Was radio operator, 1st Amtrac's, 3rd Mar.Div., H & S Co., Communications Platoon, 5/66 till 7/67.
Went on most operations (shortage of radio operators) also carried PRC-25 for foot, ambush and recon patrols.
I have some Super 8mm movies that I will try and get turned into DVD of some operations involving mine clearance operations using LVT's.
Would like to hear from anyone who was there at the same time.

I went through P5 school in Jan 67, Went in country March 67 was in the 4th Platoon (Adams Family) A Co. 3rd Amtracs attached to 1st Amtracs until 1st MarDiv came up from Chu Lai. I arrived in country with Can Roman and John Ferrante. After leaving Nam in Apr. 68 was stationed with 5th Amtracs, the Amtrac Platoon, Trac Veh Co., SDT at Quantico. 71 went back to Westpac with the 1st Amtrac Bn and deployed with BLT 1/9. Came back in 72 to 2nd Amtrac Bn. Did a med cruise, the last with P-5's. When we got home they were all gone and the new P-7's were on the ramp. We thought the P-5's were old when we pushed them around Nam. I remember watching the P-7's in the turning basin at DelMar while they were being tested and being amazed at their water speed and manueveribility. Now those oldtimers are in country Iraq and supporting Marines. WHAT WE DID BEST.
SEMPER FI Tractor rats.

It is unlikely that the sea story about Steve McQueen and the AmTrac are true. For more information on this story or to add your own comments, go to the Forum Section of this web site and look under the section “Other AmTrac Forums”.

I received my training as a tractor rat in 1966. I remember while in training at Courthouse Bay, Camp LeJeune, there was a story that circulated about actor Steve McQueen having served in an amphibious outfit. They said that he was busted seven times and spent time in the brig. On one such occasion he was alledged to have painted an amtrack pink and drove it down the beach near the New River inlet. Does anyone have any evidence about that incident? I want to believe that it is true, because it is such a good story. But, I don't want to repeat it if it is just another Marine Corps myth.

For Ray Byers....
You're describing the first scene at Cua Viet in Ron Kovic's movie. Kovic claims to have accidentally shot one of his patrol members. See my email, it's described in the Command Chronology pretty much like you describe. Happened Oct 16,1967.

I was a corpsman at cua viet. Does anyone remember a patrol when we were pinned down on the beach south of Cua Viet after running into some NVA's at the treeline on the beach. It was dusk and swift boats came and sent up flares to illuminate the beach. Some tractors came down the beach to help us. One of our men was accidently shot and killed by one of our men. Does anyone know the name of the marine killed? This happened in 67 does anyone know the date? Doc Ray HM2

I was in 1st Tracs 7 Sept 67 - 8 Oct 68 as a 2533 in H&S and Alpha companies. It is great to come here and find out that one was a very small part of a very great unit and a tremendous bunch of Marines. Other commo names not mention here are: Wishard, Rood, Ybarra, GySGT Stafford, Quinones, Kruizinga, Ralph Kerr, Denny Ragan, JR Bland, "Unfortunate John" Kirby, Bobby Schomp. I do remember lots of you guys - Semper Fi
