Larry "Sandy" Sanderson HM3
2/1 Foxtrot 1965
I was an HM3 with Foxtrot 2-1 when they left the States in '65
Harvest Moon was my first big operation and
the chest and then spent the next 9 months at USNH Yokosuka.
I stayed in the Navy for 22 years, retiring as a CPO in '85. I am originally from
HM2 Cornelius Van Brunniese was the senior company corpsman. I was second senior, but spent a lot of time with
all three platoons. The
rest of the corpsmen were HN Bob Greding from
2-1 association), HN Don Counce from
HN Richard Dork from Chicago, and HN Terry Orr from
We left the states with another HN, Bruce Dean from
we went in-country when his family was killed in an auto accident. I doubt that there was ever a company that
had that many corpsmen later on in the war. Archie Williner was one of the Marines that carried me out when I was
wounded and has convinced me to join the 2-1 association and attend the reunion in November.
