I was in 81's in 1965-66 I came ashore in DaNang with 3/9 on 8-15-65. we hit the beach aboard landing crafts. I was transferred to 1/9 only a few days then to 2/9 in November 65. Made Harvest Moon Operation with Hotel 2/9 , also was attached to other Companies but spent a lot of time with Hotel .. Had a real bad night fighting Cong on 4-16-66 attached to Hotel. where are all you 81 marines or Hotel Marines during this time.

Tom I was HQ FAC teams 11/65-10/66. Like you we would be attached to different Cos for ops. We were "outsiders" and didn't get to know anyone. Good luck finding past comrades.
