1st platoon charlie comp. 1st divi.my dad was in the vietnam war. he passed away last year and i miss him so much! i am trying to get as much info as possible, what he did there exactly. he was in the “jungle” killed some vietcong, how many i dont know. i didnt get to ask him all the things i wanted to. growing up i didnt talk about it because he was living with p/t/s/d. and daddy doesnt want his little girl to hear those things but now i am starving for this knowledge. i know that he has had best friends die along side of him and i know that the 1st platoon did more “front line killing” basically those titles have special meanings as to what he did there and i want to know desperatly, he was very proud to be a marine even though they were treated horrible when they came home from that war, he lived the saying “USMC TO THE END” if anyone that was there knows those titles or even my dad Dennis G. Klein please give me some info on this thank you from a proud daughter of a marine !!
my father left me a USMC issue m1911 .45 caliber handgun, with three magazines. he has killed well over 5 japanese soldiers with that gun. he was issued it in 1933, and carried it all through world war two and korea. the gun is in excellent condition.
my uncle, who served in the US army and was stationed in germany, gave me a german army issued 9mm luger, and it has two magazines. he got it off of one of the many enemy infantry he put down. gun shoots perfect, all parts are from the original era it was captured in. meaning nothing has been replaced since he took it off the enemy.
i am never getting rid of these weapons, i will pass them down to my kids when they turn of age. just out of curiosity though…how much do you think each one, magaznes included, would be worth? take a guess i dont need an exact ammount.
