WELCOME Marines,
of the USMC  "HAWK"  Light Anti-Aircraft Missile (LAAM)  Battalions.     

Since 10 November 1775, all Marines have been basic riflemen and served the Corps where needed, from cook to
computer operator. For a brief period in the Marine Corps time-line 1960 to 1997, just 37 years of over a 240+ year
history, tens of thousands of Marines served and a few died, in the Corps
 "HAWK"   Light  Anti - Aircraft  Missile  Bns.
Their unit histories may not include names like Tarawa, Iwo Jima or Inchon but the lineage of these Cold War Marine units
and the Marines, who answered the call to duty and deployed during the Cuban Missile Crisis, to Da Nang and Chu Lai, in
Vietnam and around the Persian Gulf, in Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm, placed these men and women in harm's
way and forever bonded their Warrior Spirit to those Marines who have come before and after.

Hello HAWK Marines,

I'm sending out this message to let you know about a HAWKer reunion that is being planned by a US Army (HAWK) Air Defense Artillery group
organized by Calvin Bridges. I have posted their notices before. Our group has been invited again to join this activity. At this time, I am not planning any
reunion for our USMC HAWK ASSOCIATION this year (maybe next fall at Pensacola, FL).

This is really sobering. First click on a state. When it opens, scroll down to the city where you went to high school and look at the
names. Click on the name and it will give details of the person's death, a picture or at least their bio and medals.

This really is an amazing web site. Someone spent a lot of time and effort to create it.

I hope that everyone who receives this appreciates what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.

Pass the link on to others, as many know wonderful people whose names are listed.
