    Since we're both old "China Marines" it seems appropriate that we should be friends. I landed at Taku October 1 1945, with the 1stBn 5th Marines. After the ChiCom raid on the 1stMarDiv Ammo Supply Point on 5/6 Apr47, guarded by 1/5, and the many Marine casualties, someone decided that 1/5 should be pulled out and sent to the 1stProvMarBrigade then forming on Guam. One ironic point is that our KIAs and WIAs that we had in North China couldn't be awarded a PH because the ChiComs were not our "official enemy." Not until after the Korean War was over was this corrected, and those of us who were wounded were told that we could put in for our PHs. Went back to Tsingtao from Guam in '48 although I had to extend my enlistment to get that done. Anyway, it's nice to have another "Old China Hand" on the board. Salute! Semper Fidelis, Sully

    Hello Gunny, I recently posted a request for any WWII devil dogs on this site and Sparkie was kind enough to send me your way. The posting is at http://www.leatherneck.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=74603

    My Grandfather enlisted in the navy during WWII and served in the pacific. He never spoke of his service. Despite the branch he chose, he was a major force in my decision to become a Marine. He was a hard man from a hard time (Great Depression and WWII). He told me to join the Corps...that way I would never feel less than the best.

    It would be an honor to chat with you sometime if possible. Semper Fi Gunny, and best wishes. Dell Chism
