Welcome home from an Army Grunt, My company (565th Trans ) was attached to the 3rd MAF for about 6 months. Never knew much about the fource except for the work we were doing, so I was just on a information hunt about the unit as a whole. we always got along well with you garheads, had some good and bad times, the Navy guys could be trying sometimes so we ususly hung out with you guys. We turned into brothers in the end. Thanks and good luck. JLG RVN 67-70

I spent my time with the H & S Co., III MAF at Camp Horn 1969-1970. I remember the bar fight we were in at the e-club with the Army (We won). One big gently sargent who took on the army guys (He won and got busted). I remember a guy name Golden from Calif, we hitch hiked to an army base to get our G.E.D (We passed), a guy named Louis Carver from New York who was my best friend (Brown Belt). A guy in the band who was so hairy that he shaved the hair off of his chest and belly to look like a peace sign (Played rock music). The Rok Marines who took no prisoners (Bad Dudes). I rembr the guys who try to write up a drunk Lt. (All of them got busted) The guy that commited suicide in the laundry room (Before he came back to the world). The guy who fraged his Captain (Stayed on #10's), and Banks who went crazy (Sent to Japan). The rockets hitting our base (Miss me). Going to China Beach for fire pratice (tat tat tat boom). The sargent who drank Obese and stayed up for 4 days (yawn). I want to tell all my brothers who died in Vietnam, and to all my brothers who came back. .....Semper Fi......Give me 10

Welcome Home! I was at CIB from Sept. 1968 to Sept. 1969. I was the asst editor of the Sea Tiger until I left. It appears our times there overlapped for 2-3 months, but I'm sorry I can't remember you. I remember three Marines in the motor pool while I was there--the only name that comes to mind is Olin Baker. I can't remember when he rotated but he was from Denton, Texas. I sure would like to hear from some of the other guys at CIB.

I took a look at the photos and boy did it bring back memories. I was also known as Mousey, but my real name is Herman. I went thru Boot Camp with Dave Gonzales and a few of the other guys that weere with us at Camp Horn in '68. Just wanted to say hey and welcome home. I went back to Nam in July 1970 thru Aug 1971 and served in the bush with both Bravo 1/5 and Charlie 1/1. Was way differant than DaNang that's for sure. Well anyways if you remember me drop me a line. I am now living in Phoenix, AZ and working for Goodrich Turbomnachinery Products as a manufacturing engineer. Semper Fi Marine!

I arrived in Feb'66 assigned to SU#2, 3rdMarDiv. This SU was being formed to become HQ, IIIMAF in Mar '66. I have the Order creating HQ, IIIMAF someplace. We were originally assigned to a 'tent city' across the street from Dogpatch, not far from the DaNang Airfield. In May '66 we relocated to what was Camp Horn next to the river on the other side of the DaNang Airfield. I have absolutely no recollection of this place being called Camp Horn, but doesn't mean that's not what it was called. I don't recall seeing such a sign, but maybe I just wasn't used to seeing it or didn't notice it.
I spent my entire tour with H&S Co, HQ, IIIMAF rotating out in Mar. '67. I was the Admin Chief or Chief Clerk of Force MT. LtCol Tonnacliff was the MTO, curious what happened to him. The Ass't MTO was Maj Robert Tashjian who left to become the CO, 11thMT about the time I was leaving. I think that's the unit he left for. He's retired and living in KY.
My first boss was MSgt Orville Jones, who came to fetch me when I arrived at the company office when we lived in tent city. Our office was a CP tent at the time. MSgt Jones was the driver of Chesty Puller during and after the Korean War. After Jones rotated he'd be promoted to MGySgt, and later retired while at CamLej...he later opened an antique store. He died a few years ago.
I arrived a LCpl, promoted to Cpl in Mar '66 and to Sgt in Dec '67. Rank was good.
Dennis Kapolka worked in G-5,
Gil Garcia worked for the Staff CommO. Does anyone know either of them? I know where Dennis is, but can't find Gil. He might be in TX someplace maybe in the Corpus Christi or Galveston area.
Ck my profile on Togetherweserved.com. I'll look for some photo's I might have, but Dennis has quite a few I think, he was forever taking photo's. I'll advise him of this site and see if I can get him to check in.

I served with III MAF Drum & Bugle Corps from 12/66 thru 6/68. We worked with the Passification Program, built bunkers and stood guard. One day, shortly after Gen. Cushman had taken command from Lew Walt, I had the distinction of having my ass chewed out personally by the General. I was on a guard post when two men came strolling by. They were dressed in white tennis outfits and carrying rackets. I didn't recognise 'em and was thinkin' USO or something. Cushman is on me like stink on s**t. Then, hitching up his shorts, he turns to his friend and says,''You see Bob; THIS is the kind of materiel we have to work with, now.

Wow! I just found this on my son's Facebook. Thanks, Bil. Yup, this is were your mother and I first met as Pen Pals. I have many stories to share as a III MAF Bandsman (Piccolo/Grenadier in the Reactionary Platoon). It's going on 41 years of marriage now, and I must say that in spite of the attack on September 6, 1969, that was the greatest month of my life in meeting her. What an answer to my prayers she has been. Still suffering from PTSD, God has shown me that what Satan meant for bad, He has used it for good. I pray that all my fellow Vietnam Vets are fairing well. Read Proverbs 3:5-6. It has been my guiding post in life. "Semper Fi" in Christ, Bill Clemons, Captain USMC/Retired

I was at Camp Horn May 71- Dec 71. Came out of the bush with 101st from Camp Evans. Was enlisted aide to LTGs Sullivan and Dolvin. Worked mostly the General's Mess Club. Some in the Protocol Section. I have been back to Vietnam a number of times in the last 15 years. As of last trip Camp Horn was still there, but they had built a school on the parade ground. Rest of buildings were fairly intact.

I was doing a random search for my name and noticed your page, "Camp Horn", with photos of my father, Cpl Ronald Crafton. I am also a Marine who served in Iraq and just recently returned home from Afghanistan on Christmas night 2011. I would like to thank you all for paving the way for me to become a Marine and become part of the legacy that you all built. I have passed on this link to my father and tried to contact Mr Barnett but the email and phone number links must be bad.

I was with 2nd platoon B Company 504th MP From Dec 1970 to Feb 1972 at Camp Horn. We were refered to by the rest of the company as the palace guard due to our plush conditions compared to the rest of the company. Because of all the brass in the camp, we had flush toilets, access to the swimming pool, handball tennis courts etc. They even built a steambath on the post complete with massuses. It was usually pretty boring during my tour so we generated our own excitement. Thanks for setting up this site, maybe I'll hear from old friends and enemies.

Thanks for the site. I was with the Photo Imagery Interpretation Unit from Feb 69 to Mar 70. I believe the band hooch was right next to ours. I do remember a helicopter crash near the the mail room and the ammo dump going off. Does anyone remember the gas fire near the PX. There was a Marine, I believe he was Gunny, that was badly burned shutting off the fuel supply. I had heard that he had died in route to Japan but hope that was not the case. If anyone remembers this and or knows what happened to the Marine I would appreciate hearing from them. The wounds were not combat related but that Marine deserves the highest honors. I do have some pictures of Camp Horn and will try to get them to you. Thanks again and Semper Fi.

From CIB III, MAF July 69-March 70, Great to see so many responses to our Unit organization and the loyalty to us who served.
To Jim Lasseter, sorry but I changed email addresses and move since the last time I mailed you about the Press Center some time in 2004.
I do have some Picturs I will dig up if you still want.

Ken Deore, I did not get to meet you but I am sure we shared the same digs at the center along with it's amenities. I did some time with the press corps myself as an escort and such, down town Da Nang and elsewhere.
I recall one one trip to the Air Port to pick up the Sea Tiger , seeing an F-4 take the right wing tip off an Air Viet Nam DC-3 right above my head as I passed under the two runways.

Nasty event to say the least.
As far as the press corps, what a great bunch of men (and women in the day). Made friends that lasted for many years. One in particular, Dale Dye, who has done well for himself in Hollywood doing movies. Got drunk with that guy more times than Ho Chi Minh had hairs on his face. Gary Shepard, CBS and I had a great reunion in California in 85 along with Dale and his new bride( at that time) and others.

Best to all who served and continue to porotect our great nation.

I picked up your post on the "Found Comrades" web site. I was the editor of the Sea Tiger news from March 1968 to about Jan 1969 at the CIB in Danang. I was shipped back in Feb 1969. I am looking for any contacts you may have. I am also looking for anyone who has any copies of the Sea Tiger Mag/Newspaper from that time?? Does Jim Lasseter have any contact info??

I do remember the press center, the Hospital Ship (German name I think..), The twin bridge over the river . I also remember going out with the press reporters for their "peek" at the war.. I went up to Hue (after mid-March 1968) with a team.
I remember that once a week I would drive into Danang air base to pick up the Sea Tiger bundles for distribution. At that time Danang was a "closed city", so that was somewhat risky. The Sea Tiger was printed up in Japan then shipped down to the air base. Anyway, I got to spend two weeks up in Tokyo (sort like R&R).

Any help in locating fellow Marines would be appreciated!!

Thanks for the site. First photos of Camp Horn I've seen. Was there 1968-69, was administrative assistant for Generals Cushman and Anderson. I was also their photographer and have tons of photos. I'll try to start putting them together.

I'd appreciate hearing from anyone from those days. I especially appreciated the aerial photos of the Camp. Didn't see the houses they built on the river for the generals.

Thanks again....more when I think about it.

I spent my time with the H & S Co., III MAF at Camp Horn 1969-1970. I remember the bar fight we were in at the e-club with the Army (We won). One big gently sargent who took on the army guys (He won and got busted). I remember a guy name Golden from Calif, we hitch hiked to an army base to get our G.E.D (We passed), a guy named Louis Carver from New York who was my best friend (Brown Belt). A guy in the band who was so hairy that he shaved the hair off of his chest and belly to look like a peace sign (Played rock music). The Rok Marines who took no prisoners (Bad Dudes).

I served with H&SCo, III MAF, Camp Horn, RVN from November 1968 to November 1969. I was a Sergeant and a Military Court Reporter. As I recall, a Colonel White was the CO of H&SCo when I got there and General Cushman was the CG III MAF. I retired from the USMC in February 1986 as a Mustang Captain. I do have some photos from my Vietnam tour and will dig them out of storage, digitize them, and email them to you. Semper Fi. Captain Burl D. Bolton, USMC (Ret.)

Welcome Home! I was at CIB from Sept. 1968 to Sept. 1969. I was the asst editor of the Sea Tiger until I left. It appears our times there overlapped for 2-3 months, but I'm sorry I can't remember you. I remember three Marines in the motor pool while I was there--the only name that comes to mind is Olin Baker. I can't remember when he rotated but he was from Denton, Texas. I sure would like to hear from some of the other guys at CIB.

Not sure I remember you but your name sounds familiar. I was looking thru some Nam era web sites and decided to do a search for our unit III MAF and low and behold yours came up. I took a look at the photos and boy did it bring back memories. I was also known as Mousey, but my real name is Herman. I went thru Boot Camp with Dave Gonzales and a few of the other guys that weere with us at Camp Horn in '68. Just wanted to say hey and welcome home. I went back to Nam in July 1970 thru Aug 1971 and served in the bush with both Bravo 1/5 and Charlie 1/1. Was way differant than DaNang that's for sure. Well anyways if you remember me drop me a line. I am now living in Phoenix, AZ and working for Goodrich Turbomnachinery Products as a manufacturing engineer. Semper Fi Marine!

Just saying hi. Was with 3rd MAW 72-73, spent some time at Bien Hoa AF with MAG 12 in 72, and at Namphong, Thailand (the Rose Garden). Misplaced chopper pilot in a fixed wing world. Passed through DaNang a couple of times. Great site, good luck, and welcome home yourself.
