Not sure which Patoon number my father was in but I know he went to Paris Island in 1968 as a Ground Pounder then went in to Supply later on before he retired after 22 1/2 years of serving for this country and serving Vietnam (2 tours). I'll ask him about it later on today when I see him.

Graduated Sept 1, 1967
1992, Ft Benning
1st BN, 50Th Infantry Divison
MCRD SD - 3/77-6/77, Platoon 2028.
Made a deal with recruiter that I would join if I got to go to California(born in Illinois). I got my parents to sign as I was just 17, so no draft card for me. My brother also went to SD a few years earlier and his boot amp was 12 weeks. My boot camp was only 8 weeks as Vietnam needed more Marines. I am proud to say I was Platoon 2004 and we were the Honor Platoon. Since I wasn't 18 yet I could not go with the rest after boot, but went DLI(Defense Language Institute) in Monterey, Calif. Vietnamese 5 days a week, 8 hours a day for three months. Arrived in Vietnam late April early May and hooked up with Foxtrot Co.2/26 3rd Marine Division. They had just come off of Khe Sahn a few weeks earlier. Semper-Fi.
