"That'll teach me, to sign my own "light duty chit X 3 days".  With "Extension of Rx as needed".  Funny, it worked so often before.  Back in the day.   Golly Heck."

Hello.  That photo you shot and posted, it looks like the mail shed that we used to store mail in.  We had Conex Boxes lined up inside to store mail to keep it try during rain storms.  Was that shed closed to the Ramp and Texie way? Thanks  We started to use that shed 1966 I left July 1968. Thanks

Adrian,  Semper Fi! Was reading a few notes on the Corps School page and noted that you graduated in Apr 1968.  Our Company graduated 15APR68.  Company 27-68.  I have been able to contact about 44-46 of our group of 62 graduates. Some I missed by 2 weeks or 2 months. About 6 have died but none was killed in Viet Nam. I am guessing about 25 of us went to Viet Nam. I live in the same town (Fullerton) as another classmate that I went to school with. Met each other in a grocery store one afternoon. He had been with the 1st MARDiv and I with the 3rd. Will post another comment on the Corps Page....Terry

Yep, that was the one, and for this country boy it was a culture shock when we landed in Clark then rode the bus to Subic.

We may have been on the same flight in 69'. Sounded exactly like what I felt that same year.

Hi Adrian,

                I agree those were the days, one question for you in your days at Cubic Bay naval hospital can you confirm for me that there were indeed some wounded vietnamese children at the Hospital in 1969 I believe they may have been brought there by one of the Hospital ships.


Old shipmate,
