Notes from the Commandant:
Apr 15, 1962 Marine Corps operational involvement in the Vietnam War began on Palm Sunday when HMM-362 with its Sikorsky UH-34s arrived at Soc Trang in the Delta South of Saigon. The task unit was called "Shufly" and its first operational employment involved lifting Vietnamese troops into battle.
April 27, 1805 First Lieutenant Presley N. O'Bannon, who with seven other Marines was part of a force of Greeks and Arabs led by American Consul William Eaton, raised the United States flag for the first time over a conquered fortress of the Old World at Deme, a stronghold of the Tripolitan pirates. Two Marines were killed and one wounded in the assault on the walled city. (to the hsores of Tripoli)
Quote of the Month
A Marine should be sworn to the patient endurance of hardships, like the ancient knights; and it is not the least of these to have to serve with sailors: Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery
