My name is Kaitlin Roberts, and the reason I'm writing you is because I produce a podcast called Heavyweight. On the show, we look at a moment from someone's past that's been bothering them -- some unanswered question or regret they have -- and try to sort through that moment in a helpful way. Recently, a woman named Angel Velotta reached out to us. Her father is James Edwards, who served in Vietnam during 1967 in the Third Battalion, Fourth Marines. Angel's parents divorced when she was young and the only time she ever got to see her father was at his funeral. Angel's mother doesn't like to talk about James, and for so many years, Angel has wanted to know who her father was and what his life was like. We're hoping to help her find some answers, and I thought you might know James Edwards or know of someone in the Third Battalion, Fourth Marines who might remember him. You can contact me at this email address or by phone at 847-924-6557. Kaitlin 28 Jun 17

Looking for friends of Johnny Robers platoon 169. Graduated June 1 1966 parris island. Ssgt. F.L. Blackwood 6 Nov 16
I am looking for a Marine with the last name Parker who was stationed at Camp Pendleton fall of 1961. On my mother’s deathbed she revealed that this person may be my sister’s father, my own father raised her as his own but on his deathbed he confirmed that my mom and dad were separated for a time and when they reconciled my mom was pregnant. The shame my mom felt prohibited her from revealing this information for so many years that all she can remember about this man is that his last name is Parker and he was at Camp Pendleton, they dated briefly in the fall of 1961. If you can point me in the direction of records that would also be awesome. Vicki Higman. 6 Nov 16

I am not sure if this is the right place to start and if not maybe you can point me in the right direction. I am in search of a Marine that was stationed at Camp Pendleton in the early 1980's. Her Maiden name is Diana Gutierrez and would be in her mid to late 50's at this time. During her time at Camp Pendleton she she located a brother of hers that was given up for adoption at birth in 1963. His adopted name is Fabian Rios and at the time he was living in San Antonio Tx. Shortly after Fabian went to prison and was unable to keep in contact with her. He remembers finding out that he and she have several siblings. The only other he remembers the name of who would be late 50's to early 60's by the name of Guadalupe Gutierrez who was in Pueblo, Colorado. Fabian does not know how to use a computer or even where to begin so i am trying to help him locate his birth family that contacted him so many years ago. The only other information he can remember is that Diana married an African American man that may have also been in the Marines and may have also been stationed at Camp Pentleton at the same time. Any help or what steps to take would be greatly appreciated. Michele Lamb 20 Sep 15
Hello my name is Eve. I'm not even sure where to begin but I'm hoping whoever reads this will understand. I am looking for a Mike Smith who would have been stationed at camp pendleton in 75-76.

I am trying to locate any Marines that knew or served with my late Brother, Edward Pickrell SGT, VMA-211. Ed joined the Corps on September 12, 1952 ( I am not sure if that was 12 or 16 weeks) at Parris Island. How can I find out what Platoon that was as they graduated in early 1953 and then they went to Memphis and Jacksonville FL. Eventially he sailed on the USS Wright en route to Korea with AD4 aircraft. Ed loved the Corps and spoke highly about a DI named SGT Bonnifant (spelling?). Thank you in advance of any information out there that is available. I want to try and pass his info on before I meet up with him someday Semper Fi!" P.E "Packy" Pickrell; Mt Airy MD 301-788-8369 Cel 16 Apr 12

I am trying to locate any information on My grandfather who went missing during a search and rescue mission on the East Coast. My grandfather was Master Sargent Gerald Alan Moreau. He was a member of the Marine Attack Squadron 542 based out of Cherry Point, North Carolina. He served during WWII and Korea. He was a Radar Navigator on the Douglas F3D Skyknight. On November 14, 1954 his plane abandoned a typical training mission to help locate a downed Navy aircraft that was in the same area. A naval harpoon or "flying boat" crashed with 5 men aboard near Pamlico Sound, VA. My grandfather's aircraft went in search of the downed plane only to then be lost themselves. Their last contact with the control tower was at 9pm. The coast guard and other navy aircraft searched for months for any sign of the F3D, with no luck. There was a memorial service held in January 1955 for my grandfather and his other two crew members after they were presumed dead, yet no body has ever been recovered. He is listed as MIA and all cemetery records searches have come up empty . He served from 1945-1954. Before being stationed at Cherry Point he was previously at El Toro Marine Base in Southern California. I am hoping that someone out there knew him and shed light on what happened/what kind of person he was. I also would like to find someone that has knowledge of what happened, more than the archives can provide, as I am waiting for a copy of his DD214. If you can help me or someone can, please contact me at 20 Mar 12

I had a close friend I have lost track of. He went to school in Washington DC when I did in early '70's then he went to Parris Island for boot camp. I think he did go to Viet Nam. I reconnected with him in about 1980-1982 and then we lost track again. His family lives in Maryland close to D.C., assuming they are still there. His name is Hubert (Butch) Turner. Its a long shot but thought I would try. Thanks if you can help. Thank you for your service. That is probably most important. Kathy (Minahan) Liddle 12 Mar 12

I am trying to fill in the gaps of my father's Marine career. I have many items he gathered and would like to put some information with them before I give them to my children. From his discharge papers I know he enlisted in early 1942 in Birmingham Alabama. He was a corporal. He was in Guam and the Marinas. I'm assuming he was part of the initial attack on Okinawa because his papers list April 1 as the date he arrived there. He was listed as artillery, bayonet and 745FLZ. He is listed as leaving Okinawa in August 1945(I may have that date wrong). It only then lists his discharge date as January 1946 in Illinois. I know he was in Northern China. He did speak of this part of his Marine career, because apparently he had one great time. He often told stories about spending time with some Chinese mayor and his family. I have a good amount of pictures and uniform pins and bars but no information as far as his regiment, platoon, company etc. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Even if you can give me some direction to search I would be greatful. The more reading I do about the Pacific arena and the places my Father spent time it just makes me wonder how he came back to become a loving husband and a Father I dearly loved. I never knew how brave he must have been. I can be reached at 29 Feb 12

Liberty Bridge, February early March 69, Looking for guys who remember a Medevac that took place outside the gate at sundown. volunteer squad of transients found two WIAs in high grass about 3/4 mile NE of gate. Joined by squad led by Lt. Medevac came at Sundown and medevac chopper left as it got dark. Chance that the Lt's squad might have been from H&S 1-5. There were three squads: 1 - the patrol squad that got ambushed. One WIA was the squad leader, 30s married with kids. He ordered the rest of the squad to leave him behind and go after the NVA. Don't tell thats crazy. I thought so too at the time. 2 - The volunteer squad was transients waiting for a ride at the gate, Non-infantry. 3 - The Lt's squad. From Liberty Bridge, moved like regular infantry. Besides the squads, there were the two gate guards and a mess sgt who was supposed to take care of the volunteers afterwards. I suspect he was the guy killed 19 MAR 69 defending the chow hall. Snuffy Jackson HQ 2-13, Echo 2-13, Lima 4-11 & Charlie 1-11 1968-69. 1 Jun 10

My name is Joe R. Martinez and I was stationed in the Marine Corps Subic Bay Cubic Point Phillipines from 1961-1962. I am looking for Marine buddies serving at Cubic Point where I suffered a horrible experience. A perpetrator awakened me in my sleep attempting to kill me and while I was trying to unravel his mistaken confusion he shot me in the head. This resulted in massive bleeding on the right side of my head. Fellow marines woke up to assist me while I was wrestling with this perpetrator until such time that he was subdued. I was taken and treated at Cubic Point Naval dispensary. The action apparently resulted in a conviction and prison time. Since that period of time as a young Marine until now at 65 years of age, I have struggled with the incident but have managed to remain silent. I now have a need to speak up because I feel I need therapy from this near death incident that affects me in the follow way; I frequently think of the incident, bad dreams are a problem, I keep avoiding the issue but won't go away, I isolate myself a lot. I can't see media or movie violence because I get reminded of the event and in some troubled way get very emotional. I sleep only three or four hours a day, I am highly reactive to mild problems, and noises are very troublesome. I need to remain working all the time to feel comfortable. Please contact me at (956) 645-1655 or 24 May 10

My name is Phil Rogers. My Father was Major William W. Rogers, USMC. He went ejected from his Crusader F8C on April 17th, 1964. I was just two years old at the time. I am interested in hearing from some of the men who served with him or witnessed his last flight. According to his brothers, there were questions raised at the time about his disappearance, but when his oldest brother came back from trying to get more info he reported that the family was told not to ask anymore questions. Case closed. I have waited this long to research this only out of consideration for my mother and step-father, whom she met and married in 1966. It would be great to finally get something more than the article below for closure. 20 Jun 09

Would like to know more of how he served our country as he would not talk much about it. Any info helpful, thanks so much. Cassandra Harman Paquin 1 Apr 09

When I was cleaning out a garage almost 30 years ago I came across a small box with some very old photos and I started to look through them. In this box I found a telegram from Apr 1945 telling a family that their son, Pfc Claude Ray Palmer, Jr., US Marine Corp, had been killed at Iwo Jima on 16 March 45. There was a couple military papers and the letter from Pres. Roosevelt in grateful memory. I believe he belongs on your list. The article says he was a radioman with the reconnaisance unit of the Fifth Marine Division. He was 19 when he died. I have kept all these things in his memory. I have been trying to find his family all these years to no avail. Any suggestions? If I don't find them this year I have purchased a special frame that will memorialize him for his sacrifice. I still shed a tear for him and I didn't even know him. If you have any questions, please email me at home. 27 Feb 09

Aloha, Ewa Field was a famous USMC WW-II Aviation Base, historic December 7 battlesite, and was a Naval Airfield going back to 1925. We are trying to save it from being bulldozed for a Shopping Center. Ewa Field is currently on President Bush's list to be named as part of a wider National Pearl Harbor Monument, designated under the National Antiquites Act of 1906. The land is a USMC WW-II airfield that was likely the FIRST American Battle of World War II- being struck by IJN Zero fighters at 07:55 AM, Dec. 7, 1941, BEFORE Pearl Harbor was struck. It was also the "Base of Aces", with famous Ace pilot squadrons like the "Black Sheep, "Swash Bucklers" and "Wake Island Avengers". We need YOUR help to make the U.S. Navy comply with Federal Preservation Statutes and Presidential Executive Orders and NOT turn Historic WW-II Ewa Field into a Shopping Center!

My very close cousin Wayne Eugene Lipsett was in the U.S. Marines back in the Vietnam war. I was in the Navy at Atsugi, Japan when he was in Vietnam. This was in 1965-67 time period. I'm not sure when he joined the Marines however, he was born in 1947, quit school to join and Im guessing early 1965, maybe in 64. He died on March 12, 2008 from esophical cancer, after surviving a lung cancer five or six years prior. I was looking for a website to include his name as a proud Marine. I also wonder if "agent orange" had anything to do with his illness. Another family member, Uncle my marriage was proud of his service to Marine Corp. He was in during WWII and was at Iwo Jima. He died some years ago, September of 1989. Jesse Thomas Wilson, Sr. His son, another Marine served in the late 1960's at Quantico pretty much his whole enlistment. He was sharp Marine and was Marine of the Quarter several times. He was Jesse Thomas Wilson, Jr. He lives in Charlotte, NC, very successful businessman. Bill Culver 12 May 08
