I arrived in Danang in May 1966. Stayed at Camp Tien Shaw when I was in town. I was suppose to be in the Navy but at many times I wondered. MAV-V assigned me to Special Services. At times I worked for Gen Lew Walt 3rd MAF. I have nothing but great respect for the Marines that I worked with…

There is no party like Shore Party . I served with 1st. Shore Party from Pendleton to Nam from 1963 to June 1967. In 63 we were called 1st. Landing at Camp Del Mar. Then in 1964 Shore Party was reactivated for Nam. Semper Fi brother.
