Comments: I was a hospital corpsman with the 75mm Recoilless Gun Plt until wounded 12/07/50.
I returned as replacement (1st Med Bn) late in March, 1951 but it was not the same--it just was not the 75's! The two years that I spent attached to the FMF provided me with memories and frindships that were bonded in combat. They endure to the present and are priceless.

Comments: Friendships formed in combat are far more meaningful than those formed anyplace else. Shared experiences have deeper meaning to all of us. Anyone in Anti-Tank Company, 5th Marines during those dates give me a holler via e-mail. We have a nice group going now; however, we want all who qualify to come on in. I am now retited after 30 years in the Corps[1949-1979]. Let me hear from you.

The book is also covering the great operations of you 5 th. Marines A/T plus other supporting arms. Interested in Lukes Castle and the name of a marine sgt, who was KIA directing a tank at that place. F-22)/ Hill 812 has a story all its own. Hope to have some feedback.
