Baggs, Marion R.

I joined you at Liberty Bridge end of July, early Aug. 68. I was the oldest Lt. in the free world. The "Mustang". Enjoyed the very pleasing company of many of you at the various reunions during the conception of and birth of the good ship U.S.S Hue City. Hope to meet more of you by and by. Sent out of the field to be C.O. of H&S Co. in May 69. Returned to "The Real World" in Aug. 69. My first tour was with 2/7 further south in 65 & 66.

Additional Info Received: Dear Sir,
I saw my Dad's listing here. Could you update it for him please he passed away in August from Agent Orange exposure. It gave him a cancer, but he never blamed the corp or the USA. The last few months he kept saying that the orange stuff saved his life, it meant there was a lot less jungle to have to fight in. It saved him and he was ableto come home to us and spend another 30 years with us. He was always so proud of his Marine life, and I am for being his son.
Thank you

Started off in Chu Lai in September of '66. I was supposed to have 3 days of getting a refresher with weapons. This never occurred. Golf Company came in from their outpost in the middle of the night and the next day we all flew to Dong Ha to stem an invasion from the North. It was a scary way to meet everyone for the first time. Dong Ha to Con Thien was literally a forced march, having to dig in every night and to be mortared without fail. Con Thien is where I met Lt. Buchanan and where I became 2nd Sqd. Ldr. after half the squad was killed due to friendly 81 mortar fire. We are all truly brothers. God bless all of you. Semper Fi, Joe Barry

Bates, John

Served with Golf Company 2nd Bn, 5th Marines from October 1966 - November 1967. Most of that time we were based out of An Hoa, except for combat operations.

Was WIA on 17 December 1966 (gunshot wound, chest, Phu Loc 6), 6 July 1967 (grenade shrapnel, left knee, Nong Son) and 15 August 1967 (punji stake wound, foot, Antenna Valley).

Most likely would not be alive today were it not for the superb combat leadership of then Lt. Bill Buchanan, Doc Thacker, Doc Salisbury, Doc LeGarie and other magnificant Marines and Corpsmen.

Thirteen months was an entire lifetime. That time and those Marines have had more positive effect on me than all others. Semper Fidelis, John

I was wounded in April I think it was with facal and neck wounds and was wondering if any of you remember it and send me a statement saying so. Seems I can't get my purple put on my DD214 until I do. Would really be a big help if the Corpsmen the patched me up would remember, It took him a little extra time to find his unit 1 he was busy doing other things. My a gunner lost his little finger if that would help. Thats pretty much it after that I kind of went lights out for awhile.

I also am the G 2/5 information officer, and I help out with the Web site. I try to do as much as I can to get information out to All Veterans, and fight for those who cannot fight for themselves.

I was in the crotch 1966 thru / 1969. Shipped over on the USS Magoffin with 3rd MP Bn 5th Marine Division.(Combat Police??) Just prior to arrival at ReD Beach/May 67 the 3rd MP Bn was disbanded and we all became "true o311's". Was assigned to Golf 2/5, 3rdPlt 3rd Sqd. Can only remember distinctly my immediate family, ie;fire team and squad. Sgts.Ellis, Brent,Eells, Mike Haveard, Jack Parrigan, George Partin, John Winters,Bill French, Pvt. Kandal,Larry Butts, RAWLINGS, George Nash, Paul Roberts. However when looking at old photos immediately remember faces and some places. Would be beneficial if we could access unit personnel information for a specific time frame/ this would assist many in contacting all those faces without names we all can recall vividly or names w/o faces! I have for the last week been looking at photos taken in Nam in 67 & 68, this is the first time I have looked at them in 30 plus years. The eight months I spent in Nam was the most alive I have ever felt and now realize that my/our life/lives have been directly related for "better or worse" to those experiences. I am sure I will never see or speak to most of you my brothers,but then as now, it sure feels good to know we are still here for each other.

Everyone there was relatively new in country and there were some drafted Marines in the outfit as I recall (something of an oddity at the time). I was about the saltiest guy in camp, easy to spot with my shinny silver-metaled M-14.

I arrived and was assigned to Golf Company in August of 1968. I enlisted in the USMC in October of 1965. I became Holly Wood Marine and then went to the Air Wing as an aviation ordinance man. I attended OCS in October of 1967 and was commissioned in early 1968. I was given a choice of MOS's in Basic School and chose the "Grunts". It was the best thing that I ever did for myself other than join our beloved Corps.

I was wounded on the 15th of September 1968 and sent back to the States via Japan. I was medically retired on the 1st of December 1969 at the Rank of 1/Lt.

Since that time I have worked in the Construction Industry. My Company (The Jon Espenes Co., Inc.) designs and builds commercial projects. We specialize in the Construction of Car Dealerships and build throughout Indiana and Illinois. Our current projects are in Arlington Heights, Illinois.

I can truly say that I had the distinct honor of serving with a Company of heroes. Those who were there with me, those who came before me, and those who followed. I may have forgotten the names and the faces but I will never forget your friendship and fighting spirit. May God bless each of you brave Warriors and your families also. And may God continue to bless and protect the young men and women who fearlessly stand in harms way to protect our Freedom, our Country, and our Marine Corps!

Have three grown daughters and four grandbabies. Getting old is hell, I refuse to grow-up <grin>

Thought I would update info on me. Still live in Nebraska. Haven't been doing a very good job of keeping up with you guys but will do a better job. Don't always recall names but do remember places and actions quite well. Would like to hear from any and all, even from those that I treated. Would like to hear from you other "Doc's" too.
Got to 2/5 in Dec. 67 and was assigned to Golf then. Spent time with each platoon but mostly with the 3rd platoon. Went to the mortars in mid '68 and finally to the BAS in late Oct. Left in Dec. 68. Went to Lab. school at the Great Lakes, I did run into a couple of you guys there but don't remember the names. Finished the Navy in 1970.Acually finished once I got to the Marines, will always consider myself more Marine than Navy. Joined the Guard in '72 as a Medic on Helicopters and finished my Guard career in '95 as a First Sgt.of a Medical Company. Even though my "offical"military retirement may say USA, my heart knows the truth.

Hi! I am Heidi Munk. I am Roger's daughter. I am looking for those who served with him. I would love to get in contact with those of you who knew him. My brother Roger Jr was born 20 days after Dad died. Mom is still alive and single.

My oldest son, Davin, as of this date, 2 Oct2003, is at boot camp in MCRD San Diego carrying on where Dad left off. Davin always feels that Dad is the angel sitting on his shoulder as he goes through the Marine experience. My son Ryan Roger is the living image of his Grandfather.

Please feel free to email me or write! we have gobs of unlabeled pictures so I don't even know for sure who I am looking for other than I have been found by Schroeder and Williams.

I was a member of G Co., 2ndBn, 5thMar, 3rd Platoon, 3rd Squad during the Tet offensive in Hue city. I believe Captain Meadows was the CO. I remember a Sargeant Oaks was a part of our outfit. He was a hard nosed Marine who expected the most of you. A Oklahoma boy if I recall. Because of him many butts were saved. He was a heck of a guy. I also recall a Lt. of ours who was wounded in the area o his privates. And of course that was the first thing he asked about. After we moved out of Hue and back to base I went on R&R and not long after that I transferred to CAG and moved down South.

I joined Golf Company in February '68. At first I carried a 3.5 Rocket Launcher and served in Weapons Platoon under S/Sgt Caldwell. My A-Gunner was Doug Klebba (may he rest in peace). We were attached to 2nd Platoon under 2nd Lt. P. Pace (I always called him by his "nick-name" ..."SIR". Evidently, the nick-name stuck!!
When we were leaving Hue, I was put in 60mm Mortars. Doug went to "guns", I think 3rd platoon.
I then became 1st Ammo Humper under Cpl. Willet (sp?) and L/Cpl. Vance. We had two Johnson's so we were called by our initials. I was "J.R." and Vic was called "V.C."! Can you imagine being called "V.C." or Victor Charles (his real name) in Vietnam? There were some funny stories about that.
I was with Golf through Operation Houston III. Following all of those landmines I was asked to join 5th Marine Scout Snipers. The Plt. Commander was a Mst/Sgt. He explained that I would have to "volunteer" and then began explaining the different rights and/or benefits that I would receive. I just kept looking at him. Then, when he was just about out of breath he said, "You don't have to carry any gear but your own." I smiled and replied, "I volunteer". A couple weeks later, I hitch-hiked out to (I think) Hill 88 to visit G 2/5. I had a regret for having left Golf Co.. I was medi-vac'd to Japan and then home 8/28/68. I attended the 30th Memorial Service onboard the USS Hue City. Unfortunately, I didn't recognize anyone. For some reason everyone "else" has gotten older...I just keep looking the same! :)

It's been 35 years since I talked to anyone from Hue City, Phu Bai, or the Hai Van Pass. But it has never left my memory. I was wounded on June 2, 1968 while on patrol on the railroad tracks below the Hai Van Pass. God bless the Corpsman who ran all the way down and treated me. He saved my life and my leg. Semper Fi - all. Here are some of my photos from those glorious days when we were young. I don't remember all of the names of those in the photos, but if you do, please e-mail me so that I can update them. Best Regards.

Lopez, Bernardo

Dec 67 thru June 68. I don't remember names. My platoon leader was a stocky brother. Guys namedFigueroa (puerto rican)and Koonze (brother) were in my platoon. The gunner was a guy they called "scottie" who got hit in HUE. The radio man was KIA in Hue. I had drawn a pencil sketch of him with a bullet in his neck a couple of weeks ealier while he was sleeping during a break. I was shot in the face in Hue on the 8th of Feb, 68. My squad at that time was down to three men. Had a KIA and me wounded left a one man marine squad. I guess they had to throw one together.

I was involved in the TET offensive in Hue, South Vietnam. I have never heard anyone mention in any historical context that on the morning of the 31st of January, 1968 while rescuing the MACV Compond, at one point that day, there were no more than 250-275 Marines actively fighting what most people estimate to be some 9,000 enemy combatants. Our agressiveness made them pause, ensuring our survival until reenforcements could be brought in.

I joined G/2/5 at Camp Margarita in late 1965 just after finishing ITR. Enjoyed the honor of training with this unit at Camp Pendleton and sailing in battalion strength aboard USS Bexar to Okinawa for additional training. Arrived in Vietnam in early 1966. I was part of the patrol that experienced what I believe was the company's first contact after arriving in-country. We were patrolling in at least squad strength (with Rockets attached) when, as we began to cross some paddies, we were hit with small arms fire from a treeline to our left. We took up a defensive position in an "island" of trees in the center of the paddy and began to take additional fire from a hamlet directly in front of us. We returned fire and eventually assaulted the hamlet after we were resupplied. Of course, we found no bodies but I'm sure we made an impression on them. It wasn't much of an encounter, but ,like I say, I think it was the company's first. I believe we took only one casuality. I'm probably wrong on this, but the casuality may have been an E-6 named "Sloan" who got shot in the foot. I'd love to hear from anyone who recalls this. Soon afterward, I was transferred to G/2/7 where I finished my tour. After arriving back in the states, I was assigned as a Troop Leader at ITR for several months. Finished my enlistment as member of Marine Detachment, USS Hornet. That was nice duty with great liberty, but it was disgusting to see sailors (unlike our brother corpsmen) get "combat" pay and ribbons for floating around and not even catching sight of land.

O'Rourke, Jack

Joined G Co at Camp Pendleton in Sept 65. We sailed for Okinawa on 2 Jan 66 and spent 6 weeks at Camp Schwab up north. It was on Okinawa that we went thru all phases of training from the FT and Sqd to Platoon and then Company and the last week was Bn operations. We sailed for Vietnam in the middle of Feb 66 and we landed at Chu Lai. We spent about 2 weeks at the airfiel and then went to Hill 69. It was a great time with G Company. In April or May I was told to pack my gear and be at the helo pad in 20 minutes. I was being sent to 3rd Bn 1st Mar up in the DaNang area. I didn't get a chance to say goodby to anyone. Five members of the company did come to LV last November and we all sat together at the Birthday Ball. Ellie, my wife, and I are planning on coming to Mytrle Beach this Sept.

Parisi, Cosmo D.

Was there when they started the outfit in Paris Island. G 2/5 1st 1969-1970. I went to Vietnam some time in late 1969. Met up with G 2/5 in the A Shau Valley. Still looking for guys in my outfit. I started out with a M-16 carried a L.A.W., also ended up with a blooper M-79 and last had ended up carrying the radio. On one patrol we found some enemy in a cave in the mountain side, they called me forward with the blooper and (having no training with it ) just aimed and fired. Needless to say it fell quite short. They called up the other man with a blopper who knew what he was doing and he got them. Any one remember that one?
Also we had a skipper who, as we crossed another rice patty, stepped on a bobby trap and was standing up. At first we thought he fell into a crater, but he was standing on his stumps. The head corpsman called in a medivac and we set up a perimeter, and he was gone. Never saw him again. If any one remembers any of these. Please let me know. Thanks

I just got an E mail that made me proud. A young Marine is proud of his service to our country and I am proud of him. I tell him this as often as I can through email and snail mail. I will never forget the heros I served with in 67 and 68 and I will never neglect the heros who serve in 2002.

I just started surfing the net and was surprised to find a site so unique to this unit! Never thought there'd ever me much other than general 1st Mar div stuff. Kinda neat! Feel connected all of a sudden! Don't remember any names in the list on this site , but then again i don't remember much anymore. By the way, if anyone is in the VNVMC i'd like to hear from you. I was in country Aug 13, 1968. Was assigned to Golf 2/5 off the gitgo and was in it the entire time until i got shot by an AK in the left arm 4/4/69. Basically all i remember was our base was in An Hoa . . .with the cement factory right outside the gates! I remember one night when we were back for 3 or so days we had perimeter duty. The camp took a few rounds from the 'factory' one night so the armor guys fired up one of their M1's and lit the searchlight mounted on the gun. . i just remember like we could conquer the world. . .bring em on! not much else happened but we did recover a lot of old stuff including a thompson submachine gun!

I got shot in April 69 after a day long slug fest where we had as many heat casulities as others. I got shot by a gook in a hole. If he hadn't shot me i would have fallen in i'm sure. I think he got several of us that day. Heard the Lt got him later that day. I remember just before we went in our squad was sitting around a well with the gun team. Someone asked me 'how long will this go on' and i said jokeningly in front of them , "until the gun team gets taken out' . . .and later they did.

Also somebody accidently bumped their M16 and it fell into the well! The rest of us looked and him and somebody said "you're in a world of hurt buddy. . .good luck, you're not getting mine!". After i got shot i remember almost dragging the medic to the chopper which had just landed for an emergency ammo resupply. . . i knew it was my ride outta that hell hole and i wasn't going to miss it! Maybe a have a few pictures. if so i'll send them to the web site. Don't know how much we're supposed to write so i'll quit for now. Semper Fi.

Joined Golf 2/5 in February 1968 in Hue as a replacement. The day I came in as a replacement, it brought our squad manpower to seven. WIA two weeks later and ended up evacted St. Albans Naval Hospital. My stay with the unit was short and busy, so recalling fellow Marines is almost impossible. Their faces and actions stay with me today. After hospital and transit stations, I served almost 3 years at Marine barracks Fort Meade Maryland (NASA) detail. My reason for leaving the Corps, if reenlisting and being promoted to Staff I was going to be assigned there, indefinite. Semper Fi to all Marines, just wish I had better memory of my comrades.

I am truly thankful that I had dedicated brother marines by my side at all times, both when we were in battle and when we had time to relax. We all knew about each others personal lives back home. I am proud to have served with the Best of the Best. There are too many to list, but they all know who they are. Thank you.

I am married, have 4 children, and 5 grandchildren. Retired from ComEd in northern Illinois in 1996 after 28 years. Enjoy fishing and golfing.

Every day after Nam has been a gift. There are many brothers who did not come home, but they are always in our hearts and minds. Thanks Barney and Mike for finding me.

Tant, William "Billy" (from a friend)

William "Bill" Tant is a friend of mine who served with 2/5 Golf Company at Hue City Tet Offensive. I printed your web site and the members and gave it to him. I was unsure whether that was a "good" thing but he liked it. Bill left home in Tuscaloosa, Alabama right before Christmas of 1968. He told me once that he remembered "all the faces" and it bothered him that he couldn't remember the names. He doesn't talk about it much. As the battle of Hue continued he was made Squad Leader as a 19 year old PFC and made decisions he still replays in his mind. The "Lest We Forget" had the name Cpl. Glenn Lucas, whom I knew to be Bill's Squad Leader and was killed within 10 feet of where Bill was standing. He said a Navy Corpsman, Doc Kirkham, was killed while trying to reach Cpl. Lucas.

I printed out all 64 pages of comments made by G Company members and left it on Bill's doorstep, along with the "Lest We Forget" and hoped that I had not done the "wrong thing." He said he felt better because he did find some names and there was one guy in there who was looking for the person who called in a strike that saved them. He said he was the one who called it in. He was not in the same area as this guy. I don't know how all that works about calling in strikes but he said he is going to answer that post because he is the one the guy was looking for.

Anyway, however you handle this web site, William "Bill" Tant's name needs to be here. Maybe he will give me "his own words" soon but until then, I want to do my part for him (and all of you) in respecting your service and acknowledging your sacrifices.

P.S. Someone sent the Webmaster an email stating that they had what was probably the last photograph of Cpl. Glenn Lucas. My computer crashed and I lost the email. Please send again.

Walters, Michael (sister of)

I am the sister of Michael Walters. Mike was with the 2/5 and served in Nam from July l968 till July l969 when we lost him. I have been fortunate to find 3 of the guys that served with Mike. Dale Stringham, Jim Hopkins and Manning who was with Mike at the end. One of the boys that Mike wrote of in so many of his letters was a Speedy (Floyd) Washington. I have been unable to find him so far and would appreciate any help I could get. Someone called for Mike just about a week after the funeral, I'm sure they had a arranged time, and he got so emotional when we told him we lost him that we couldn't get his name. Mom and Dad are gone now, but I would still like to find this person that knew my brother that well. I have 2 sons and I want them to know all they can about my brother. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Warner, David (from his sister - Sue Warner-Bean)

Dave arrived Vietnam 8/1/67 and was KIA in Hue on 2/17/68. Great to hear from anyone who remembers him. Also, I'm trying to identify some of the Marines in his photos, probably taken in Sept-Oct, 1967. Would love to get copies to each of you or to your families, whoever you are. Click on the small pictures and then when you are done click the back button on you browser


Thanks to all the G 2/5 members who have helped me learn about Dave's time in VN -- you all are the BEST, and my family and I will be forever grateful that Dave had such a great group of brothers.

Just received the latest newsletter with the website address on it. I am pleased that there is such a place for us to visit and relearn about forgotten people and times. I have so much to say and no idea of how to say it. Hi Hillbilly, Tully, Lance, and my god, yes even the grand old man, "Lt. Baggs". Just a short bit for now, I joined Golf Co. as a Sgt. in Jan 68 at Phu Bai. I was placed into 1st Plt as the PltSgt to replace their wounded PltSgt, SSgt Levi Jones, who subsequently retired as a SgtMaj and was working as a security officer in a bank in Carlsbad, CA. When SSgt Jones returned, I was transferred to 2nd Plt as their PltSgt and remained in that position until Aug 68 when I was transferred to Flames Plt as the Section Leader. I do not remember most of the people as I would like to but, I do remember faces and instances with great clarity. I do remember receiving a brand new 2ndLt in Hue City that was fresh from "Canoe U" and TBS. He was simply GRAND. He listened to advice and he expressed and displayed true concern for the welfare of his men. It seems amazing that this same man is now a LtGen and still doing quite well with his career. I also had the distinction of serving with some of the finest combat Marines that I have ever known. We were blessed with great men like Barney Barnes, Lester Tully and others that I can not remember. I apologize if I have failed to mention some of you. I will try to consolidate my thoughts and make another attempt later, and hopefully be a lot more coherent. Oh, I retired as a SgtMajor after 30 fabulous years. While I was in, I did return to the 5th Marines as the Bn SgtMaj of 1/5 for 4 glorious years and finally, as the regimental SgtMaj of the MOST DECORATED REGIMENT in the Marine corps, the Fifth Marines. I love you guys and God Bless all of you! May your future years be peaceful and fulfilling! Zac
