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....

I was married to Billy Basalyga for 24 years..most of you probably know that he died in 11/01 from a liver transplant gone bad...I'm really excited about coming to the reunion..I missed the last one so this should good. I've stayed in touch with Richie Haeg, not as much with ron Barron and I've met some of you other guys at the '88 reunion.. Great website and I'll see you all in Tampa. Semper Fi!!

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!
