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

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