India Company, 3rd Battalion 26th Marines

The above is artwork to be added (or tipped in) to a book which I had rebound for the only Marine I met from Montana while I was in the service. He sent me the book so that I could look at it and make copies of photos and names that I remembered.

The above is the cover of the book.

This is a photograph of Mitch McCarley and myself after a wet day on patrol. We were not happy campers. Mitch and his wife Brenda came down to Montana from North Pole, Alaska, last year, and we got to spend the day getting reacquainted and remembering the good, the bad, and the ugly. 


  1. We covered a lot of territory in the days of that photo. Jungle in the mountains, elephant grass in the valleys, rice paddies and dikes. Observation post Eagle Eye. We felt lucky to have Dave for our corpsman.
    This means a lot to me, Doc. Thank you.

    Semper fidelis. Mitch McCarley

  2. Mr McCarley, there's no words that can describe my gratitude for your service and sacrifices you gave for your country. Especially making sure my dad made it home safe. Thank you is all I can say!
