Great to find an AmTrac site. Served with 2nd then renamed 4th Armoured Amphib, FMF at T.I. In San Francisco from 63 to 69. Hard to find anyone who was a Ramp Rat back then, much less who knew what a How 6 was. Good luck to all. Semper Fi

I arrived in Cua Viet Sept 20th, 1968 two days after I turned 18. I used to drive the skimmer boat up and down the river to Dong Ha at all hours of the day in my spare time. Probably gave most of you guys a ride. Towards the end before we moved out the Sargeant Major let me and Loper paint shark teeth on the boat and got us a pair of water ski's. Semper Fi.

ALSO
The NVA had another flame thrower. An NVA soldier tried to fry me as we were pulling back to join the rest of the Company. Fortunately (for me) it malfunctioned and, as he and I looked at each other with eyes as big as grapefruit, L/Cpl Gerry Demers (the only other guy from NH, shot him with his M14. THAT was a beautiful sight!
Gerry said, "Hey New Hampshire". I responded in kind and gave him a thumbs up. Gerry and I spent many nights together in the "desert" and in the mud. ENOUGH! I am rambling.

Now I HAVE explored this site. WOW!! Talk about an emotional rollercoaster!!
THANK YOU for the photo of "YATESY". I still can feel hs hands clutching my shirt as he told me, "ANDY, they won't let me stay! The lifers are making me go back to the world. They won't let me stay home!" I told him that perhaps they would come to their senses, that everything would work out. That was the last conversation I had with him. He was a true HERO and the first man who made me understand the difference between a "lifer" and a "Career Marine". He was clearly the latter. Now I will be able to show my sons a photo of the man they have heard so much about. I am certain that they have wondered about this man, the mention of whose name brings tears to their Dad's eyes. I am also sorry to hear that Lt. Head has left us. He got me through Jan 20th by telling me (as I as experiencing a "melt down", saying, I'm gonna die, we're all gonna be killed." which seemed a reasonable concern at the time, shortly after we had reached what was left of 3rd Plt.) "The hell you are! "'Cause, if they get YOU then they're gonna get ME, and they ain't gettin' me 'cause I' SHORT!!"
Later in the day, when the two Army Hueys arrived and were firing rockets over us Lt. Head started to melt down, saying, "Oh my God, now they're hittin' us with rockets!!" I looked up, saw the Hueys, and punched Lt. Head in the chest. I said, "Sir!" and pointed to the Hueys. He then said, "Thank God", regained his composure, and once I established comm with the choppers, took my handset and started the process of getting our dead and badly wounded out of there in 3rd Platoon's Amtrac.
I've read Major Johnson's account of that day and I certainly agree that Lt. Head was "a hell of a man".
THANK YOU! SEMPER FI!

Cpl. Park, we all knew him as Doug or "PAPPY" in 'nam. Doug served with H&S Company Maintenance Platoon May 66 through June 1967 as a 2142. He was famous for his welding abilities and kept many a trac in the action. Doug was at DaNang and Cua Viet and out in the field welding the crack of dawn.
DOUG IS NOW BATTLING SERIOUS CANCER AND WILL BE OPERATED ON THE SECOND TIME ON MARCH 1,2004. HE WAS THERE FOR US, NOW ITS OUR TURN. TAKE A FEW MINUTES AND WRITE HIM A LETTER OR SEND HIM A CARD AND LET HIM KNOW WE ARE THERE WITH HIM.

I reported to Camp Pendleton in May,1966 when RLT 2/26 was being formed. Co.A 5th Amtrac Bn.was made up of quite a few drafties.Went to VietNam at DaNang and was stationed south of Marble Mountain past the Leper Colony.We were there for about 6 months and while there made many trips back past Marble Mountain to go to DaNang for supplies. We used to catch fire from the leper colony, but was glad that they couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.Went up to the DMZ after 6 months as a Sgt. where we parked our tracs and became grunts.I returned home in May of 1967 . 1st Lt.J.D.Heller was our platoon Leader,SSgt.R.D.Bateman was our Plt Sgt.Up at the DMZ we still used our beloved tracs to patrol the river.Had a 50cal.sandbagged on top for fire power.That was one great machine gun!I was a section leader and would take 5 tracs out to patrol .Had a 106 recoiless rifle on one trac. Once ,a couple of VC hid behind a water buffalo by the water edge. The gunner shot the 106 clean through the buffalo and detonated beyond it. Needless to say,the water buffalo didn't make it either! I hope everyone in my unit made it back safe.God bless them all. Trackers were the best.Did you ever drop a track, and not have just about everyone jump into the mud to help get the track back together? Never! Tight bunch,those 1833's.
