Comments: Hi fellow NMCB 62 Viet Nam vetrens. I see recent posts from a couple of guys I served with in H - Company during 1968-69. Ray McDonald and Dennis Doherty, glad you're doing well! I remember Ray re-enlisted in country and his bonus ended up with his father buying a new car for him!
I was an SK3 In H Company in Dong Ha at Camp Barnes. I worked at the MLO yard on the hill issuing lumber supplies for various projects. We also hosted the Sunday barbecues up on the hill (steak,chicken and ice cream courtesy of the army). We were competing with the mess hall! My enlistment was up in May of 1970 and I left Gulfport in my blue Opel GT for California to complete my BS degree.
I retired from the mortgage business in 2008. When we're not home in Lake Forest, my wife of 17 years and I travel around the country in our 5th wheel trailer.
I'd like to hear from some of you who served with me.
