I had just got to DaNang and a week later we moved up to Qua Viet. I remember getting shelled 3 days after we landed, and we didn't have much in the way of bunkers for safety. I later was sent to a single platoon on an island off of Hue. Was there at Tet and later returned to Qua Viet just in time to experience the fuel dunp getting hit. I remember it burned for days. I was in H&S motor pool. Sorry I don't remember any names. Great bunch of guys.

I was with 3rd Trac's in 66-67 at Chu Lai. After Gunny O'Rourke moved on, I took over as platoon sergeant of the
E-1 platoon in H&S Co. We had a great bunch of damn good Marines over there. Originally, I was trained (who remembers Camp Del Mar back then at Pendleton (ha))with the How-6's. Just before 'Nam they put them in mothballs at 29 Palms. I still have a great photo that was taken of the How-6 Company just prior to being disbanded in 1962. That's when I went into the E-1's. Great experiences back in those days. I think all the time of Charles (Nicky) Nicastro, a corporal and a friend, who was killed on his first mission in-country. He wasn't supposed to go overseas, since he had only six months left on his enlistment. A truly painful irony. I recently heard from Lt. John Lane, who was our plt. leader for a while over there. He was a "mustang" and retired as a captain. A lot of water under the bridge since then, but I still hold all those memories very, very close. Semper Fi.....

During Vietnam I was the Commanding Officer of 1st Armored Amphibian Bn, 11th Marine Regiment from 1 Sept 68 till 15 May 69 when our command was cadred. We had six LVTH6's with 1st Tracs at Cua Viet as their primary artillery support as will as infantry support in the area. From 3 Sept 78 to 3 June 80 I was the Commanding Officer of 3d Assault Amphibian Bn, at Camp Pendleton. Had a many great tractor rats in the Battalion, Lt. Col. Don Head, and Col. Jack Mack to mention only a couple officers. So many exceptional SNCO's the list would go on a long time. After selection for Colonel, our family was sent to Hawaii and I became the G4 FMF Pac. After a second career with BHP Petroleum Hawaii, and a third as a counselor at Kahuku High and Intermediate School, we have settled down in Hawaii. Anyone visiting please get in touch. PJ Saxton and David Steffanson are here and we are in constant touch. Semper Fi

We gone down the path a ways from AmGrunts. Hope you all are doing well! As some of you know I was with A Co. in the Comm. group with Hugh Connelly, SSgt. John C. Yates, and a bunch of other great guys. We spent time with every Plt. in A Co. so sorting out names and faces after 35 yrs. is very tough. It probably doesn't matter any more anyway, none of us could pass for that 20 something Jarhead anyway. As Hugh pointed out in his entry we had some very bad times but we also had some very good friends. I'm in the L.A. area and up for a visit if any of you get out this way.
