    Need help finding my platoon number

    Semper Fi - I had my platoon photo for many years. Graduated P.I. December 1969 - Woman Recruit Training Battalion. Lost photo. I'd like to get a new one but don't remember my Platoon Number or any DI names. Anyone know how I may go about finding it?

    Open mouth -insert foot
    Read his profile before
    opening mouth ???

    come on Bill -
    you are too good at this-
    to have made this mistake

    a copy of his DD214 should harvest
    dates that will enable either MCRD
    establish his graduation dates ?
    and work possible platoons from that ?

    good luck AlSimer ?

    Hey M14ED if you read the post it says I have the same problem as a female Marine.
    That's why I asked her if she was sure she went to San Diego or to Parris Island.. OK..

    It is way beyond me as to how a Marine forgets his/her Platoon number from Recruit Training. Same thing goes for Drill Instructor names. I was released from Recruit Training 64 years ago and still that information is embedded in my brain housing group.

    I was at a biker rally about 5-6 years ago and this "Marine" sitting at a table with 3 others waves at me to come over. He's got all these USMC patches on his vest and such and he tell me Semper FI. So I asked if he'd been in the Nam and he says of course. I asked him who he was with and he tells me he can't remember, dear in the headlight eyes. I leaned down to him and spoke so that his friends could here "You may forget your mother's name but no Marine forgets who he was with." Then I just walked away from the poser.
