Members of India Co, 1st Platoon,  3Rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Mar. Div. Just this past October 24th members of India Co, 1st Platoon, 3Rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Mar. Div. got together (again) in Pennslyvania for our annual platoon reunion. This group is mostly comprised of Marines and many of our Navy Corpsman who served in India Co. 1st PLT. between 1967 and 1968 in our battalion base near Danang. Some also served aboard the USS Valley Forge during our Battalion Landing Team days when we were performing combat missions in the Province of Quang Tri. (near the DMZ) Our platoon has been getting since the late 90?s and it we do include our spouses. We have gotten together in places like Niagra Falls, NY – Columbus, OH – Tennessee and Virginia. This year?s reunion was held at Lt. Richard Anderson?s and his wife Lee?s place on the lake near Dubois. PA. Next year we are planning the reunion for Cape Cod, MA.

When we had our first reunion there were about 8 of us so as you can see, we have been increasing our numbers over the years and we continue to try to locate our brothers and invite them to come. My hope is that maybe a few of our guys will read this and contact one of us so we can let them know what a great time we have and wish to join us. You can list my email address gpodhola0282 [at] charter [dot] net or Lt. Anderson?s at hokey81 [at] yahoo [dot] com. Semper Fi to all.
