    • Have you ever talked with a Marine named Tag Guthrie? He was there on the 8th of May. We’ve been having reunions for 15 years. Are you in touch with Larry Bosko? Let me know if you need more info on any of this, especially the reunion info. Semper Fi

    • Marine,
      Tag Guthrie here what do you need to know about that that fable night. Do you still reside in Austin TX? I know you were wounded on the 23 of March when you went with Third Plt to rescue/retrieve the downed Helo. I will be in Schertz on 6 April 2016. I will provide you as much information as you want to know. in fact I will have one marine you will meet that was wounded with you.

      I can put you in contact with the Amtrac commander and a couple of Marines who did survive that night. In fact I will have a couple of Marines with me who was there. In fact I am visiting four other Marines who was there at Con Thien. I was not there that night because I was on R & R.

      I am on the road for two weeks starting 10 Jan 2016

  7. My name is Larry Whiteside. For any guys coming aboard the assoc. I was at Con Thien in Alpha Co 1/4 about May 6th 1967. I remember the Amtracts. I also remember getting over run. My hole was about 4 or 5 ft away from the Duster that was opened up like a can. I was green as hell. SSgt. Britt was our Platoon Sgt. Cpl. Dan Sword was my squad leader at the time. I’ve met some of the guys at a couple reunions at Charleston SC. and Branson Mo. I’ve had a note from some Marines in Ohio who were in Alpha 1/4. My e-mail address is larry.whiteside@att.net and my phone number is 502-367-6999. I didn’t make the last reunion to Texas been having trouble with legs etc. Fighting the VA Semper Fi. Doc Carl Pulley was our corpsman. He took a bullit out of my back and we went to Japan on R&R.

  8. MY name Bolden, I was in A 1/4, third squad, first fire team from July 68 to March 29, 69. would like info. Have to start some were.

    • Hello Dan, Semper Fi! I was with A Co from April 68 till April 69. Do you remember Pete, or Abner Baird, or Ralph Robinson, or David Proctor, Roscoe Scott, Mahoney, Red Carlton. I went by Clem my name is Rodger Clemons. You should get in touch, I am sitting right now, with a room full of Marines from Alpha Co for our 16th reunion. Most of the guys are from 1968 and 69 a few from 67. If you’d like more info get in touch. Welcome home brother, Semper Fi! Clem

  9. To start Hello, Semper Fi ! My name is Dan Bolden I’ve been in some groups in the past. And they blame the Marine Corps for there problems. The Corp is my family, and home. The Marine is not the problem. I kept to my fire team, The names I remember are Rat, Angel and Womak he was the gun squad leader. Humm ? he was from Samoa. I’ve heard your name . My memory is slow have to jog it. Heard about the reunion too late to go. Like more info Semper Fi ! Dan

    • Dan, I’ll get you name to Larry Bosko. Larry was in weapons during our time in Alpha Co. He keeps the mailing lists and such for our group. I’ll ask him to include you. Do you have a regular e-mail address? Mine is rdclem49@yahoo.com. We just finished our 16th reunion here in Norman Ok. It turned out real good, even though the turnout was a bit small this year. We played some golf, had some great chow, drank a lot, some had other forms of “entertainment”, and all in all had a great time. We decided on Nashville, Tn for next year. I think the dates have been decided on, but I’d just be guessing now. I will find out though and get them to you. This is a group of just Alpha Co Marines. Mostly we are from 68 and 69. We have a couple of guys that were there in 67, I don’t think we’ve ever had anyone from 66. Anyway if you’ll get me your e-mail I’ll get you on the mailing list, and you’ll get the dope straight from the horses mouth next time. Semper Fi Brother, happy to have found another A Co. member. Later.. Clem

    • Bobby Horton was in 2nd squad, 2nd platoon, remember Angel (got hit after we pulled back to set in for the night after fire fight) Womak became squad leader of guns after Humm extended (I think) and put up to company command. Remember Tattoo, Lee and Shorty was in guns, Bobby Dees was my best friend. Hippie, Sanchez, Stevens was in my squad to name a few I remember names. Dan did you get hit in fire fight on Purple Martin??

    • Dan my name is Bobby Horton, I was in 2nd plt. 2nd squad I remember Humm (not sure of spelling) also Rat, (Angel got hit on operation Purple Martin) Womack, Shorty and think Lee was in guns. My best friend was Bobby Dees. Remember Clem was in Dees squad. I carried radio for Sgt Evens for a while and in CP with Don Glass who was KIA on hill 1154 the 2nd time we went back down. If you remember e-mail me at bobby6043@att.net would like to hear from you.

      • Semper Fi Bobby! Please get in touch with me at rdclem49@yahoo.com. We, members of Alpha Co. have been having reunions for 16 years now, we just had our 16th here in Norman Okla. I remember that night on 1154 real well, as do many of the Marines at our reunion. The short round that Killed Sgt. Ski and our 60mm mortar squad when we went into the valley on the March 25. His daughter, the one that had just been born, comes to the reunions. We’d love to have you and Dan Horton come. I sent Dan my e-mail but so far I’ve not heard from him. It’s been great getting to be with so many fine Marines of A 1/4, I’m sure you would feel right at home, we all do. Please contact me!!!

    • Hey Dan. This is Dean Carter, Woody, I was in Umu squad along with Angel, Rat and Womack. We also had Ron Catalano, CAT. It would be good to see you. Give me your email or FB. I have a list of everyone that was in the squad during December to April 68
