I was on recovery boat for amtrak crewmen that sank in Danang Harbor. The Amtrak came off the LSD and went to bottom of bay near the Jap cruiser sunk there. Our LCM8 opened ramp and divers brought the crew up and we maade sure they got home. Still have nightmares of that day. Watched it go down and then recovery ops.

Semper Fi and Welcome Home Brothers...I was driving one of those LCM-8's on the Cua Viet river during Tet of '68 and have to thank you all for the great security you provided us with. I stood watch at night on the perimater with a few of you when you were worn out and stretched thin. My boat took a near miss from one of those re-wired bombs in tha chanel and we were passing the 1475 when she got the hell shot out of her just short of the Dong Ha Ramp. If any of you are the remains of that Company (all 3 of you) that were put in against Chuck on the north side just shy of Dong Ha City, that we volenteered to extract, hope you are still alive and doing well brothers. I did 3 tours on the rivers north of Da Nang and am pretty well messed up now, was in country from 65 to (July) 68.
We leaned on you Marine AmGrunts for our security so we could do our job and get the stuff moved up river to help keep things going and others alive. It was a bad time but...a PROUD time for we who served.
Thank all of you and Semper Fi!

I served with 1st amtracs A company 4th platoon from Nov. '65 to April '67. I was with 3rd amtracs in ChuLai August '65 to Nov.'67. Our platoon was sent from ChuLia to Danang area right after Operation Blue Marlin and was then changed from 3rd tracs to 1st Amtracs A company with several tractors having holes welded up from operation Starlight. We had to stencil over our tractor numbers showing we had changed from 3rd to 1st. Just a bit of history. I saw a message by Mike Adair on this siteand I served with him. I also noticed a picture taken by Allyn Brown that had some of my old platton buddies in it. Larry (Red)Southard, 'Grandpa" Jones, and a couple of others that names escape me now. Also my two crewmen when I left Richard Blatnick and John Forbes.Would like to hear from any of those guys or others who served with me in the fourth platoon.

With 1st Amtracs, B Co. 9/67 to 10/68 2533 radioman Foward Observer. John Yates was my Comm Chief. Just found your site. Great! Would love to hear from Doc Leasher, John Anderson, Jeff Deforce, Paul Bato, Edgar Casey, and anyone else who remembers me. I came to the unit with Ron Kovic of all people and I guess everyone knows about his Born on The Fourth of July deal. He lives in Redondo Beach CA. and I doubt he will contact any of us. Does anyone know what became of Major Stephenson? (Spelling?) B company CO after Major Burger.

My brother-in-law was Thomas Soliz, radio operator who served with 1st Amtrac. He was KIA when I was 14. Met my sister before shipping out (she was also a Marine). She has never been able to talk about his death since she was awarded his Navy Cross. Tom never got to meet his daughter Linda and she has little information about his service and death. She is, of course in her 30's now and I have volunteered to try to find out some info about the incident. My other brother-in-law sent me to this page (another Marine-Retired after full service and two tours) and said that there might be someone out there who remembers....
