Hey Lorrie, thanks for the info you sent....

 

To add a bit to Lonnys last post... HHC is the company that the battalion officers and top sgt's are assigned to as well as battalion supply, intel and such... Recon units were also a part of HHC in most cases I think... ?

BTW.... Welcome to you William (Bill)...?

 

Don't know if you've seen it but the society of the 1st Inf Div also has a site with a message board where you can find many 2/2 brothers... Just check the links on this site and you can get there easy....

UOTE] That is correct RogerK 2/2 hhc had 2 recon sections 38 and 69. Each section used 5-7 tracks, heavily armed ( 3x .50 cal machine guns each plus loads of other ordinace. Our job was to locate and engage hoping our speed and firepower would allow us to hold our own until larger forces arrived to relieve us. I was a vehicle commander, later platoon sgt. of 38 section

 Hi Pete. Sorry but no Iowa blood in me. I'm a city boy from Springfield, MA.

  I was born and bred at Cape Cod in a little town called Wellfleet. I spend my summers there but work in the city.

                                                       Thanks for the message,

                                                                          Bill
