    Semper Fi Dave, I Came On Board At Hill 10 On Jan 69 And I Have Met General Van Riper At The Marine Museum In Quantico ,va. He Was My Favorite Officers In Combat. My Life Was Spared By L/cpl Lester William Weber. I Was One Of The Lives He Saved That Day, 2/23/69 He Received The Moh And Till This Day Is The Greatest Hero I Have Ever Had The Pleasure Of Being Trained By. I Left Nam After Receiving My 3rd Purple Heart. I Am Totally Disabled From The Service, (agent Orange) But I Thank The Corps For Training Me To Survive. God Bless The Corps And Thank You Coup For Your Service To The Greatest Country In The World And The Best Fighting Outfit On Earth, The Marines

    Hi Dave, Greetings Marines,
    I've been reading the PTSD threads. All the Marines' messages have been very helpful to me (civilian) bec I am trying to understand the Corps and PTSD. I have a good friend who I am pretty sure is not just an alcoholic. Infantry. Vietnam. 1968. Am trying to pass the PTSD info on to him. Ellie posted an article dated 10-11 about PTSD. Think it's under news releases. Hope you all saw it. Thanks for sharing. And thanks for your sacrifices and courage in war and now. Semper Fi!
