44 years ago, May 30, 1970. We lost you, Salty, but you will never be forgotten. We are slowly, one by one, rejoining you. Peace be with you my Recon brothers.

I can’t help you there. I left the country in Oct. 1970 & a lot of the guys I knew well left before then.
Have you tried the VVA newspaper. Called the ‘VVA Veteran’. It has a locator section where you can post free ads trying to find people. Well I think it’s still free. We found several guys from the platoon that way.
