I knew your name was familiar. I don't know why I am listed as the founder of this site. I don't know about any patch. The guy that started this Navy Veteran Site is listed on the opening page.

Hey Jay - we have talked on Facebook - were at Pendleton around the same time.  I tried to find an FMSS "group" on facebook, without success.  I did however find this site. So far, no hits from anyone in my old company.  Did you create this group in NAVY VETERANS? 

PS: Do u know how I night get a patch to match the logo in this group.....? 

 

Thanks

TIM

I was in E6709 Delta Company October 1967......went to Nav Hosp Oakland, CA , and then to USNMCB10 ( Seabee Battalion Corpsman )  Was originally a corpsman styker on the USS Coral Sea CVA-43 on Yankee Station ( Tonkiin Gulf )

Looking for anyone else who might have been at Pendleton when I was there.

The 'meh' was for the offer to create another command.  'Meh' means 'it's not important'.  What did you think I meant?

Thank you for the disrespect David! Meh - really?

Comment by David King on December 22, 2013 at 7:55pm

Meh.

Welcome! You can request from the room owner to build your own command, I have a couple of requests pending. If you want LeJunne, K Bay or some other base/command submit the request.

Semper Fi and thank you for your service!
