Hello, My name is Alan Weiss,
On December 1, 1966, I arrived at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, South Carolina assigned to Platoon 126.
After boot camp, I completed my advanced training at Camp Geiger N.C. From there I went to Naval Air Station at Memphis, Tennessee for basic helicopter school training.
Upon graduation from helicopter school, I was assigned to HMH-361 at New River, N.C. I was here for approximately two and a half years serving as a crew chief . My Squadron was sent to Vietnam in 1969. We were stationed at Marble Mt, Air Base in Da Nang. During the 6 months I was there, I served with a great bunch of guys but also lost some very good friends. If anyone reading this also served with HMH-361 during this time, I would like to hear from you. I received an Honorable Discharge from the Marine Corps on December 2, 1970 with the rank of Sgt. I now wish I had stayed in longer.
Presently I reside in Cutchogue, New York with my lovely wife, and 4 beautiful children.
Cutchogue is a small town on the east end of Long Island in the "New Wine Country".
I am a Parts Manager for a local Ford Lincoln Mercury dealer.
