Hello to All,

Please take notice of this information and kindly return a note if you have knowledge of my dad who is as follows. Sgt. Horace F. Leduc USMC 3rd Marine Division, 3rd tank battalion, B-Company, Platoon 345.

He was in the invasion of Guam and Iwo Jima. His Company Commander was Major Holly H. Evens. On Guam He was a torret operator of a Gen. Sherman Tank. The tank may have had the number 5 on it. Also, it displayed the picture of an elephant on the sides. On Iwo Jima He was wounded along with his buddy Marine Donald Tupper. Mr. tupper may have suffered facial injuries and may have been confined to a wheel chair. Both men were hit by a granade within the fox hole they shared. According to my Dad, both men dove for the granade which had landed behind My dad's machanics tool chest. My Dad was 100% disabled as a result of his injuries sustained. I believe Mr. Tupper suffered the same condition. What I've been able to gather Mr. Tupper has past away, as did my dad. However, I have six children and one of which is an Active United States Marine. It would bring us all great pleasure to hear from someone who knew him or maybe relatives of anyone that may have ben in his unit.

Thank You, Mr. Emile Leduc Semper Fi,

To my brothers from 1/3 and especially Bravo company, I really enjoyed our reunion. For you guys still kicking out there you need to make at least one of these in your life. It is very heart warming to be together after all the hell we went through and get a chance to really met one another. As I stated before Bravo 1/3 was the bravest and meanest bunch of Marines that I was ever priviledged to meet and serve with. Semper Fidelis and God Bless each of you and your families.

PS Thanks alot Bill and Doc for all your hard work.

OK its been about 13 years since I've seen anyone from 81's. Hope all you guys are still keeping the everlasting party going. We had some good times and we had some bad times; but the good far outweighed the bad by my accounts. Sometimes I just sit around and think about Kinville, Olongapo, Hong Kong, Pohang, etc. Good Times had by all, well all but a select few married Marines. Anyway if anyone out there can remember this saying which was painted at the top of the ladder well in our BEQ'S; "YOU'VE GOT TO BE HARD CAUSE YOU HAVE NO CHOICE" then drop me a line.

Got here from advice of some Bravo 1/3 guys. One of whom I went to Boot Camp with, Oct 65. Was interested in your Nashville Reunion to hook up with these guys. Going to the Marine Honors Society Tribute in DC, 10 AUG thru 14 AUG 03. Check out www.http://home.bellsouth.net/groups-marine. I'm a helo bubba, H-34 & Huey gunship crew chief. I try to make a few Grunt Reunions so they have a token to rag on.Self sacrifice.Check out POPASMOKE.COM sometime. On the Reunion page, guys from DELTA. Said they were on Operation Buffalo. I'm sure they know there is a book out on that operation called "Operation Buffalo". Got a buddy back in MA that was with, I THINK,Bravo 1/9. One of the guys in the book, DALY, is now a Circuit Court Judge in WI. He wrote my buddy, ANGUS, (Walt Veiera) a letter when the book came out, to tell him about it. They were there, together. Walts got major health problems. Sure wish some of you guys knew him. His tour, 66-67. Going to do a 90 knot, tree top level, finger on the trigger, with safety "OFF",run from DC for R & R. Ronan & Richardson! Have a great Reunion guys! Semper Fi!

Well...where to begin?.....very cool site....I was with 60 mortars in A co. 1/3 Capt. McAdams was our CO.....what a character!!......I remember spending lots of time on mutters ridge, passing out mortar rounds to the platoons, as if they didnt have enough other gear to pack around....One particular incident I remember....we were at an army artillery base for a few days....Capt McAdams was being given a demonstration on an 8 inch howitzer as I remember...he set it up to look like when I wouldnt get inside the bunker when they yelled fire in the hole....he pulled his 45 out and made it appear he shot me...the Army dudes about crapped...he holstered his pistol and told them to continue.....Anyways......great site...great memories of all the Marines I spent time with and entrusted my life too.....will always remember the Viet Nam experience as the best in my life.....SEMPER FI! God Bless

All you old warriors remember what it felt like when we got a box from home? THIRTY FIVE YEARS later I can still remember the three I got, what was in them, and who sent them. Must have meant a lot to me. Have YOU sent one yet? If you don't know anyone there, send one to Cpl. Jonathan McWilliams, India Co., Third Battalion, 23rd Marine Regiment, Weapons Platoon, UIC 42412, FPO AP96426-2412. Jonathan is a machine gunner, team leader. He will see that the packages get spread around to the other grunt squads. Do YOURSELF a favor, and if you haven't sent one yet, get off your butt and do it! Our men are still dying and getting hit. God Bless you and all our brave young warriors.
