This site is dedicated to the Marines and Corpsmen who served with the
3rd Battalion, 26th Marine Regiment, during the
unit’s combat tour in South Vietnam.
The time period covered is from 11
December, 1966 to 19 March, 1970. During its tour the Battalion was at
times assigned to the 3rd Marine Division or the 1st
Marine Division, and did another tour as a Battalion Landing Team.
I have heard a rumor that the Battalion had actually been afloat, as a
Battalion Landing Team, off the coast of South Vietnam for some time,
before making its initial landing by the Cua Viet River located, between the DMZ
and Dong Ha, on the South China Sea coast.
