I am looking for members of the 1st Division who where in China with my husband. He often speaks about different friends that he would like to see once again but refuses to use the computer. I get short story's now and again but not a whole lot. My husband is 76 yrs young and joined the Marines from New Kensington, PA... April 13,1943 to April 13,1946... stationed at Bainbridge,Maryland.. San Diego Naval Air Station, Calif.. Memphis,Tenn., Jacksonville, Fla., New Bern, NC.. Combat duty Asiatic Pacific Area June 22,1945-Mar. 24,1946...Mindanoa, Admidlty Islands, New Guinea, Biak, Marati, Luzon, Okinawa, China(Peping etc)
This would really help him if he could once again reunite with others who served proudly with him.
Thank you for you time in reading this message.
Peace Be With You Piece By Piece

Lyle, Iwas at West Field in Peiping from October `45 until sometime in `46 and was transferred to South Field until July of `46. I was in SMS12 MAG12 1st MAW in Zamboanga Mindenao and went up to Taku on USS Sheridan in October `45. Came back to the States on USS Gen. J.C. Breckenridge in July `46. Rode a troop train from Dago to Lejeune and discharged 10 August `46. My home address is 1856 Hunter Ave., Mobile, Ala.36606-1331.

PS Are you member of the China Marine Association? Just costs $10 a year.

I was a Navy FMF corpsman serving with the Marines 3 1/2 years who sailed from Treasure Island, San Francisco for China on the USS General Breckenridge in the summer of 1946. I recall that the Breckenridge had an accident which involved the port facilities during either docking at or departure from the U.S. I was a replacement for 2nd Bn, 1st Marines in North China, serving with them nearly a year in Tientsin and Peking. I am trying to locate someone or some agency which has the sailing records (date of departure, ports of call, i.e. Manilla, Shanghi, and date of debarkation at Tangu, China)of the Breckenridge during the summer of 1946. I am a member of the China Marine Association. I will appreciate any help you can give me in locating either persons or agencies where I can obtain this information. Thank you. Arnold

Believe that I left the USA from San Diego on the USS DREW. Went to the Admiralty islands and then up the chain to Mindanoa in the Phillapines. Was with MAG 24 first at Malabang and then to Headquarters Sqd. in Zamboanga. From there to Okinowa and from there to China. Had a one nite stopover in Shanghai. We were the first Marines to go to the French compound. One load on a DC-3. Three enlisted men and the rest officers including one General. We all ate 10 in ones for Two days. Ibecame ill in Oct. and was put in the Hospital and the evacuated to Shanghai. The USS Repose was in Harbor so rec. good care. About 120 patients were sent to Oakland Naval Hospital on a rat infested AKA. Arrived a few days before Christmas and rec a 10dollar check from the Hearst papers.

Left China Late July in '46. Breckenridge took us to San Diego . Do not remember anything that I'd consider an accident or damage to ship.

Lyle, there were two airfields at Peiping, Lantienchang [West Field] and Nanyouwan [South Field]. I was at West Field from October `45 until about MAY OF `46 when we all moved to South Field.
West Field was out near the Summer Palace and the Yenching University. That`s where we kept the Japs before they were sent home.
Did you get the application for the China Marine Association?
