     On August 20, 1968 I entered M.C.R.D. San Diego, 
California.  I was in 1st Bn., Co. B., Platoon 1067.  
We finished I.T.R. and B.I.T.S. and left on "Boot 
Leave" on Christmas Day.  I would have enjoyed my 
leave except for a bad case of the flu.  I got 
extended leave for being sick and by the time I got
to staging, everyone I went through boot camp with
was gone.  I would like to hear from some of those 
guys from Platoon 1067.  I only ran across three 
while I was in Vietnam and have always wondered 
where everyone else went.
     I ended up in Da Nang in 3rd Bn., 7th Marines, 
1st Mar. Div.  My 1st company was Kilo Co. I was 
with Kilo from sometime in February 1969 to the end 
of May, throughout Operation Oklahoma Hills, which 
ended on May 29th.
     I took R&R in Hawaii the 2nd week of June and 
when I returned I found I had been transferred to 
H&S Co. and was sent to scout school.
     The only names I can remember from Kilo Co. are:
2nd Lt. Jaehne, Jose "Jo-Jo" Jimenez (Dec'd), John 
"J.B." Bosser (Dec'd), "Chief" Ototivo (whom I have 
spoken with lately), Norris(?), Bennett(?), Reynolds(?)
and Huffer (who also took rabies shots in April, 
when I did).
     I was assigned to Mike 3/7 after scout school 
which was around July 1969 and stayed with them until 
Nov. 1969. The names I remember from Mike 3/7 are:  
Capt. Stanat, 1st Lt. Edwards(?), N.I. Throckmorton 
(sniper), Kehoe (?)(spotter), Michael Hudson (F.O.), 
"Denny", Buddy West, John Roller, Cpl.Smith(who 
tripped the booby trap  that put us all[Buddy, John, 
Me, and some others] in the  hospital).  There was 
also a guy from Tacoma Washington by the name of 
Spivey and a radio operator whose name was Shorthill.
     I'd like to hear from anyone that was in Kilo or 
Mike 3/7 from February to November 1969 that I might 
remember.  There are things I can't remember and way 
too many things that I can't forget.
     If you are out there guys, E-mail me.  
I need to fill in some blank spots about my tour 
and could sure use the help.
