I was battalion chaplain with 2/5 from Sept 68 thru
May 69. One of the defining moments was operation Meade River. Serving with the Marine Infantry - and the best of the best, 2/5 - was a great priviledge and honor. Spent 21 days in the hospital with Malaria and shrapnel.

My name is Doc Hartley I produly served with 1st bat 4th Marines Charlie, Bravo, & Delta companies Jan 1 thru Aug 7th 1966.
I too am looking for the surviors of "Cherry Charlie" company. You see, when C company lost it's cherry, it lost most of it's capability as a cohesive fighting unit, and was merged into Bravo & delta company's. I am trying to find a Red head Lcpl from Oregon, I think Bend, Oregon who saved my life and a few others. I told some spit and polished Colonal in strached fatigues, that he and another brother both need to be nominated for valor. They wanted to nominate me for the silver star. Anyway, I got saved right after again, by the death of my 8 year brother and got a free pass to go home on emergency leave. My new unit Bravo company & Delta from 1- 4 went back into the shit, up around Khsan. Saw it on TV while on leave. Holy crap that was a nightmare. Never got back to the Nam.
Need to reconcile some old wounds, and say many many thanks.

As a third geneation veteran I served proudly in the United States Army (HHC 11th Aviation Brigade) in Saudi Arabia and Iraq during Desert Shield and Desert Storm. I followed in the honored foot steps of My cousin SGT Richie O'Hare B 1/17 Cav 82nd Airborne Division Viet Nam 1968-1969, My father PFC John J. McGowan F CO 502PIR 101st Airborne Division - D day, WWII and, My grandfather S1C William J McGowan US Navy WWI. My fellow soldiers and I served with honor and valor in the Persain Gulf. We served well because we learned well from the generations of Veterans who fought before us before us. I am mindful of the Viet Nam war movie "We Were Soldiers Once" The title is a misnomer because we are soldiers always! No amount of time, political manuverings or bad press can ever wash away the blood shed and sacrifices made. To my Cousin Richie and to all Viet Nam Veterans thank You for standing tall and teaching younger Veterans like myself the true meaning of Duty, Honor and Country. Let us pray for our brother and sister veterans who are currently shedding their blood in Iraq.Let their sacrifices for us not be in vain. Lest we forget!!! Soldier On!!!

Here it is 40 years to the month later and I find myself looking back. I served at the Station Hospital across from the helicopter base, Mag 16, between May 1967 through June 1968. I`ve often wondered about some of the wounded who passed through there. Memories I wish I could forget but know I can`t.
