Class of 1988
Marine Corps, 20+ Years

I left for Navy boot camp the morning after the senior all nighter to join the reserves and get some $ for college. While attending EWU, I converted from the Navy reserves to a Marine officer program. After finishing officer candidate school, and graduating from EWU, I went to a school that all Marine Officers attend called "The Basic School" in Quantico, Virginia. Upon completion of TBS I went through various stages of flight training in Pensacola, Florida and Corpus Christi, Texas while dodging a few hurricanes in both locations. The last 6 1/2 yrs of active duty I was stationed in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii on the island of Oahu. Island fever set in after about a yr. Of the last 3 yrs that I was stationed there I was only "on" the island about 1yr and deployed the other 2.

While on active duty I was a pilot and flew the CH53 (basically it's a "really big" helicopter). I also served with a ground unit as a Forward Air Controller (basically talking aircraft onto targets or into landing zones). Outside the good ole' USA, I've been to India, Korea, Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Guam, Australia, and Canada. I plan on doing more traveling in the future.

Since leaving active duty I'm still a Major serving in a component of the Marine Corps reserve.

Class of 1965
Marine Corps, 4 Years

After training in San Diego, I served with the 2nd. Bn., 5th. Marines in Viet Nam. Our unit was one of the first to enter Hue City during TET 1968 and was depicted in the movie Full Metal Jacket.

My tour was from July 1967 to August 1968.

During my tour, I met "little" Steve Johnson in a small village called An Hoa. Steve was pulling an operation nearby and his unit used our camp for Thanksgiving. I also ran into Doug Hamilton who was in the line coming home as I was entering country.

I had a good tour with the Marines and the experience has served me well over the years.

Semper Fi!
