2/7 Marines in Vietnam, 1965-66. By Alex Lee. Best Seller. After paving the way in Qui Nhon for the arrival of more American military, 2/7 was assigned to Chu Lai, where the battalion fought its most bitter, deadly battles. With the scalding ring of truth, Lee captures the conditions of the bone-weary 2/7 Marines as they slogged through jungles and spent night after night in dreary, rain-filled foxholes.

This is an outstanding book. Another outstanding book is Force Recon Command, which is also by the same author Ales Lee, Lt.Col., USMC (Ret). I have had several paper back copies of this book that I've read and re-read. Makes me proud that I served as a Marine. I really wish that Amazon would offer "Utter's Battalion" as a Kindle selection. Col. Lee's other book, Force Recon Command, is offered through Kindle. I would just enjoy having an e version of this book because I read it again about every two years. It's probably the best practical leadership book that I've ever come across. Semper Fidelis.

Most likely, not too many people know Leon Utter first saw combat as a young enlisted machine gun section leader on Guadalcanal in 1942. He was one of the finest Marine officers I ever had the privilege of knowing. This excellent book is but one chapter in Col. Utter's long, distinguished career as a United States Marine. One of my favorite anecdotes about Col. Utter has to do with a tour he served as Marine Officer Instructor in the Navy ROTC unit at Yale University in the early 1960's. While walking to class one morning, in uniform of course, he was accosted by a rather unkempt young man who declared that he was a pacifist. (Then) Major Utter replied, with a smile, "So am I. But I work at it."

I, unlike some, remember Qui Nhon the best. It was a bad time getting us ready for a worse time. Things not mentioned the leaches in every rice paddie. The water buffs that the boys could ride but could not stand the smell of us.
Chu Lai air strip where we finished the fence line and sappers trying to come thru the fence line during the Bob Hope show.
Helped me remember things I had tried to bury for so many years. It brought back a lot of hurt and pain. but the great memories of great people.
This is from just another grunt weapons platoon FOX 2/7 July 1964 till the Mix master took me away early 1966

Alex Lee was an inspiration. I was there and it happened as he said.
