I guess we look different to WWII Marines also. We carried those light M-16 and they carried the heavy M-1. Times do change and I miss them but I'm glad I was there and I would go back again.
    I have a hard time putting into words what I think and saying what I mean sometimes but I try to let you know how I feel. These threads sure do help me get out thoughts that I have carried for years and never let anyone know what was in my mind.

    Hey Buddy,I was there early '65,had either utility cover or steel pot,also a noisey flak jacket,what a piece of crap.
    Carried the M14 and a .357 mag.
    Nothing like these youngsters have today..
    Wish we had their stuff then..
    The music brings back bad mems to me ,don't wish to listen..

    ecfree.....for YEARS, I looked for something positive to remember the good times I had in the Navy, and with the F.M.F. Truthfully, music of the time is the only "thing", that brings back the smiles, the innocent faces, and the bull sessions. I treasure the memory of those young MEN, as though they were my sons, or younger brothers.....GOD BLESS EVERY ONE OF THEM......DOC

    Rick....it's OK, I didn't mean that post as a *****, but there's a lot of old farts, on this site, that sometimes get 'Swamped", by their memories of Viet Nam. Music, of the 60's, helps bring back...positive memories for us, that's ALL I meant......DOC

    Redman I read your post in the mornin Zephyr. You have nuthin to apologize for. Did you read this sh-tbirds profile. Says he joined the Corps in 99, graduated boot in 05, and got out in 05. WTF?
    This guy couldn't find his ass with both hands and a flashlight. F-ck him. Says he's 32. F-ck you Thunder-Poser, Crawl back in your slimey wet hole of a life and leave these great Americans have their past. I personally want to hear the stories so I can pass them on, lest we forget what the Nam vet went through, and scarificed for future generations, and his brother/Marine. Semper Fi Redman, you are my big brother.

    I liked the Beach Boys. It's also funny that most of the Marines I knew and served with listened to Motown.
    When I was stationed back at PI we all listen to country back in the Charlie Pride and Johnny Cash days. Had a SSgt that liked Charlie Pride until he found out that he was black. Charlie never sounded black but I still liked him and always did.
    Then when I was trucking the song six days on the road came out and I would be pumped up driving home on a Friday night after being gone all week.
    Songs really got us through those days not matter what we did.
    I had a friend in Nam from Philly and he tried to teach me guitar and I got mad one night and busted it over somebody head. We listened to Proud Mary allot in Nam.
    Wouldn't take anything for my good memories.
    That's the thing I fought with after coming home was I made it back home alive and never wounded. I didn't feel worthy to have been spared.
