Hello, Its been a long time since I first drove an AmTrac. I was seventeen and my high school coach enlisted many of us while we were still is high school. That was in 1950 before the North Koreans cross the 38th parallel.
The unit which I joined was the 19th Bat. reserve in Tampa Florida. I wondered if there is any members of that group still around.

Help. Was this unit, the 1st AmTrac Bn, referred to as the 1st Armored Amphibian Bn, Fleet Marine Force, during the Korean War? I am researching my late father-in-law's service record which states that he departed San Diego, 18 Aug 1950 for Kobe, Japan on orders from the 1st Armored Amphibian Bn, FMF. I could also use help with his MOS, 1800. What are the qualifications for an 1800 MOS? Basic AmTrac Training? Any help with the History of the 1st Armored Amphibian Bn would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.

De Los Santos, Glad to see that you are still above ground. Maybe we could have lunch on me the next time I hit the west coast. I met with Streck last time at dennys on 74.

Just returned to the Guestbook for another look. I was in Comm. with A Co. May '65 in Chu Lai, then up in Danang by Hill 327 for awhile, then went back to Chu Lai, and back to Danang in '66. I would like to hear from anyone from A Co.; also if anyone remembers Eddie from Kentucky who was killed in a car crash in 1966 after we all rotated home. He went back to 2nd Amtracs; I went to 10th Marines. Some of the guys from 2nd Amtracs came over to 10th Marines to let me know about Eddie. Don't remember his last name- lots of dim memories of names, but lots of great memories of being in Tracks. Would love to reconnect with any of the Marines that I served with in 'Nam. Also for any info on a Marine whose last name was Shehee (I think) in our Comm section in Chu Lai. Semper Fi!
