Sites For Individual Units for ALL Wars
There are few organizations which I respect as much as I do the Marine Corps but the United States Army Special Forces was the breeding ground for some of the finest warriors and best friends I've ever had. I'm proud to stand with them in any fight or any barroom in the world. This page by Bob Golden (II Corps MSF 68-69) is outstanding and I encourage everyone to visit. You won't be sorry! And while you're in the TAO, be sure to check out the resource page he has set up at http://www.greenberet.net/gi/vietnam_war.html. It's a goldmine for the serious researcher. "USMC/Vietnam Helicopter Association" - A fine site dedicated to the Stagecoachs and the drivers, shotguns and crews who carried the grunts into "Indian Country" and who risked all to carry them back out again when the fur was flying. There is a lot here - especially for those of that gallant profession - but more than enough to keep any visitor coming back again and again. "The Walking Dead" site is inspired by, and dedicated to, the officers and men of the 1st Battalion 9th Marines. No Marine who has served during or since Vietnam needs to be told who the "Walking Dead" are or how they got their name. I heard a story once about a FNG checking in at 1/9 in mid February of 1968. When he was signing for his deuce gear, the supply Sergeant told him: "I'm going on R&R so I won't be here when you get back from your first patrol. I better issue you your Purple Heart now." Then the Supply Officer came by and said: "You'll be gone for a whole week Sarge. Better give him two!"
"Kilo Battery - 4th Battalion 12th Marines" is the work of Jerry Gorman, a true Marine Vet and Web Artist. His graphics are as clean and clear as you'll find and his ribbon graphics are the best I've seen. (Please check with Jerry before you use them) His photos are certain to bring back memories and his sound library is out of this world. I recommend that everyone visit this site often. It is the finest, most visually stimulating collection of military history that I know of. Don't miss it!
Vietnam Veterans of the Second Battalion, First Marines. This is 2/1's first attempt at providing a forum for members and a place of interest to all Marines.

Organization President David Doc Johnson: "Our business is merely to reunite friends who have been left to wonder what happened to each other during the past quarter century. If you served with 2/1 in the Republic of Vietnam, we hope you join in our fellowship"."Psywarrior" - is an excellent site by a retired SF Officer. The theme of the site is one that all vets can relate to. Don't miss the tribute to the late Colonel "Nick" Rowe-USASF, a true American hero who survived 5 years as a POW before escaping from his VC captors. The author was a personal friend of Colonel Rowe and worked with him before he was assassinated while serving on special assignment in the Philippines.
