Emails from Members

On June 25, 2021 at 10:57 PM

Mr. Ruggles – My name is Michael P. McManus.  I’ve received emails (from you) for Delta, Alpha and H&S Co’s.  I was assigned to all those 1st Recon Bn. Companies.  On the first occasion I joined the Bn. At Camp Pendleton and later on Okinawa (Camp Schwab), and finally in ChuLai RVN.  I rotated back to the world and was assigned by my primary MOS of 2531 to Delta Battery, 13th Marines: ‘05  howitzer Bn.,  5th MarDiv.  Spent 6 months at Pendleton and 6 months at Kaneohe Bay, First Mar Brigade.  In early 68 I requested orders back to RVN.  As a SGT. E-5,  I thought I’d get a cushy job in the rear with the gear.  No luck, was sent back to 1st Recon.  During this tour I served as the Alpha Co.  Radio Chief for a period and was transferred to H&S as the Bn. Radio Chief.  In conclusion, one email to this address would absolutely suffice.

Thank you all for the service you continue to do for all of us. I was with S-2 in 1970-72; briefly attached with Company A before our return back to CONUS, then reattached to H&S Co.

Unfortunately I am living here in Philippines, semi-retired, and not able to attend the reunion. Will be looking for photos! God Bless our Nation, the Corps, Recon, family, and all who served.

Thanks for all the hard work. I sent out test messages to all 5 emails addresses and so far they're holding looks like they're all good.
My hat's off to 1st Force Company they seem to be a very organized company. I wish that the other companies were like that would make my job a lot easier. I had 3 members of 1st Force volunteer to help locate members emails and information of missing members.

I appreciate all the help.

Thank You,
