  1. Mcvet, your dad was just before me. Might have been in the 3rd Marines
    Ostogary, howya doing? Merry Christmas to you, too.
    Bailes, The whole 9th Marines climbed together in June 1957. I think it was mountain side. Can't really remember. I know they landed helos on the parade ground at Middle Camp sometimes.

    Hello Kent, My Dad was stationed at Camp Fuji, Japan around 1954-55. Not really sure of the exact dates. He passed away in 1999. I have some old pictures of him in my photos on this site. SF and Merry Christmas.
