I was also in Chu Lai in 1969 in the Com/Nav shop. I got into the country around Feb. of 1969, and was there until we were transferred to Japan. I also have a copy of the Falcon cruise book. Are you the Sgt. Walter J. Pemberton that I remember. I have had my book all this time, and for the 1st time, I sat down and read through it. And I took the time to look at all the pics and see who I remembered. Actually quite a few.
Have you had any contacts with any one else from that time in Nam ?
Hope to hear from you.

I looked you up in the book and You are siting next to me on the sand bags.
There are several others who have posted on this page.
I wish I had started looking sooner because a reunion was held last year.
I was transfer out to VMFA-315 when 334 went to Japan.
My e-mail address is email@example.com By the way the "J." was really an "L."

I looked you up in the cruse book and I remember you. I worked in Com/Nav but helped with the bombs sometimes. You know anything about Jerry Wasick, Bob Caldwell or Ray Turner? I hung around with them some what.
So long for now.

Cpl. John Vickers
I ran across a message on the Leatherneck link about Cpl. John
Vickers. I did not know your dad, but when I looked up his picture in
"The Falcon" cruise book I recognize him. From the book, it looks like
he was in hydraulics...correct ? I'm not sure if you have seen the book
I am talking about, with his picture in. If you do not have it, I
would gladly scan his picture and e-mail it to you. It is a picture of
him by himself with a big smile on his face ! Just having a great time
Just get back with me if you would like a copy of the picture.

I'm assuming that this post was meant for me, I didn't know my dad's rank at the time was that of Cpl. but i would love to see the picture but yes he was in the hydraulics group with VMFA-334. I did find a bunch of picture that he had taken while in country.
My name is Shane, if its not any trouble I'm sure my mother and sisters would love to see the picture
my email is email@example.com
