Help support Marines Operations Hastings and gave blood twice at the Charlie Company hospital across the road from our compound. I have many pictures of helos CH 34's? landing with wounded.

MARBLE MTN street sign... For those of us who served near Marble Mountain for some part of our tour, you may be interested in the availability of a copy of the street sign that sits at the back entrance to the site of former Tustin Marine Air Station. The back road to the station is called Marble Mountain and the City of Irvine, CA indicates the road name will continue after the site has been redeveloped. I was trying to get the original sign, but it will stay in its current location. I did, however, manage to get to the company that made the street sign for the City of Irvine and have ordered an exact replica. Just call me sentimental! The cost was $48 plus $10 Shipping and Handling. If you're interested, simply email me and I'll provide the contact information. The company is called SC Signs.

I am researching my father's military service history (WW II). After serving initially with the 8th AAF he eventually ended up in Germany with the 6951 Prisoner of War Temporary Enclosure at Remagen. When the camp closed my father was assigned to the 69th Amphibian Tractor Battalion, a reorganization of the 69th Tank Bn, I think. His discharge papers indicate he was a Sgt., 69th Amphibian Tractor Bn. I can not find any history on this outfit other than when it was taken out of service in March 1946 at Camp Kilmer NJ. Can anyone help me with information about this outfit, if it was attached to any other units and what it was expected to be doing before it was taken out of service? Thanks much.

Please see posting in the AmTrac Forum Section and respond there. Thank you.

I was a 2533 with 1st Amtracs Bn. 3rd MarDiv Camp Schwab Okinawa 1971-72. I served 4 years as a comm man. I can honestly say that the best unit I ever served in was Tracs. "If you ain't Tracs you ain't sh*t." The best USMC CO in my career was Lt. Colonel PJ Saxton. He ran a tight ship and we loved him for it. Semper Fi

I was in country at Cua Viet from 11/66 to 1/68 aboard B-29 after being drafted even though I couldn't pass a hearing test. I remember there being a lot of sand and our tents surrounded by sand bags. When the time came to pull the sand bags we made target practice out of the huge rats. The quiet times disappeared after our tents were replaced with nice buildings with wood floors and SHINY tin roofs. I still remember the night I was on sentry duty covering half the compound when we had incoming from up north. The 155's had zeroed in on the shiny tin roofs. I wish I could remember all of the great guys I served with. A few I recall are: Chief, Sgt Wargow, Pappy, and my dirnking buddy Chuck Ardoin who I wish I could locate. Anyone remember me? Please write. Rob Howard.
