    Sorry! Didn't know Cpl. Tinson! I was the MEB commander's dispatch driver. I was the last vehicle back on ship (USS CASA GRANDE) I drove a weapons carrier (M-37) Got into a LOT of trouble. When we returned to CLNC it was the only vehicle to go through the main gate under it own power from my unit 2nd SHORE PARTY BN. 3 purple harts painted on hood.
