Like my fellow Marines on this list, I served with the Best of the Best 1967-68. There is much I could write... but the following by President Theodore Roosevelt said it all:
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Served August 1968 to April 1969. I have fond memories of my unit while in Nam from August 1968 to April 1969. The one individual who stands out most to me is Sgt. Blunt who was my squad leader. One September 30, 1968 I was shot in an ambush. Being a radio operator, I was an obvious first target. Sgt. Blunt, knowing we were under fire, told me to get up and get going, not realizing I was just shot!!! I can't say enough for the individuals who came to assist me under serious enemy fire!!

Since Fox 2/5 started having reunions back in 1989, we have only missed one. Hopefully we won't miss any others. I challenge all of you to come to one reunion, experience the great camaraderie and then tell us it wasn't one of the best experiences of your life. My wife and I look forward to each and everyone of them as a chance to revisit some very dear friends, our Fox 2/5 family. During the past reunion in Nashville, the guest speaker who was a veteran of Iwo Jima said that he rarely sees this many people at division reunions and here it was just one company. It speaks well as to the planning that goes into it by the current group of officers.

looking forward to the F/2/5 reunion in San Diego this summer.
Oorah Devil Dogs,
What a reunion! It was successful in so many ways: old friends and new ones having a good time for three (plus) days; great sponsorship and hotel (thanks, Donna and Sam Henderson); and fine progress on Foxs book, Battlelines.
Im writing to profusely thank all the men who so willingly helped Tiffany and I with the book. We covered all eras of the war in which Fox participated, less 1970-71 which well address at the start of 2005. Tiffany and I interviewed various sets of Marines in 5 four-hour sessions. I can now assure you that we have 90% of the material we need. I am hoping that we are finished writing and editing the history of Fox by next February or March. By that point well merely have the publisher to deal with. Bottom line is: if the book isnt available for you to read in June, I am going to be mighty upset.
For more on the book, look at the web site: www.battlelinesbook.com. There you fin comments made by various folks who had been given an early draft about the July 1968-January 1969 era. (Thats the time I was with Fox. I did that first to gain the feel of writing a historical fiction.) Tiffany does the heavy editing--in some cases rewriting. I have sent drafts copies of chapters to others who served in the same era to insure the storyline is valid. So were moving along. Updated 11Nov04

My name is Franklin D. McArthur Jr, and I am the Founder and President of the Pfc. Dan Bullock Foundation, Inc. Pfc Bullock 15, was the youngest American Serviceman killed in the Vietnam War. He was only 14 years old when we graduated from boot camp on December 10, 1968. According to pentagon officials he may be the youngest KIA since World War I. I founded the Bullock Foundation because we were friends, and I wanted to try to correct a miscarriage of justice. Pfc. Dan Bullock lied about his age to enlist, and everyone seem to be more concerned about him lying than dying. But that does not change the facts, and the facts is, he was a United States Marine, and he was killed fighting for this country. Even now 30 years after his death, his official birthday is still being published as December 21, 1949. After he was killed on June 7, 1969, his real birth date which was December 21, 1953 was exposed to the public (ref: New York Times, June 13, 1969, Page 1, Col. 7). I've petitioned the Commandant, Congress and the President to award him the MOH. The Citizen Stamp Advisory Committee to award him a Commemorative Stamp. I submitted a proposal to the Great Blacks in Wax Museum, to erect a wax figure. Mr Steve Piscitelli, noted sculpture and former member of Fox 2/5, will be sculpturing a bronze statue. The Pfc. Dan Bullock Foundation, Inc is in need of financial support, any financial support or other assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated. For further information contact my website at: www.warhero-t-shirts.com or call 1-856-802-6592.

I served with H&S/HST.1/1 RVN.69 to 70. I met Doug Bradstreet in 1990. We have become very goog friends over the years and would like to hear from those who remember "Mad Dog"and would like to get a message to him. This is a great site Thanks. Semper Fi.
I speak fluent Vietnamese, and have traveled back to Vietnam from Hanoi to the Mekong Delta 4 times and have spent over 6 months there during the last 3 years. It is now a wonderful place with no sign of the war. Very inexpensive, friendly and as far as I am concerned it should be on everybodies list of places to go and things to do. Take your wives, they will love it.

I served in China at the time of the Communist take over in 1946. I was in the 1st MP co. 1st Mar. Div in Tientsin. In 1947 most of the division was shipped to Guam to avoid further hostilities with the Commies. I was assigned to F/2/5 First Marine Brigade. The Division was downgraded to a Brigade at that time, not to regain Division status until the Korean War. The service on Guam was quite mundane. The towns, Agana and the like, were out of bounds. Spent most of our time at the Company's slop chute, feeling sorry for ourselves and drinking that ten cent 3/2 beer. The beer was bad, but the company was good.

Corpsman with Fox 2/5 December 68 through July 69, when I went to 1st Med. in Danang. Remember the mountains well, especially our walk up hill 10,000 (at least it seemed that high) and a huge number of malaria cases. Arizona territory (crossing the river on amtracs). GoNoi Island (not a fun place), and Liberty Bridge. Went to Desert Storm with a Fleet Hospital but got to visit with many friends attached to Marine units. Retired with 30 years in 1997 as Master Chief Hospital Corpsman. (Added 31Aug03)
I was in F 2/5 from April 1996 till April 1998. Before that I served 2 years in security forces at Yokosuka Japan. What an honor it is to have served with such a great group of Marines, in such a highly decorated unit. Every day is a blessing and I am proud to have served our country. I have great respect for everyone who has served in the military. At one point in their life they wrote a blank check to the US government for any amount, up to and including their life. If anyone knows me from back when we served feel free to contact me. My personal/ business website is "www dot RMATA dot com". May God bless you, your family, and the Marine Corps!

shipped home October 6th 68 . Spent time at Philly naval hospital before being
discharged Feb.69. Double leg amputee. I have really enjoyed the reunions and IM
looking forward to San Diego..hope to see yall there..bring your clubs.
Reunion in San Diego in July was great. I really enjoyed Playing Golf with Colonel Dave Brown and his daughter Tiffany. General downs beat me by a stroke and complained about his bad back or knees or some such excuse. I had 4 balls out of bounds. That was my excuse. So now we are even. I beat the general by two in Wisconsin . The best time was the chance to play with my Ol buddy Sergeant Major Eddie Van Valkenberg..a true gentleman...Another highlight of the trip was the banquet and a chance to meet General O.K. Steel. We also had the pleasure of entertaining the current commander of fox company . I could go on and on. It was such a good time. Hope to see you all in San Antonio for the next reunion.
Welcome home brothers. I have been to most of the reunions and loved it all. However, there was One exception. In I believe 89 or 90 I went to the reunion but did not tell anyone. I just sort of hung around for the christening of the Hue City, got drunk and drove home to Houston. I was scared at first but now I look forward to the time when I can sit down and talk with guys from 35 years ago that I did not even know make it back alive. In our brief time here on this world, we as members of fox company are blessed with the opportunity to find our true humanity through our friendships and fellowship with the finest group of men I have ever known. Keep the Faith, Rod Gurganious L/CPL Retired.
I was with F 2/5 when the unit left Camp Pendleton in January
1966. After training in Okinawa, we arrived in Chu Lai, Vietnam around March. We
settled in on Hill 69 until the unit was moved to the DMZ in August for
Operation Prairie. After the campaign ended we moved to Dong Ha at which time
the remaining 7 to 10 of us original grunts were transferred to a unit I can't
even recall to spend our last 30 days with this group headed back to Okinawa. We
never made it as we "didn't fit" and had too much fight left in us and
were subsequently reassigned to another unit back in the bush for our remaining
time. We did survive that last month holding a bridge and supply route to 2/5 in
An Hoa. I remain best friends with Frank R. Castro, also from the original unit,
who is now living in Las Vegas.
After a couple of somewhat shaky first years back, my life has been wonderful. I am only now starting to turn my mind to the Vietnam experience and have found that only scattered recollections remain. If you are from my unit, I would be glad to hear from you. Best of luck to us all.
Addendum: the above was posted several years ago.
Subsequently, my best friend
and "foxhole buddy", Frank Castro has died from cancer (April 30,

I attended the Fox 2/5 Reunion in San Antionio and reunited with Marines that I served with in the 2nd Platoon, the Company COs and sargents....ame away with great self satisfaction that after all these years, the stories that I recalled actually took place. There were many Marines present at the reunion that helped me reinforce those stories.The "gyrines" helped to filled in alot of the memory blanks that I had from Vietnam. Still alive and doing well!

I served in Fox 2/5 3rd platoon from Feb. '68 till 2nd platoon got napalmed. Then filled out my first tour with 2nd platoon, with a short vacation in Japan and Okinawa for 3 months after getting blown up by a box mine on Aug. 27, '68. Came back to 2nd platoon, was around for awhile then got malaria in time to go to DaNang during Christmas of '68 while Bob Hope entertained the troops just down the road and they wouldn't let any of us attend. Didn't want to watch us throw up I guess. Went back to 2nd platoon, very skinny. Played in the mountains and got ready to rotate. Signed up for another tour with 3rd MAF in DaNang. Finally left Vietnam in '70 aboard the U.S.S. Iwo Jima in a convoy of ships coming back to the States. Got assigned to D.I. school in Diego. Got out of that quickly. Was assigned as NCOIC of the Depot Theatre at Diego and put on the recruit graduations there. Received a medical retirement, 30% in Sept. of 70. Went home got a job, didn't like it, got some college, joined the State Police and here I am.

I am a Canadian citizen who during the Vietnam War era feeling patriotic, seeking adventure and wanting to travel the world crossed the border in 1966 to volunteer and enlist in the Marine Corps. Boot Camp Paris Island SC,ITR Camp Geiger NC and then on to Camp Pendelton in CA. Went to Vietnam the slow way, sailed on a troop ship from San Diego to Danang. Transfered to An Hoa where I did a complete tour of duty from March 67 to April 68 in M-60 Guns, Weapons Platoon of Fox-2/5. During that period saw action in and around An Hoa, Phu Loc 6, Nong Son and Hue City/TET. That period of my young life was a very intense,memorable and unforgetable moment in time. As someone once said "It was the best of times and it was the worst of times". After Vietnam I did a 6 month Med cruise deployment, returned to Camp Lejeune and a few months later left the Marine Corps at the end of my enlistment. I live in Montreal,have been married the past 15 years to Louise. We have no children. Both of us love to travel and we have been very fortunate to have been able to visit Asia, Europe, Mexico and the Caribbean. After the Marine Corps I tried my hand at a variety of jobs, however professional sales has been my career choice these past years and most recently with Panasonic as an account mngr in their Battery products group. I wish to thank the webmaster and all others who helped create and maintain this fine website that reunites all Marines who served with 2nd Battalion/5th Maine Regiment. Proud to have served with honor.

the hospital, the prison and everything in between. I got my second heart
outside of the City in some vil when we were rocketed. I remember nothing about
leaving the City. I guess it just happened. I was medivaced to Yakuska Japen in
5/68. Upon return to the States I was assigned to Guard Company Marine Barracks,
8th and I Washington DC. I graduated from Georgetown
U. in 1976. Received multiple masters degrees from the U of Md. I worked for the
State of Md./Montgomery County gov. until my retirement in 7/07.
Other than Capt. Downs I do not remember many people from Fox 2/5. I guess it is age but it also the fact that I was only with the Co. for about 1-1/2 months before we went into Hue City and of course once there, the names of people changed almost daily. The Co. we left with was totally different than when we went in. After Hue is a blank. I know we went back towards Phu Bi. We were by the coast for a while. I remember being in an old French position with concrete bunkers, etc. guarding a CB operation that crushed rocks. Then we humped up into the mountains around Bac Ma. I was medivaced again in early April.

Would like to hear from anyone that served with 2/5 Foxtrot during the 1966/67 era.
Arrived in Vietnam in April 66 and assigned to Fox 2/5. Was assigned to one of the Best Gun Teams on the Corps. We had our share of times I must say both Good & Bad. The members of our Gun team was made of Rick "Barney" Barnes, myself and Hank Janakowski and other members of different teams as well, but it was Barry & Hand that was the makeup of our team and we all shared from time to time the responsibility of the Gun.
The Operations we were on was Apache, Colorado, Prairie. It was Prairie that I took gunshot to my right leg as we walked into a major ambush in Quang Tri Province on 26 Oct 66. That was a major day for use as we also lost our Chaplain that day as well as many others. After Prairie it was on to Llincoln< Nebraska, Tuscaloosa, Independence, LaNoke, New Castle, Dixie, Noname.
Thanks to all who served. Would love to hear from anyone during that time period. (updated 26Jun14)

I had decided that the time I spent in Nam, was just my imagination and the experiences just nightmares, because I never met any of the men I served with since I left. None of the Viet Nam history books mentions us, the only published pictures of our unit is taken during Prairie 1 and the credits are mistakenly labeled as 3/4.marines. Now that I have found your site, I feel like the character in "1984" who stumbled on to the proof that the government has wiped out select pieces of history so they can arrange it to fit their purposes. I have 30% service connected disability, I got my purple heart medal two days ago and now a website about my unit in Viet Nam. If I can find a cold beer my life will be complete! When they medivaced me, my platoon had taken 70% casualties, but what was left of them was assaulting through the smoke and winning! Semper Fi!
Added 8Oct02 It is nice to make connection with the living past. I was on my way to Viet Nam as an 0311 replacement and when we touched down in Okinawa to refuel, word came that a grunt outfit called 2/5 requested 45 men and I got picked as one of the ones to go. That was Feb of 1966. We trained until early April, then loaded up on the good ship "George Clymer" and landed in Viet Nam, April 13, 1966 at Chu Lia and settled on Hill 69 just off Higway 1. We practiced war with the VC until September 1966. On September 24 we mounted out for the big show in Quang Tri Province, on Operation Prairie. I think we got to shoot at something just about every day and on October 13, 1966, I was hit in the ass by a grenade, after we had spent a fun day raising hell in the village of Contien. I was medivaced to the USS repose and after a trip to Subic Bay, where I met Maria or was it Juanita. I returned in time to meet the battalion at An Hoa, South West of Da Nang. Just after Christmas I got transferred to an MP outfit in Da Nang and so ended the most unforgettable year of my life. 2/5 FCO 2nd Plt Feb'66 to Jan'67. Semper Fi Mac!

Corpsman with Fox 2/5 during Tet '68
I served in H&S Company for a while as casualty reporter in S-4 I think it was. Went in the field to each company to collect the casualty reports or got them on the Radio. I was wounded in action in the field when I was acting casualty reporter for the Battalion. Served as Battalion Casualty reporter for about 6 plus months then transferred to FOX company. I don't remember which date I transfered to Fox company, I don't remember too much after that nor do I remember any names, to long ago ..... After transfering to FOX Company I was wounded again then stayed in the rear at company headquarters as mail man, I think that was in Phu Bi. Then was medivaced to the naval hospital in Japan. I was then transferred to the Philadelphia naval hospital from Japan. Was discharged in August of 1969 while at the Philadelphia Naval Hospital with a medical discharge under honorable conditions. After discharge I took it easy for a while then became an insurance saleman for about 2 years then broke into the Trucking industry. Worked for Consolidated Freightways, Davidson Transport and Pilot Freight carriers, all when out of business or was laid off. After Pilot Freight Carriers went out of business I bought my own trucks and trailers and started my own Trucking company, MGS Transport, After several years I renamed it Thurder Road Express. When diesel Fuel went sky high and revenue dropped off I lost my equipment and went to work for another trucking company, worked there for about a year then was injured on the job while unloading freight at a customers facilities. That disabled me and now I am on the disability list collecting a disability check each month because I can't work now... sucks big time. Got married after training and now have 4 kids and 10 Grand kids, own a home in York, Pa.... well that is it in a nut shell, lots happened in between but that is another story, LOL I was listed on the list of FOX Company members but do not see my name listed anymore, what happen? Anyway this is an update. I purchased a black Hat from your PX and would like to purchase another black hat with the fox company emblem on it. I have worn it out and need a new one. Will you except paypal???? 1966-1969

with 2/5 from 9/68 - 10/69. First
six months or so in the bush with Fox, 3rd Platoon and the balance with
Battalion Headquarters as clerk/casualty reporter -- I could type.
After being wounded once and being hospitalized with malaria twice, I
thought being in the "rear" would be easy street.
But, I was wrong. One of the
first condolence letters I had to write to a family was for my friend and fire
team partner, Renee "Chuck" Webster, who was killed only days after I
bush. Several others WIA and KIA in
the same action, but Chuck is the only one I can recall clearly. I've looked
over the member roster but, sadly, don't see names that I recognize.
I'd appreciate it if anyone can jog my memory.

I served with Fox 2/5 Jan '65 - July '67. 3rd platoon 3rd squad on the right flank of 1st and 2nd at Union 2. Maintained radio communication in the middle of the rice paddy after radioman was hit and soon later died. I Remained all day communicating with the gunny and the air strikes. This was my lt's last order. The gunny told me on the radio that we had stepped right into a regimental CP. At the end of the day Fox Trot regrouped on the small rocky hill everybody was worn out from the heat and the close quarter combat all day long. I was sent out along with others to retrieve or wounded and dead if possible. There was alot of enemy movement all around us. Big problem so was the enemy trying to retrieve theirs. We called in Puff and straffed the tree lines in front of us and to keep there heads down while we retrieved our comarades. No we did not get them all. The ones that we were unable to get we got as close as we could and watched over them until daylight. Daylight we were now reinforced. We gathered our dead and wounded next day. I could not beleive that we had a reporter in the middle of of all this kaos. I do remember that he was told that it was in his best interest to leave immediately if not sooner. This was not a time for pictures or chit chat. What was left crossed the paddy to the oppsite side. Company took up defensive posions and what was left of my squad went back out into the rice paddy to be a buffer between the enemy and Marines.

I was artillery officer (D 2/11) assigned to F 2/5 as an Forward Observer from July 1969 to November 1969. The CO was Captain Ken Furr and the XO was Lt. Pete Korn. My best friend in the unit was Third Platoon Commander Lt. Mike Henghsen (? spelling)I was a former enlisted Marine 0311 and that helped keep me alive. Although I was an Artillery Officer, my assignment with Fox was the highlight of my 15 years in the Marine Corps. In fact, the normal assignment for a FO with a rifle company was usually about 6-8 weeks, if they lasted that long, but I tried to stay with Fox as long as I could and finally had to be given a direct order to leave the unit. I was replaced by Lt. John Herring. I retired from DIA in 1999 and currently work as a contractor with BAE Systems.
My name is Roseann Vallone Oliveri and my
brother was Frank Vallone. He was a with the 2/5 when he was KIA inQuang Nam on
9-11-68. He arrived in Nam on 7-7-68. He was only there for about 2 months when
he was killed. Im looking for anyone who might have known him and maybe has some
pictures of him they can share. I dont know any of his friends names, so I dont
have anything to go on at this point. Is there anyway I can post something on
the 2/5 website so that any 2/5 men can see it? I would appreciate any help.
Thank You Roseann Vallone
Im almost positive that he was with foxtrot. I spoke to one Marine who was with him on the day he was killed. I believe his name was Gary "Chuck" Huband. I had just wanted to know that my brother didnt suffer, and Chuck was able to answer alot of questions for me. I would just like to hear from others that knew my brother also., though he wasn't there very long, only two months. Chris Brown had put me in touch with Dave Brown about 5 or 6 years ago and Dave found Chuck and had him call me. I e-mailed Chris again and he said I can write something about my brother and he would put it in the 2/5 newsletter, so that might help. I'll be calling Chris in a few days to talk to him about it.
I started my second tour in Vietnam March 8th 1967 [my first
tour was with Hotel 2/4]. With Fox 2/5, at An Hoa. I was placed in the second

was wounded in head on 6/2/67 on Union II. I was a CPL at the time. Med evac to
Japan, then to Okinawa Kuee Hosp., then casualty barracks Camp Hanson.

I was sent to Nam in Sept. of 1968 with less than six months left on my 4 yr. enlistment. The reason of course was picking up E-5 just two months prior and having a 0300 mos. As luck would have it I had a secondary of 0141 because I knew how to type. To make a long story short they offered me the Admin. Chief's position with fox company and I made it through.I can't remember my COs name but I do remember an incident in which he borrowed my 45 to make a trip to the field. The bird he took attempted a landing on unlevel ground and flipped down an embankment giving everybody onboard a pretty rough ride. When returned to the company he came in looking pretty banged up and said to me "I lost your damn gun".

I went to RVN as an artilleryman with HQ Battery 2-11 (supporting 5th Marines Regiment with fire support. During my first tour I observed, from the Command Bunker and large wall map, that Fox 2/5 seemed to get more than it's share of dirty, dangerous assignments. Obviously, from my vantage point, I could see they were the "go to team." I determined to extend my tour twice in a row because I felt I was not really a full-fledged Marine until I had served with a rifle company in combat. I choose Fox as the "go to company" as their Artillery Forward Observer and have never regretted it since! I served with Fox from September 1968 through May 1969, when I was shot and left for dead on the battlefield in front of Echo Battery, An Hoa base, repulsing a Sapper attack on my support battery. Today I live in the Seattle area and maintain contact with many of my blood brothers from that era. Semper Fi....
I graduated boot camp on the 4th of July, 1967, while Fox fought the Nong Song battle at the Coal Mines. Arrived in 'Nam Oct, 1967 and served with 2nd Bn, 11th Marines (artillery) supporting 5th Marines. In September, 1968 I extended to become the Artillery Forward Observer for Fox Co, 2/5 and re-extended yet again to continue doing that. Wounds received in combat on May 12, 1969, required my evac back stateside where I was finally medically discharged with permanent disability. Fox Company was and is the best darned Company in the Corps and, probably, in any branch of service in any military anywhere! Hoorah and Semper Fi. My 'Nam nickname was "Cpl Ski" and, later on, "Sgt. Ski." I have returned to Nam and loved the experience. The Vietnamese people > are great. I suggest you all get your hands on Battlelines, by Lt. Col. Dave Brown (my CO) and relive the days that helped shape who we are today!
I was the artillery forward observer (actual) as a Corporal, later as a Sgt. Most of my time was spent under Capt./Maj. Dave Brown. I was attached from 2/11 artillery and also served awhile with Echo Co. 2/5, but my heart and the majority of my field time was with Fox. Hoorrah.

Being In 2/5 up on the hill and while out on float I'll never forget. They are some of my best memory's. I still remember alot of the guys that were in first platoon fox company. Like my squad leader Cpl Cisneros which picked up Sgt. A little bit before I transfered to Hawaii 1/3. And our radio man Lcpl Hatch who could out run everybody and hump more weight then all of us. Not only did he carry his normal gear but also that heavy radio and at least 2 or 3 extra batteries, prick 38's I think what the radios where called. I always hung around Pfc Westmoreland, Pfc Boyed, Pfc Anaya The drinking buddy's. I remember once we where out in the field and Cpl Bourgoyne and I came across a rattle snake and he actually cought the damn thing by hand, I mean reached down and snatched it up with his bare hand. Lt saw him do that and in stead of saying WOW hole shit your faster then a snake. Lt chewed him out for horse play. Butter bar is luck no snake ever found his sleeping bag and needed someone to help him out. Anyways I miss all of my brothers from Fox compay 1platoon 2/5 1980- 1982.

I am looking for anyone who remembers me from 1970 to 1975. I also served in Fox 2/3, 3rd Force Recon, Operation Frequent Wind and the evacuation of Saigon. I am trying to receive pension, because I am now legally blind due to having a bullet bounced off my skull during combat. Unfortunately, my papers are "lost in transit," and I need a buddy letter to receive the pension. If anyone could help me, I'd appreciate it.
