1st Platoon

Postby BobAverill » Sat Oct 16, 2010 12:30 pm

Here are some the 1st Plt. Marines at Camp Carroll in Feb of '68. we had just come off of Mikes Hill and now were occupying lines on the east side of Carroll. Always hated that as it met improving the fighting holes, reinforcing the bunkers, and for an escape- convoy security or road sweep in the AM. Time has eroded my memory but going from left to right I believe is the 1st Squad Ldr, Plat Radioman(Arbratus-sp?) one of the grenediers whose M79 only fired when he closed it, me, another squad Ldr, squad member, our Doc, and another squad ldr. Sorry I can't remember any names, Hope someone else does and fills in the blanks.
