This image, by Don McCullin, is of a US Marine prior to or during the battle for Hue, 1968; of course I don't have to tell you that, you all know. It has been used on the front cover of a book, The Scars of War, by Hugh McManners.

The image was also used by the Wikileaks creator Julian Assange during a recent press conference. A UK journalist has posed the question - who is he? Is he still alive? The inference is that the correlation between the courage of the US Marine, and Assange is unbalanced.

I would appreciate your help.

Aye, Rob.

I have discovered that McCullin was embedded with Delta Company 1/5th US Marines at Hue. Anybody recognise the Marine in the image? The photograph is simply annotated, "Shell shocked soldier, Hue 1968."

Hey, Doc.
For the most part I operated a M135, Jeep mounted , it was mounted over the rear right tire. Once in a great while I got to humpa PRC 25 with a KY38. No fun there. Ran into a WM back in the mid-80's, she was Comm. When I told her I operated mux gear, she called me a dinosaur. Apparently, by that time, mux was a museum piece.

My name is Xavier Thompson, I’m a 30 year old male searching for my biological Father. I was told his name is Derrick Melbourne a Marines service man back in the 80’s. I was also told he has family back in Miami Florida. I have been searching for years to reach out to Mr. Derrick but have been unsuccessful. All I know is that he should be around 50 to 55 years of age. He was from the Cayman Islands and he was stationed in Okinawa Japan in the 1980’s. If you have a relative and know of him please send me an email at zaymiami305@yahoo.com or I can be reached at 305-370-9417.please pass to fellow marine Thanks in advance,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

So everyone will know: I've no problems with an alien coming to this country in the right way as they as they obey our laws & live by them. It's the illegals that TICK me off. I say send the Marines to guard (?) the border & not let the Gov't keep them from doing their job. As for the Border Guard who shot (in the head) that 16yr. old Mexican boy; give him a two week paid vacation & a raise. As for the boy's family wanting to sue this Country for $25m-tell them they're lucky they weren't shot in the head & if they try crossing again it's shoot first & ask questions later. If I live to see this Country fall, the Marines will be the last to defend it.

Good day,

Back in 1981 I was serving as a Corpsman and stationed at the helicopter base in Tustin, CA. On February 11th, a CH-53 and a CH-46 collided in mid air over the base. Six Marines were killed, but one, by the grace of God, survived. I took care of him on the ride to the ER and saw him at the memorial service. I have often wondered how he is doing and pray for him often. I have researched the internet trying to learn his name, but to no avail.

Any help to locate him would be much appreciated. I don't have any other information other than he was on the CH-53.

And a big thanks to the Marine Corps for taking such good care of me between 1977 and 1981. Some of the best memories in my life! Kilo Co. 3rd Bat. 3rd Mar. 1st. Mar. Brigade and VMFP3

Response:
I believe the Marine you are talking about was named Jose Rivera, from Brooklyn, NY...I think he was a TME student...I was with 164 at the time, and this hit us pretty hard...Robert Eibach was the crewchief on our bird (CH-46E), and he was a very good friend of mine and my husband's (we were the Sullins couple in the unit). Hard to believe it has been 30 years this past week!

Is it possible this Marine is a Gunny by now?
Is it possible this same Marine was deployed from Camp Pendleton to Afghanistan and just returned a couple of months ago?

I might have a clue for you.

Years ago, my sister found an old photo of a young Marine. It was left in a motel she purchased in Hermann, Missouri. The picture is his photo and the Platoon he was in at Parris Island. The platoon is 2078, D company. The drill instructors were SSgt Slappey, SSgt Wright, SSgt Sampson, and SSgt Hamblen.

I've tried on several occations to try to find this Marine, or his family. I know he graduated boot camp at least 15 years ago. There is no date on the photos.

This is my last attempt. So, if anyone knows this Marine or his family, or if you have more ideas on how to locate him, please respond. If he is still alive, I think he would want these pictures. And if he isn't, then I know his family would treasure them.

I am looking at starting this, www.OldWarHorses.us (http://www.oldwarhorses.us/) I am working on it now, tell me what you think and where to post it if you agree with the concept. Basically in shoort, short, retired marines , retire to Costa Rica to a small town that needs minimal protection. Starting a sanctioned security force. More of a secret police than a miltary force. A chance to really make a difference, enjoy a beautiful country, and enjoy life and watch out for the peole. Pay would not be much, but planning on free housing and food and small maybe $400 a month, not bad for there though. Ideas apprecited from any marine. I am looking for maybe a major or captain to head it up also.

Hello Everyone,
I am looking any info on a Victor Stoyanow, not sure when he was in or when he retired ( but I am told that he did retire from the Marines ). I do know that by 1964 he was retired and living in Southern California. After his retirement he was a part-time writer and wrote articles about desert exploration. Anyone with information on him or the whereabouts of his family would be greatly appreciated....

Thank You
John

John, you might pursue California obituaries, etc on this Victor to see if he is the one.

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=3433876

And search for him on <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:DoNotOptimizeForBrowser/> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:DoNotOptimizeForBrowser/> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]-->http://pipl.com/.

You might want to check Ancestry.com (subscription required) as who you may be looking for (having this DOB: 8/14/1921, Died: 10/28/1970, served in Marines from 9/23/1946 until 10/5/1962 and was a Major) is in their database, but not showing any other living family.

MARIAH
09-10-11, 03:55 PM
John, Ancestry.com can certainly give you some info depending upon what you are after. Especially if any of his family have been compiling their ancestors.

You might want to start your search by calling Alexander Victor Stoyanow in California and spreading out there. SEE HIS PHONE AND ADDRESS BELOW:

<!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:DoNotOptimizeForBrowser/> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]--> Here are a few Stoyanow:
http://www.lookupanyone.com/namelistings/victor-stoyanow.html
I would start with those in California since that is where he is buried. If you need to search others on the list just go to ZABASEARCH and enter names and state. With luck you will have a phone number if they have a hard line and at least an address to write. There are only a few in California.

I would start with this one, right name structure and probably the right age:
Alexander Victor Stoyanow (http://www.lookupanyone.com/background.php?ReportType=8&records=1&recordid=002450047664&LimitedPackageID=304) 58 San Diego, CA previous addresses Poway, CA El Cajon, CA. Relatives: Sara L Webb, Michael A Stroyanow, Stephen Alexander Stoyanow, Sara Lee Stoyanow, Norma F Stoyanow
GIVE HIM A CALL: (ALEXANDER V STOYANOW (http://www.intelius.com/redir.php?refer=3123&adword=PS.SING.RESULTS.NAME&qf=ALEXANDER&qn=STOYANOW&qc=CA&qa=9373%20STARGAZE&qs=CA&name_style=1) 9373 STARGAZE , SAN DIEGO, CA 92129 (http://www.zabasearch.com/query1_process.php?sname=92129) , (858) 780-0742 (http://www.intelius.com/redir.php?refer=3123&adword=PS.SING.RESULTS.REVPHONE2&phone=%28858%29%20780-0742))

http://www.zabasearch.com/maps/?sname1=ALEXANDER%20VICTOR%20STOYANOW&sname=ALEXANDER%20V%20STOYANOW&first=ALEXANDER&last=STOYANOW&middle=V&state=CA&address=9373%20STARGAZE&city=SAN%20DIEGO&zipcode=92129&&cm=08&cy=2003&phone=%28858%29%20780-0742&int_var=3

A copy of his obit would be useful but that was back in 1970. Surely it would have been printed in their major newspapers of the time.

It's simple "MIND OVER MATTER" my body say's it hurts and my mind say's it don't matter. I was the Weapons Platoon Sergeant with Fox 2/7, 1st. Mar. Div. San Mateo 1975-'76. At this point in my life I may not be able to lead, but I can't advance to rear either, Guess I'll have to fall in behind the platoon with the "Sick, Lame and Lazy, Crippled, Blind and Crazy". 0331 M-60 Machinegunners, Up and on Shoulders.... Exercise. All of my deuce gear is ready to go along with my Customized S.A. M1A Counter Sniper, Hell I'll even bring my own ammo can anybody hook me up with a ride to Iraq ?

Negative on LVT E 1

I do recall LPC. Leather personel carriers-----

parlguthrie
10-21-11, 04:17 PM
The LVT E-1 was an Amtrac Engineering vehicle. It was designed to land on the beach, shoot out a 350 foot 1,750 pound line charge of C4 with a sidewinder rocket, blow up a mine field, and then we lowered our vehicle blade down and plowed up any remaining mines that the line charge didnít explode.

See attached Pictures...

I remember the LVT's although we never had need for the E-1's. We still used them at K-Bay before they came out with the newer Aluminum ones that would float without the engine running. I also remember being the 3rd. man out when it sank in 50 feet of water because the Track-Rat couldn't get it restarted. I was Very happy when we changed from Amtracks to CH-46 Choppers. I also have memories of an Ontos and how P.O.'d my buddy would get when he (being the lowest ranking man) had to climb outside to reload all six barrels.... What Armored Vehicle ? I was also lucky enough to be one of the Last Marines to carry a Flame Thrower at Pendleton before it was phased out and replaced with the Multi-Shot 4 tube launcher. As a Squad Leader I carried an M-79 Blooper where as all the Army guy's would laugh at me because they had the M-203..... Aaaahh The good 'Ol day's, gone forever (Some Marines are glad) but I miss them. Semper Fi.

I honestly believe that you have found some Marines. Some you and some Old. At 56 I love to talk to those older than me because the Crops has changed so so much. The young people dont even know how much boot camp has changed. For example, I remember getting into Parris Island and how things changed real fast. If the Di's were able to do some of the things that they did back than now, some marines would not be calling themselves Marines, they may have become a member of other brunch of the service.

SEMPER FI Matt, I have never been to Cherry Point (just about everywhere else though). My Mother (another Sgt.) was a Drill Instructor for WM's at Cherry Point in 1943. My Brother followed in my Fathers footsteps for Squid-Canoe's. Although I have a great deal of respect for my Father being in the U.S. Navy during WWII, he was attached to British Commandos attacking German fuel and ammo depots from Submarines. Being a 1st generation German/American he spoke fluent German and wore a German uniform on guard duty while his British commrades set explosive charges. Sorry Mat, didn't mean to get carried away. I was a Weapons Platoon Sergeant with Fox Co. 2/7 1st. Mar. Div. and I kick myself in the ass every day for not staying in for 30 or 40 years. I am however extremely Proud of having been a member of such a great Brotherhood occupied by fellow Marines such as you. Semper Fi Matt.
