    TBS December 1964; Chu Lai 1965-67

    I am interested in finding "old timers" who graduated from Quantico TBS in December 1964 or who served in MAG-12 in the early years of Chu Lai. Also, anyone with Chu Lai photos from that timeframe.....

    Bob, I just read your message. My Dad is Lt. Col. Rex Wilson (USMC-Ret.). He was EX and Col. Les Brown was CO of MAG 12 in Chu Lai/1965. I was over at my parents today; my Dad just happened to show me a group photo of MAG 12 during that time frame. If you would still like a copy I will be happy to mail/scan (if I can get my scanner to work) to you. Please let me know.

    Sincerely from a very PROUD Marine's daughter,
    Karen

    I have some photos on this site under my name in the Photo Gallary, but they are photos of grunts 65 and 66 Chu Lai (kilo 3/7), there are some photos of Helicopter on LZs. Eventually, I will get around to putting more on the site.

    Karen....MAG-12 Chu Lai

    Karen...

    great to hear from you. I arrived in Chu Lai in Feb 1966. I remember your Dad's name and Les Browns although I can't remember for sure if they were still there when I got there. The MAG-12 CO I served under for the longest time was Jay Hubbard, who passed away last year.

    I have found some of the other officers I served with, some of whom were among the original landing party in 1965.... maybe your dad knew Ed Rolita, Dick Milller or Vic Britt.

    I would love any pictures you have and I have some I can send in your direction. Send diurectly to BobTate@aol.com.

    Thank you and give your Dad a "Semper Fi" for me.

    Bob

    I was a radar tech in the gca unit that landed in may of 65. There was no base when we came ashore. I have pictures taken in the fall of 65 . I was on hand for the first fixed wing landing. I left chu lai in Jan. of 66. I have those pictures on a cd which I could copyand send to you if desired.

    I served in Chu Lia Viet Nam with Mabs 12 and believe Lt. Col Wilson was the Co. I served with First Sgt Shields, and Warrent Offficer Brennan. I am trying to verfy this. Can the Colonel name some of the people he remembers, officers & enlisted. I would drive him about the garrison on occasions. I rermember a Lcpl Janko, who was transferred to the grunts, A Lcpl Joe Bradly. I remember the Col as tall blonde headed man.

    I was there during that time. Was your Dad
    CO of MABS 12 or MAG 12? Does he remember the Mabs 12 Co at the time and First Sgt?

    The only question was when this was taken, because the huts in the back ground were not there in my tour. We where all still in tents. But second from right sitting & standing may have been the MABS 12 Co.
