The web site is excellent. One might even say it is outstanding. Thanks to Gene Miller's many hours of work, he has presented a site that is enjoyed by many Amgrunts, Tractor Rats, and others alike. New and interesting things are being added all the time to make it continuously interesting.All this takes me back to my tour with 1st Tracks as s-3 beginning 4/5/67 until reassigned as CO of Company A on 9/22/67 until 3/5/68. If you are an Amgrunt and have not begun yourrecord of personal experiences while in 1st Tracks, you must do so in order to be included in the history being written. At the 2004 Amgrunt reunion in Florida, historians from the USMC (Gray Research Center, Quantico, VA), will be interviewing those who have written their accounts for the "Amgrunt History." Don't be left out. Write your personal account. Send it to me as an e-mail(s) or put it on paper as a personal account. If you need the historian's e-mail or mailing address, contact me via e-mail. Semper Fi, Poindexter M. Johnson LTCol USMC (Ret)

I served with A Company Third Platoon from January 1967 to to February 1968. I started in Da Nang, made the landing at Cua Viet and served as an Amtrac Crew Chief and Amgrunt. It's always good to hear from fellow Marines who served during that time.

When I arrived at 1st Amtrac Bn on 9-27-67, I was assigned as Platoon Sergeant, 3rd Plt, Co A and served in that capacity until 5-4-68. Due to the Battalion's dual mission as an infantry combat support unit, the 3rd Plt performed missions as amtrackers and as infantry. I am proud to have served our country as an amtracker and amgrunt in Vietnam. Now at the age of 68 I am enjoying my retirement years playing some golf and daily exercise. Semper Fi. Amgrunts

|Landed at night in Da Nang on April 29th. Then to Dong Ha and started up river April 30th 1968. River was shut down for approx. 2hrs. Then took fire going up to Cua Viet. That was the beginning of the battle of DaDow I believe. I reported to and served 99% of my time with B Co. Maint. Plt. My last 58 days were spent at Rock Pile and Dong Ha with 1st or 3rd Tanks. Can't remember who it was for sure. All I remember is I was a short timer and going home soon. Left Nam around late May 1969.

I was with H&S Co. E-1 platoon from Nov.1967 to Oct.1968. I was a crewman on the E-1's. Also went on a lot of patrols and like everyone else filled my share of sandbags. Remember doing a lot of work at C-4 early in my tour. Rode motorcycles with Dale Brooks to reunion at Quantico last year. Meeting everyone there helped refresh the memory. Semper Fi to all.

I was w/H&S Co. E-1 Plt. from March 68 to March of 69. During that time I served w/the E-1s & was put in charge of special services for a few months then went into Lvt. Plt. H&S Co. for the remainder of my time. Have found one guy on the net that was in our plt. Named Scotty. He and I got together last year and road our motorcycles to Quantico for the reunion. It was a blast, would really like to hear from any of the guys from E-1s during this period or anyone for that fact from 1St Tracs. Was an honor to serve with you all!

I joined the Bn in Sept 66 as the Bn Comm Officer while the Bn was still at Da Nang. I was later assigned the additional duty of H&S Co CO. I made the move to Cua Viet with these two jobs. In the spring of 67 I was assigned as CO of Co A. I kept this job until about 2 weeks before I rotated in Oct 67. I would like to hear from anyone who served with me.
