ALRIGHT, THOSE WHO WERE ON THE HAPPY HARRY ON MAY 15 1975 THIS IS FOR YOU. I TALKED TO AL BAILEY LAST NIGHT ON THE PHONE (HE IS ONE OF THE ORGANIZERS OF THE REUNIONS WE HAVE). NOW HE ASKED ME TWO QUESTIONS. FIRST DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THE CO'S OF THE HOLT, CORAL SEA AND WILSON ARE STILL LIVING AND WHERE THEY ARE. HE WOULD LIKE TO CONTACT ONE OF THEM TO BE GUESS SPEAKER FOR THE NEXT REUNION. SECOUND HE WOULD LIKE ANYONE FROM THESE SHIP TO CONTACT HIM. HE WANTS MORE SAILORS AND AIR FORCE PERSONNEL TO COME. THE REASON WHY IS THAT THEY FEEL IF IT WASN'T FOR US MANY MORE OF THE MARINES WOULD NOT BE HERE WITH US TODAY. I WENT TO THE 2016 REUNION WITH DOUBT AS IF I WOULD BE WELCOME. WELL AFTER THE FIRST MINUTE

I WAS THERE THAT ALL CHANGED. I WAS TREATED WITH RESPECT AND OPEN ARMS. THERE WAS A FEW FROM THE CORAL SEA AND WILSON THERE ALSO. THEY WERE ALL TREAT THE SAME AS ME. THE ORGANIZATION OF THE WEB SITE KOHTANG. COM WAS MADE UP FOR ALL OF US THAT FOUGHT THAT DAY. NOT JUST THE MARINES, BUT ALL THE BRANCHES THAT WERE THERE. THE REUNIONS ARE FOR HEALING, GETTING THINGS OUT THAT WERE HELD IN. SO I AM POSTING HIS PHONE NUMBER SO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO KNOW MORE CAN CONTACT HIM FOR MORE INFO. THE NEXT REUNION IS AT FORT WALTON BEACH FLORIDA MAY 13-17 2018. SO IF YOU FEEL THAT YOUR NOT WELCOME CALL HIM UP AND FIND OUT THAT YOU ARE WRONG. COME TO FIND OUT THAT YOU ARE A PART OF THEM BECUASE WE ARE THE HEROS TO THEM IN MANY WAYS. COME AND FIND THAT WE ARE ALL FAMILY. SO CONTACT AL BAILEY AT 1-240-876-9717 AND TALK TO HIM. HE WANTS TO HEAR FROM EVERYONE AND LET YOU ALL KNOW THAT YOUR WELCOME AND WANTED AT THE REUNIONS

I just found this site, I was PO3 radio operator on a VP-17 P-3 flying high level
communication and surveillance that day. I listened on the VHF during the whole operation we were their before the Jollies came in at daybreak. You all have my highest respect for what you did and went through that day. I have some pictures of the island and the USS Holt. Also we had one of our P-3's shot at and hit when they buzzed the Mayeguez after locating it earlier after it was first taken. Thanks for the site.

Semper Fi my Brothers!, as I mentioned in my last message, I was with H&S Co., 2/9,
Camp Schwab, Okinawa, on May 0f 1975. I stayed back on Camp Schwab & I handled all the mail for 2/9. I remember SSgt Anderson nickname: Hawkeye, mine was "Yogi", I remember Lcpl Schreck, Lcpl Ogle, Larry Branson, Dan Kinner, Smitty, many others, but unfortunately me memory escapes me, maybe some of you that remember me may try and get a hold of me. I had many fond memeories of 2/9 personnel, brothers in arms!! God Bless all of you!!
