As a corpsman of "C" company 1/3, during operation Mallard in Jan 1966, I totally disagree with the number of casualties credited to the operation. On the night that Corporal Ueli, who was point man of the entire battalion on night move, was killed, I personally treated 8 or 9 casualties caused by our own fire.

Just wanted to say that the web site looks fantastic. My uncle was with Alpha Company, 1/3 Marines on Bougainville, Cape Torokina, WW II. He was KIA when he took out a Japanese 75 mm gun emplacement. It has been said that he was the first marine from Alpha Co. to receive the CMH. I can not verify that, but I am proud of him and every marine that has served and is still serving. I worked with the 4th Marine HQ in New Cumberland, PA from 1997 to 2002. Thank You all for serving. Semper FI!

Let me be the first to report that the Milwaukee reunion was great! We had a good 1/3 representation and met some new guys as well. The Chapter was once again able to provide a $500 contribution to the Association Scholarship Fund and all other activities made us a few bucks for the "kitty" as well. Milwaukee did an excellent job and put on quite a show. Each year, as more and more new guys come, friendships are made, memories strengthened, and the band of brothers grows. This year was no exception. In fact, during the closing minutes of Saturday's banquet, one man from my company came up to our table and was immediately recognized by some of us sitting there! Shouts, ooraahs, and yes, even a few tears presented themselves. This is what it's all about, gentlemen. I trust that the 1/3 Chapter will continue to grow during this coming year. If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact us. Semper Fi, Alan.

This site is beyond outstanding!!! I have been in contact with several of my Lava Dog brothers as a result of your endeavors. If anyone knows of any other Weapons Company Marines who are still causing hate and discontent, please drop me a line. I am proud to say I have served with some of the finest grunts ever to walk this Earth. I was in Iraq when our brothers from 1/3 landed and wanted to be on the airfield when they arrived to take on the mission in Lava Dog style. Instead I worked hard to keep the planes that supported them on station and close by if needed. Semper Fi to all here, and God bless us all.
