    My e-mail is edward.cribb@yahoo.com. Would love to hear from you.
  4. Hello HM2-RXDoc Cribb-Wow-you replaced Big Willy-one of the finest people I've ever met in my life.Very good Pharmacist-most intelligent-and a hell of a decent person.He went to Navy Pharmacy School-I'm pretty sure he completed his College on the outside.He trusted only me-with the Narcotics keys -when he went to Hawaii to see his wife on R&R.I was truly honored.Do you Know -Jeffery Butler HM3-HM1 Jones Doesn't seem to remember.OH -there is an HM1 Jones that was also At MWSG-17 Dispensary.You will have to look further back a little to read his messages.Were you there when a Hutch took a direct 122 rocket-that killed everyone in the Hooch.Then you would know my friend-don't remember his rank-Little Joe.A good guy. Very strange place MWSG-17-if you read some of my past MWSG-17 posts.Sometimes it was dead at the Dispensary-We watched TV-then things would happen.Really a very un safe place.Corpsman weapons were taken away.....At any time A Marine could enter your Hutch and blow everyone away.I was once in the chow hall -eating chow and a bullet came through the corrugated tin roof.If a florescent light set-up wasn't there-the bullet would have gone right through the top of my head.Very nice speaking to you...Sent you a Friendship Thing-you'll see-some times on this site-when you post something-it never makes it to posting..Very strange...Bye for now--Allan Wilder

    This might sound a little strange to you, but what the hell.....
    A while back I looked up H&MS 17 via Google. Somewhat to my surprise I got a hit (the only one) where 'Big Al' (Bert Kinyon) had just posted a question whether anyone was in H&MS 17 in '68, '69. I responded that I had been in that outfit, during that time frame. Bert responded almost immediatly, referring to me as Rocketman. To say that I was floored would be an understatement. Not only did he remember me, he recognized me by my real name and how I was known back then. Bert then got me connected to a couple of other friends from then - Andy Anderson & Doug Beckstead.

    For the majority of my life I have felt 'socially invisible', so to be remembered over 40 years later was a complete, but very pleasant shock. When you said you remembered Rocketman, the same feeling came over me. The fact that I remembered you guys didn't translate into assuming you guys would remember me - go figure. I cannot express how much this has meant to me, but let me assure you it was a really good feeling.
    Last fall Andy and I attended a get-together for veterans of the First Marine Air Wing Vietnam in South Carolina. Didn't run into anyone I knew, but it was still a kick. One of the things we did was go to Parris Island and watch a class graduate from boot camp. That was something I never expected to do, and it turned out to be really cool. The Marines on the base even arrainged to give us a tour, which was also a kick. They really treated us like VIP's.

    Andy lives in Portland, and has worked for the VA since shortly after getting out of the Marines. He is a lab tech, doing things like electrophoresis. He was a flare kicker in Vietnam. Bert did a lot of stuff, including acting in movies. The latter part of his career he was a spokesperson for Intel. I have mostly been some sort of 'cone-head', either working with electronics or programming computers. My wife and I retired in '99, before we were 50 but now we are looking to get back into some sort of career. Retirement is OK, but you never get a day off from it and all my friends are still working. Besides I really enjoyed working and had a lot of fun doing it.
    Hopefully your life has been fun & rewarding as well. Do you have kids? What kinds of things do you do for fun?
  10. Hey Doc Wilder, don't recall you, I was with 1stBn., 28thMar., May 67 through Oct. 67. I was 2nd class in charge of medical supply, so if you were on board you probably got supplies from me. Col. Moore, as I recall, CO, MoMo Moore. Were you on Operation Alligatory Hide? We were the defenders against 26th Mar., as I recall. Long time ago.
