    From my husband's papers

    Hi all,
    I found this in the package of military records from the government, a letter Gene had written about his time in the Marines.

    "I landed in South Viet Nam around the 4th of July 1965 with headquarters Batter, 2Bn. 12th Marines. I was transferred to Foxtrot Battery 2Bn 12th Marines around Sept. 1 1965. I was placed on a Forward Observer Team and was attached to india Co. 3-9 at DaNang Airfield around the latter part of the month I was attached to Alpha Co 1-9 until the 1st of Oct. when I was transferred back to India Co 3-9. I was with India Co 3-9 until Christmas of 1965, when I went to R&R to Okinawa. Back to Viet nam i was attached to Mike Company 3-3 and was there until my rotation back to the states in March of 1966. Eugene Lee Neese, Jr.

    By the way he was 17 1/2 at the time. Had to get his parent's permission to join the Marines.
