India 3/7, '68-69 Tom Smith, Jimmy Smith, George Sager and Gary Kelly all served in Vietnam with my friend, Tommy Price who was KIA Feb. 23, 1969 along with several of his fellow Marines when  India 3/7 battled a company from the 141st NVA in a little village called La Chau II. If not for these Marines, I would never have known what  happened to Tommy, nor have recovered pictures of him taken in Vietnam. 

This page is dedicated to Tommy Price and his friends. 
Semper fi, Brother Marines~DR
