In the mid ‘90s the Marine Corps decided Doom II might make for an excellent training supplement. It did so for two reasons—a forward-thinking commandant and a budgetary shortfall.The Marines have always had to make due with little financial support compared to the other military branches.

Korea and McCarthy ^ | 6/10/2014 | Bill StarrPosted on 6/10/2014, 9:33:56 AM by rktmanHistorical revisionism can be useful, but frequently it is distorted to concoct new folklore by people with axes to grind. Millions of television viewers believed they learned something about the Korean War from MASH.

Joseph Raymond McCarthy. Español: Este persona...

Joseph Raymond McCarthy. Español: Este personaje público norteamericano, fue uno delos más criticos contra el comunismo coartando las libertades en E.E.U.U. y haciendo de la persecución politca y de los recorte de libetades una de sus máximas. Encarceló a no pocas personas por tener un pensamiento contrario al suyo, acusandolos de poco patriotas o de traidores, uno de los máximos “democratas”. Français : Joseph Raymond McCarthy.

Here’s an old one I just happened to find on an old webpage of mine…

Here’s one I received a few years ago from Marine Jim Ratliff, now deceased.

About four or five years ago when I was new to the net, I was soliciting stories for my Marine Vignettes/Tales Of The Corps webpages. I got an e-mail from Jim about that time, and he advised that he was then putting out a newsletter for H-3-5 News which was his old company from the Korean War days. His hands were full already w/the newsletter, but his newsletter contained many stories from H-3-5 Marines; and he invited me to post the stories to my webpages, if I would like to do so.

The Marines were besieged when the Chinese entered the Korean War November 27, 1950, by sending 200,000 shock troops against Allied forces. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


I e-mailed Jim back, “you bet, I want them!

I did post many of the H-3-5 stories, and they are still on Gunny G’s…for anyone who would like to see them. Jim had been successful in rounding up many of the Marines and Navy Corpsmen from his old H-3-5 days.

Jim died a year or so ago, and here is one story of his own that I have had rat-holed on my hard drive and just ran across again today.
