To: Rick, Larry F. and Joe C., Since my last posting I have confirmed that a Roscoe K. Bruner lives in Interlachen, Florida, which is near Orange Lake and Gainesville, just north of Ocala. This has to be Rocky's son. I hope to get some contact information soon to pass along.

Michael T. Ayer |
This to Larry Fincher! Larry I served with you on Adak arriving in January of 1964. I believe I have Rocky Bruner's email address somewhere. He has a son living close to me here in Florida. We corresponded for a brief time but not recently. A computer change is creating some difficulty finding his contact information. He is living in KY. I know little of this site, so will close for now until I see if this posts.

I found this site while searching for info about my father, MSgt Walter F Hunter. He served with 1st Radio in Japan, Kaneohe and Torii Station in the 50's and 60's. He passed in June 1979 of massive heart attack. I saw the picture of basic school Nov 60, and wondered if Gunny Hunter was in the front row. I know he went to California for training while we were in Hawaii. Does anyone remember? Thanks so much. I was raised on military bases and wouldn't trade the experiences for anything.

Love the site! I was looking for some maps or photos of my stay in country. As a brief transient of Hill 37 in the early months of '71 I was curious to see the photo of the hill. As a corpsman with the 1st Bn I passed through there going out and coming back to and from the bush, such as it was around there. Memory is one thing, photos and maps quite another. I remember the battalion aid station's hooch and the bunker just out the door. That the ARVNs had a 105 just behind it, it seemed: SURPRISE! That and, oh, they had boxes by the gate so we could drop off all our grenades as we came in from the bush. All in all, I think I only spent 4 days there; although, strangely, it seems like home in some way.

Webmaster comments   Karen,

Sorry to learn of your Dad's death. Unfortunately, I did not know him.

You may have better luck if you read through his "Service Record Book" and then Google units to which he as assigned.

Semper Fi,

I saw Glen Staup's message (7/7/09) regarding Jerry Duran. He was an outstanding counter-intel officer with 2nd Maw in 1979-80. A very fine man, able to work with people at all levels. He had attained the rank of captain by that time. I am almost positive we have to be talking about the same Jerry Duran.

Glen Staup |
Great web site. I saw Tom Black's entry from 2/22/08 about Jerry Duran and it brought back some good memories. I was a Navy CTO2 assigned to the "Marine section" in the comms center at NSGD Rota Spain in 1972. SSgt Duran was the CWO of the section at the time. I had some real reservations about being assigned to a "Marine section", but ended up learning a great deal from SSgt Duran. He was without a doubt one of the best supervisors I worked for during my time in the Navy. I worked for him until he left to become a warrant officer I believe.

Hi brothers and sisters,

Iím going up to Wm. S. Middleton Memorial VA Hospital in Madison, WI on Tuesday.

Iím leaving to have a lung transplant. Theyíre getting me up there to finalize the prep work and I should have it very soon.

I got Pulmonary Fibrosis (due to what I and others believe was caused by Agent Orange) and itís destroyed my lungs.

Iíve got diabetes, coronary artery disease and kidney problems also due to the big ĎA.O.í. My diabetes and coronary artery disease the VA says is service connected and Iím at 70%. They wonít move me to 75-100 percent as they say my lung problems are ďIdiopathicĒ, could be as well as could not be caused by Agent Orange, yet the disease is chemically induced. 3 years ago my lungs were clear. I did smoke but quit over 10 years ago, so go figure.

Iím not looking for sympathy, just telling it like a jarhead does ďas it is!Ē.

Hello all,

My name is Ben and I am the son of Marty Postma. I am currently in the USMC ROTC at NC State.

Maybe I'll find my way into Cryptologic comms after I commission.
Anyway, thank you all for your service. God Bless.

Sad news about a former SIGINT Marine. Sgt William A. "Bill" Titus, age 64, passed away in Omaha, NE. He served six years and was a Vietnam veteran who earned the Bronze Star with combat "V" while serving with 1st Radio Bn at Dong Ha Combat Base. He was in my DF section and worked at some of the isolated sites. He death was reported in this month's Leatherneck. He was an oustanding Marine and friend.
