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.

Currently serving as the Maintenance Chief for Delta Company 3rd AABn and UDP to Combat Assault Bn (CAB). For all the old trac'ers the RAM/RS AAV is the greatest thing that has happened to our community. We hit the deck running in Kuwait/Iraq with a mixed fleet of straight legs and RAMers. Supply support was practically non-existant and the mechs and crewman used every possible means to keep the gear running.

My name is Jim Jordan. I served in Ist Tracs, Bravo Compnay from 10/66 – 11/67. My Company CO was Lt. Sullivan an Annaplois graduate (a good Marine).

I still remember my fist night at the Funny farm when the 106’s fired up. I hit the deck and lock and loaded. And the other salts laughed!! I was at hill 55 for a few weeks before going back to Bn hdq. On our way to Cua Viet by way of the phillipines and Okanawa. We had to refurbish our tractors at Hansan (I think that was the name of the Camp) and a little training in the “Northern Training Area”. Then back to Nam for Desoto, and some other OPS. Finally, we were the first to open Cua Viet. I emember people like my crew chief Cpl. Vargas and Bohanan (Ithink both were from CA.
Thanks for the web page and Semper Fi!!

I was with 1st Tracs from December 67 til July 69 as a Radio Tech at H&S. I then spent a month at Hq 9th Marines till I rotated.
A lotta familiar names in this book
Don(Tiny)Law
Frenchy Lariviere
Capt. Carlson (My first Commo)
I saw Don's picture of Greenleaf & Vaughters, that brought back some memories. Vaughters gave me a set of his khakis when he rotated I had them till I got out of the Corps.
The reason I found out about this sight is that Tom Williams and I along with 4 other members of his platoon attended a memorial service for Joe Bersh.
I spent a lot of time with the H&S Hogs & E-1's I hope some of Trac Rats still remember me.
Here are some names
Louie the Grape
The Wop
Jay Boss
Ed (Moose)Manning(E-1)

I was a platoonsgt of a platoon of LVT3's trained in the USA and in action in Indonesia fighting the same kind of war you grunts did in Viet. We veterans of teh coy see each other each year in a reunion. We thought that in the 45's the LVT 3 was a top amphib, We used them inland more than 90 km even in mountaineous terrain. Our idea at that time was that a light mortar like the Japs used should have been on board as wel as a flamethrower. I am busy with a rememberanbce album of photographs of our coy and have already more than 250 pictures sampled. A big handshake to all Amphibian tractor personnel and keep them rolling/sailing.

Great Site! I was with Armored co. How 6's in 1962 when it was disbanded. spent 62-63 at Camp Schwab. Then back to Delmar. It is great to see so many marines from that era stay close to the Marine Corp heritage. Keep up the good work.

Semper Fi Brothers, I was with H&S Co. (S-1) from May 67 to Dec 67. I also served as the Bn PsyOps NCOIC for the Northern I Corps Area. CWO2 J. B. Sieverski was the Bn Adj and Gunny Lopez was the Admin Chf. I see Col. Toner still around, Hur Ra. Rember morning rides down Qua Viet River on "E-1's" to go on my courier runs, Night Op's in the tree lines south of the compound, recovering rockets north of the river, C-4 before getting transferred to HqBn 3rd Div Hqtrs, where I took over Div Central Files. Also was in charge of 3rd Div's courier run until I left in May 68. Looking forward to seeing friends. Does anyone remember Sgt Doug Smith, who was Admin Chief of one of the Companies. I spent time with him in Atlanta with the MARTD there. Hope he's still around would like to here from him. Until April 04 GO AMGRUNTS.
