The Rent-A-Battalion blog
Speeches from our 50th Hillfights Memorial are up on the Battalion website. Go to 233part3.homestead.com then click on the library of links and you should be able to find the speeches by Ed Murphy, Doc Lee, and Maj. Charles Chritton. Thanks to Eric Shierman for getting them up. Also check out next reunion page (go back to home on website), nice pictures, but no info yet, probably no info until after first of 2018.
The Don Myers asking about a Vietnam Marine is not our CO Don Meyers.
Thank you for signing up for the 2ND Battalion 3RD Marines Reunion’s After Hours Tour of the Alamo. Firstly, the Alamo has changed their policy and will allow for more than 75 people to attend. Thus, we will not have a waitlist for this event and everyone who signed up will be able to attend!
Secondly, the Alamo has changed their hours of operations resulting in a slight change in the tour itinerary. The tour will still run from 5:30pm – 10:00pm; however, instead of going directly to the Alamo for the tour, the group will now have time for dinner on your own along the San Antonio Riverwalk first, followed by a private tour of the Alamo beginning at 8:15pm. After the tour concludes, the buses will shuttle folks back to the hotel to allow for free time in Alamo Plaza or along the Riverwalk. The last shuttle will return to the hotel at 10:00pm.
The following comment from E. William Paulson, USMC, retired was submitted to your blog:
"Ron, I've left a message on your message board regarding a medevac mission I flew on 22Oc66 in RVN with 2/3. I think I did it right w/o my Grandchildrens tech assist. I thought it might be be of interest. Our call sign was Powerglide Medevac and your gent was Pygmalion 14. It was a date that will stay with me as I'm sure it will with some of your group.
