enemy and fire back. The action of both men saved the lives of the rest of the men in the AmTrac.
I was hoping to find more information, perhaps what platoon, who the driver was, and some of the other personnel in the column. All heroes as far as I am concerned.

I remember the amphibious vehicle museum at Camp Pendleton on Rattlesnake Canyon Rd. I saw that they relocated the museum to Camp Del Mar but was wondering what happened to the larger prototype amphibious vehicle that were at the museum or if anyone has pics of them?

Im Jeffrey PIzarro & im currently trying to do research on your units interaction with the Philippine Marines in 1958 & in 1975 as Im currently writing a book on the early Filipino Amtrackers. In EXERCISE STRONGBACK in March 1958, at Dingalan Bay Philippines, a COLBOWLES USMC & CAPT RICE, CO B Coy 1st Amtrac Bn turned over to the then Philippine Marine Bn 6 units of the LVT3C variant most likely from your unit. In 1975, a new batcjh of Filipino Amtrackers trained at Subic Naval Base w/ elements of your unit ( a Sgt Brown was the only name recalled). Im particularly interested if you may have details of the first 6 amtracs transferred (serial numbers, other details) & info relevant to that event & also any detail related to the training received in 1975; if any of your members who may have pictures of either event (or any other event like exercises and amphibious landing exercises) that they are willing to share id greatly appreciate it; thanks!

Served in Vietnam with 1st Division Armored Amtracks (LVTH6) from Dec. 1967 to Jun 1969 in Da Nang, Hill 47, Cua Viet and Hoi An (advisor with Korean Marines). Instructor Track vehicles school July 1969 to Feb 1970. On Feb 1, 1968 I was a crewman on two LTVH6 vehicles waiting in Da Nang for a flatboat ride overnight to Cua Viet. NVA attacked us at the Navy loading docks. It was the beginning of the TET offensive. We fought them all night and had them on the run by morning Feb 2, 1968. By noon we had them trapped in an open area not far from the airport. Most surrendered and we turned them over to the ARVNs.
