Ralph DiPietro, 

I was a corpsman in 1966 - 1967 in 1st platoon, Charlie Company. This is the first I’ve heard of a website. I just happened to google it. So glad to see that everyone gets together. I’ve been incarcerated (you can’t tell me that PTSD doesn’t make you do some very dumb things!) and now I am trying to catch up with what I’ve missed. I would like to throw my name out there hoping that some guys that were in 1st platoon would remember me.
Please get back to me. I would definitely want to receive any future correspondence of what you guys do. I look forward to hearing from you or some of the other fellas. Click Here
