    Comm Co, Hq Bn, 2nd Mar Div, Camp Lejeune.

    October 1964 to October 1965.

    Came close to going to Dom Rep April 1965 when entire base was put on alert.
    Only the Air Naval Gunfire platoon and others who were constantly training in the field were chosen to go.

    Bldg 1740 (long gone) was our communications compound, some distance away from our barracks.

    Hmm...if that's the case it appears I can chime in.

    USS Princeton LPH-5 - BLT 1/5 - W/2/11 - all Ops with the Fighting Fifth.
    Feb. 15 '66 we departed Long Beach for a 2 day stop in Hawaii for supplies then off to P.I.
    Spent a couple days there, a 3 day (I think) field training Op on Mindoro and a 10 mile forced march.
    Then off to VN....first Op was Jackstay beginning 3/26/66.
    After two Ops (Jackstay and Osage) we docked at Chu Lai (May 8, 1966), climbed down the rope ladder onto small troop transports heading into Chu Lai.

    We only passed through Chu Lai for supplies/ammo and then we headed north.

    Carry on....a safe weekend to all.

    just a note about "lock & load" he was Chris Sarno from Medford Mas---well read writer often sought out for his knowledge about the Korean war----He passed away last year from complications of diabetes---it was my pleasure to know Chris & his family his younger brother Bob & I served together briefly as he had 4 days to go when I was going to water supply school in 1960--we ended up together again working for the local gas comp retired together in 98 we remain the best of friends to this day

    sounds like you were in about the same time as I was. I was on the USS Princeton going to 1st MAW HQ as chief legal clerk, been so long ago but I think it was sometime in 64. If I remember correctly some went to Vietnam and some of us went to Japan like I did. I belong to the official "Old Farts Club" am 73 now so without trying to find my old orders I have to try to use an old mans memory!!

    Spent 3 years at working in Pendletons 1st Division Hqs legal office before I transferred to Japan. Had to extend my enlistment 4 months to be able to go to Iwankuni and then when Vietnam broke out big time a large group of Marines were extended 4 months so I put 8 months in longer than I originally signed for. Last couple of months were spent at Quantico which I didn't care for, the officers there were a lot different than Wing officers, Quantico was the show place for the Marines as far as I could tell.
