Here’s an old post of mine I just ran across online–it had previously been posted elsewhere, and I have never found the specific answer to my question on this.

Gunny G Inquiry: Re POTUS Richard M. Nixon At Pendleton Parade Ground – Fallen Through The Cracks of History? Re Overjoyed troops swarm Obama as he makes first presidential visit to Baghdad

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2224637/posts ***** Re POTUS Richard M. Nixon At Pendleton Parade Ground – Fallen Through The Cracks of History?

Well….let me just say I have some doubts as to the above “Baghdad” headline… But it does serve to remind me of April 30, 1971–I think that date is correct, and the occasion was probably the return of the 1st Marine Division to Camp Pendleton, California from the RVN.

Does anyone here recall/ever run across documentation of President Nixon visiting the 1st Marine Division at Camp Pendleton when he was mobbed by the troops after speaking and ceremonies, and carried around the parade ground on the shoulders of the troops?????

It was a sight to behold.

I know this one to be the genuine article as I was there at the time.

For some reason or other there seems to be no record of this–at least not what I’m looking for, i.e., photos and/or video– although there was TV coverage, etc. of this event at the time.

Just another of those things that seem to have disappeared/fallen through the cracks of history. I have searched the ‘Net and there seems to be no photos/videos available.

Have been attempting to find an online version/photos of this event for some time now–a good contrast to the alleged event in Baghdad!
