Hi everyone, I am looking to reconnect with anyone who remembers me. We landed in Chu Lia in March or April 1965 so Sea Bees could build the air strip and later moved to DaNang and on to hill 55 where I stayed until it was time to rotate back. I was assigned to Quantico. Getting older and the memory isn't as good as it used to be. I remember Cpl William c. Laidlaw KIA in operation Starlight was my first tank commander in tank training school Camp Lejeune 1964.Anyone remember being with me please reconnect.Rreesejohn@aol.comSemper Fidelis,John Reese
