Unit & Year: A&C 1/3 65-66
Comments: Assigned to the last transplacement Battalion to go into Vietnam, L3/5 and we took over the name A 1/3. Participated in operation Mallard in Jan 1966 where some were killed by friendly fire. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who was there at that time. I don't recall what platoon I was with although I believe it was 1st. I have both good and bad memories of the time served with 1/3 and would be willing to share them. I retired from the Marine Corps as a Sergeant Major in December of 1997. What you do with this site is great. I discovered it while visiting the traveling wall. There was a PFC or LCPL Brown in the same platoon who was killed on operation Mallard, I know because I helped put his body in a helecopter in Jan 1966. I don't believe his name appears on the roster. Semper Fi! Grunts forever!

Comments: Hey Marine, I'm here to ask you; "Where will you spend eternity when you die?" I know the popular saying in the Corps is; "Marines never die, they just go to hell and re-group." Hell is no place for a Marine. Hell is a place of torment and agony (Luke 16:19-31). There is a better way to spend eternity Marine. Jesus Christ the Commandant of the universe is looking for a "few good men" for service in His Kingdom. You ask how do I get into His service, I thought you would never ask. All it takes is faith in what Jesus already did for you. That he died for you, went to hell for you (this is the re-grouping), paying your whole sin and hell debt for you, and rose again from the dead, believing, or putting your faith in this will save you from the hell you deserve. You can never lose this FREE GIFT of salvation, it is eternal. This means it is FOREVER. I know that there isn't a Marine out there that would admit he or she was a coward, but in Revelation 21:8 the first word to describe the people thrown into the lake of fire is; "The COWARDLY, unbelieving, abominable......." (NKJV). Are you a coward? Then get on it and believe the gospel of Christ. I write this because I care about the TRUTH of God's Word the Bible and my fellow Marine. The Bible is my marching orders and manual for life. On the cover of my Bible I have put "ORIGINAL ORDERS." This is not a game Marine. Marine souls are at stake. If you would like to contact me for more info write to me at: or Marines of the Cross 425 Center Ave. Adell WI 53001. My time in service was Jan. '78 - Jan. '82 with 3rd Combat Engineers, LSP, K-Bay. And July '83 - June '86 with 1/5 CamPen. Take care Marine. Christ is Semper Fidelis Jeff Moser Former Sgt. USMC Romans 1:16

Comments: We won our part of the war, Marines. The country gave it away in the end. You did your jobs and I have been proud of you for 30 years. There has not been a single day during which I did not pause some time to think of you. I loved you then and I still do. We will never be together again on this earth but we were together then and I would go there with you again. Life has been tough for some of you since we came home. But, you can look back and be proud that you did your duty as Marines. Your peers who ducked their duties are now quite envious that you were better men than they. You will never have to wonder how you would react under fire. You know. They will never know. God Bless. Semper Fidelis.
