    • 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.
