George is looking for David Rose 1st Recon 68/69

Bruce Fogarty

My name is Bruce Fogarty. I have been looking for a fellow Marine that I served with in Vietnam. We were with Bravo Company, 1st recon Bn. On June 1st, 1970 Rufus was medivac out of country after being wounded on Charley Ridge. On that day we also lost Cpl Roe Hopson. Last year I visited Roe's family in Kentucky after searching over the years. The 3-4 hours we spent together was well worth the travel. I thought Rufus lived in Houston, Texas. I keep running into dead ends. If anyone has any information could you please contact me.

Association News.

Fred Neiser who is a cousin by marriage to Col. Arthur Sullivan, Bn. Co. Chu Lia 65/66, has donated to the 1st Recon Assn. the never used lighter the Col. kept on his desk during his tour at Chu Lai. The wick is still the original white along with the filler where lighter fluid is poured. Has a Bn. emblem on one side with 1st Recon Bn. above on the flip lid. On the bottom is printed "Memory....Made in Japan". Although not in what you could call mint condition it lives in the next block. Pretty good shape for a 40 year old lighter.


  In a continuing effort to make the site better and make things faster for those on dialup connections I have split the site into two categories. One for high speed cable and one for dialup.

I need someone on dialup to go to and click on "slow snoop & poop trail". Have a look around then give me feedback letting me know how fast the pages load.

Recon Cruise Nov. 5-10

Those signed up for the cruise

Doc & Carole Snider
Ray Hildreth
Randy & Tree Kendall
Don &Chris Streeter
Bruce & Bobbie Waite
Bob Morris & Julie Mooney

Donations were taken on the 1st Recon BS group to provide the finances for Sgt. Wright (1st Recon) & Cpl. Thatcher (2nd Recon) to attend the cruise. Both men lost limbs in Iraq and are presently at Walter Reed Hospital. Also included are Sgt Eric Kocher & his wife who will be transporting Wright & Thatcher to and from the cruise. Sgt Kocher was WIA at the same time Wright lost both hands in 04 and was a Plt. Sgt with 2nd when Thacher lost one leg below the knee in 05.
Although donations were generous they fell short of what is needed. If you feel these individuals deserve a little payback for their sacrifices please contribute to their cruise fund.
Those who wish to contribute please contact me.
