John H Bethea,

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…

James Marshall,

I was at Camp Del Mar with Co. A, 5th Shore Party Bn when the 26th Marines and other elements of the 5th Division were reactivated. We left out of San Diago on APA 45, USS Henrico in July 1966, landed at Okinawa and stationed at Camp Schwab. Later transferred to Co. A, 3rd Shore Party in Vietnam…..Bob 1381 Vietnam 66/67.

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.

Portfolio and Bryson….. I was beginning to think I was the only old corps Redpatcher checking the newsletter. I arrived at Da Nang in 1966. I served with Company A, 3rd Shore Party Bn, 3rd Marine Division. Went to Thuan An, then to Camp Evans north of Hue in December 1966, back to Thuan An, then to Dong Ha until rotating in August 1967. Semper Fi Marine……Bob 1381 Vietnam 1966/1967.

Bob 1381,

Hi
The name is Roy, I arrived in VN in May 67 I was with the Searchlight Plt. I had only been there nine days when I got in my first firefight. In of all places, Freedom Hill, otherwise know as Hill 327. It was supposed to be the safest place around Da Nang. Our Platoon was the most hated by both sides. The only ones that really appreciated us was “Spooky” that awful fantastic killer gunship in the sky. Our searchlights would light up and area and he would just unload on the VC. “Welcome Home” Marine. I’m glad you made it back. Semper Fi ! Once a Marine, Always a Marine

Roy Williams,

Portfolio, we served together with 1st Shore Party fir a few months before you rotated. Sure you don’t remember me but was Cpl then. Sgt Chuck Bryson
