I am finally releasing books, videos and a record that I've been saving for some time. Check on the equipment exchange page soon. BUT, for FREE to a Vietnam Era Marine Corps Vet - an original copy of : "Ambassadors In Green - A Pictorial Account of U.S. Marines in Vietnam...The Battles they Fought...The Hardships They Endured...The Friendships They Established... And The Sacrifices They Made For Freedom.". This was a special magazine put out by the Leatherneck Association in 1971. It's a little worn, but clean, with pages intact. I'll pay the shipping too. First one up gets it. PLEASE, I want to give a 'Nam Vet first chance for this, great pics, commentary, history, and this poem from the beginning: REFLECTING we waded ashore in '65, with weapons in our hand; Not a single shot was fired, as we dashed across the sand. Since then, six long years have passed, and we recall with pride The grins and pains of many friends who fought and bled and died. Bleeding isn't glorious; There's no success in dying. But to keep men free of slavery is worth the grief of trying. So, God, if You'd accept the men who passed the final test, We'd appreciate Your kindness If You'd grant them lasting rest. -Bartlett (never been a Marine - 82nd Airborne- hope this does for someone what it has done for me) Who knows, maybe ya'll Marines & any 'Nam Vets might start a private mailing group to send this around when you've finished with it.

Ron, looks like an excellent site. If you are a member would you mind posting this maybe as a url link? It's just that I'm spending too much time on the computer lately so I've confined my self to pretty much just this site for a little while. Thanks

WSmac, I have a copy of " Ambassadors in Green" too. Got it through the USMC publication "Leatherneck" in the early 70's, just looked at it, cost was $1.00 back then. I can't part with it though. A few years back I retired from the USMC and a few days before I left North Carolina I stopped at the local Army Navy store. They had a copy too, in their glass case. Wanted $70.00 for it. Thanks for stirring up that memory, now I have to go and read it again.

Thanks for the post Tomcat. I really like looking at it too, even though I was Post-Vietnam(enlisted Sept. 19,1978). I'm really hoping someone will respond here, I don't do garage sales, and I don't want to drop it off at a used book store or Goodwill.

WSmac, just got in from a graduation party and had to look back at your post. I can't believe no one has jumped on your very generous offer! That book is PRICELESS!! However, I don't believe there are many vets here, just the wanna be's, etc. etc... Please be sure a vet gets your copy. Semper Fi, and thanks for thinking of those "nam vets".
