MCB Camp Pendleton

This is a pic at MCB Camp Pendleton (right), circa 9/68 thru 5/69. the war was over for me: E-4 , less than a year, and returnee from RVN. I was with MP Co. MCB. I am an airwinger so this was a new experience. It took me a long way. I “shipped over” and went to MarBar Yokosuka, Japan.My oldest son was born there. He is a preacher now. Next was MCAS Futema. Okinawa. A year later back to MCAS Cherry Point. I heard that airwing Marines are the best DI’s so my last assignment, MCRD PISC! Semper Fi,
