Fellow Charlie Company Marine
Whittier CA 90603
PFC DARLING and I were with Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines on Operation Union/Beaver Cage in the Que Son Valley when Albert met his fate.(He was actually a Battalion Lineman attached to C/1/3). Companies 'B', 'C', and 'D' were on a Sweep headed towards Hill 110, when Company 'B' was Ambushed by the NVA. Company 'B' requested Help, and a Platoon from Charlie Company was moving towards them, when the Platoon was AMBUSHED too. Charlie Company lost 7-KIA and many WIA that DAY. That Battalion had a total 22-KIA and 88-WIA with 3-NAVY CROSSES Awarded Posthumously, 2-NAVY CROSSES going to Charlie Company Marines. It was a TUFF DAY for Charlie Company, and the Battalion that Day. I ALWAYS Remember May 10th, each Year, and say a Prayer for the Guys. WE ALL had Good Friends taken that Day. Semper Fi, Don B C/1/3 67-68. (I am the Web master at , and we have information there about Our Battalion with some History of Vietnam there. Also, there is a list of the MEN who served in Charlie Company in case you might know or looking for a Marine from C/1/3. Know WE in C/1/3, DO REMEMBER Our Brothers on this WALL! Semper Fidelis and RIP My Brother!)

Thinking of you on this Veteran's Day... remembering every Memorial Day as a kid, placing a red geranium on your grave. Gone but not forgotten.

Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!
