I'm doing it the best I can. It's more than I've ever even tried to do in my entire 29 years. I never could have dreamed of something like this happening, but God has been good to us and gotten us through so much. My husband's a marine.... he was willing to give his life to protect our country... I promise you I'll do all I can to save his too.

Laura and Glen333
None of those Drill Instructors sounds familiar with me. Different companies I suspect? As far as loving bootcamp. I needed the snot kicked out of me and my wise aZZ ways too. First pugle stick fight whack across the head he didn't knock me out but he did daze me. Then we were rematched and I jst well, got the last shot in. Damn straight.
Laura, please keep us up to date alot of Marines are looking for Marines too.
Semper Fi and keep up the good work Laura...!!!

His Series Gunny Sgt was Gunny Sgt Richardson, and his series commander was Lt Dieterly. My husband was one of 'em that was excellent with the pugle stick. (But I'm sure he got smacked quite a few times too) I found a page that had a lot of people looking for marines.... it was called Semper Fi Lost Buddies... If there's anyone who has never heard of that one - I'd be happy to share the address. It's now time for this one to go Night-Night - but thanks for all the help - Hope to talk to you all again.

List of names
I don't know if this will help any, but I got a small list of names from my husband. He doesn't remember their first names though And some of the names may not be spelled right, but here they are:
Small, McComas, Mathis, Davis, Muscovis, McPhearson, Dunlap, O'Brien, Lenard, Toleson, Thomleson, Hall, Vie, kinard, Skinner, Gilliam, and the only one He knows the first name of - Ray Tranthom.
Gilliam was from Indiana, Tranthom from Arkansas, and he thinks Hall was from Arkansas.
If anybody knows someone with this name that was in boot camp April 1973 - July 1973, then we might find a match
Thanks to everyone just for looking and trying to help, even if you don't know them, it's the thought that counts - so THANK YOU!!!!!
