Semper Fi!, Gung Ho!, and Happy Birthday Marines





Here are five segments of Tet ’68 with the First and Fifth Marine Regiments







I am personally saluting former Oath Keepers General Counsel and Board member David Rivers who was with the U.S. Marine Fifth Regiment, on the ground there at the same place as myself, at the same time, at Chu Lai, RVN, in 1967. Semper Fi, Bro!

  1. The photo won Adams the 1969 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography, though he was later said to have regretted its impact. The image became an anti-war icon. Concerning Loan and his famous photograph, Adams wrote in Time:

    The general killed the Viet Cong; I killed the general with my camera. Still photographs are the most powerful weapon in the world. People believe them, but photographs do lie, even without manipulation. They are only half-truths. What the photograph didn’t say was, “What would you do if you were the general at that time and place on that hot day, and you caught the so-called bad guy after he blew away one, two or three American soldiers?”[4]

    Adams later apologized in person to General Nguyễn and his family for the damage it did to his reputation. When Loan died of cancer in Virginia, Adams praised him: “The guy was a hero. America should be crying. I just hate to see him go this way, without people knowing anything about him.

  2. To my Fellow Marines, Thank You and Happy Birthday!

    To Oathkeepers, Thank You for honoring The Corp and those who bravely and faithfully served in battle, fighting for and with their brother Marines!

    Russell Seibert Sr.
    81mm mortar gunner.
    3/5 Camp Pendleton, Calif 1973-74.

    A proud wearer of the French Fourragère, because of YOU, who earned it for us in WWI. It took nearly the full month of June 1918, but you took Belleau Wood from the Germans, when Major Maurice E. Shearer commanding 3/5 relayed to command, “”Woods now U.S. Marine Corps entirely,”

    My grateful Thank You to all Marines and Units who fought, were wounded or killed in that valiant and spirited battle and all those since!
    Semper Fi

  3. Semper Fi to all my Devil Dog brothers and sisters and a salute to all oathkeepers everywhere.
    Happy 239th MARINES…ooorah!!

  4. Semper Fi,from the last of the 3/3 3MarDiv musketeers. One were KIA in the Nam back in ’69, the other of us did himself back in ’85 without letting me know what he was going to do. I had to make it right it right with his ol’lady. Made it right with her, but I have never reconciled with it. But I still truck on, and that is my lot in life as the last of the 3 Musketeers of Dong Ha, The Rockpile, Camp what-the-fuck-ever, (yes, just maybe Camp Carrol), what-the hell and whatsoever. Just trying to continue on for my wife and daughter. If not for them, then maybe I just wouldn’t be here today.
    Semper Fi and fuckin’ Do Or Die!

  5. Glad you made it Monk.
    Looks like you tried to do right. Best any of us can do is “do what we can.” You did well.
    There is nothing to reconcile with your self concerning your brother that made a bad choice.
    You are not on the hook for what action someone else chooses. We all have free will.

    It is most difficult for those left behind after someone we care for chooses Suicide.
    Some drink themselves to death. Some drug until dead. Some get boozed up, go for a one way ride on a motorcycle. Some take direct action. All will break the hearts of those left behind.

    Two gone last year. Same as your friend. Tough to believe. But we all “Keep on Keepin on.”

    You never want to break the hearts of those you care for. So you will NEVER choose a gate pass out of here.
    You are strong. Be proud of yourself. God be with you. Peace is yours.
    You will be fine Monk. “Keep on Keepin on.”
