Hello, i have been doing research in reguards to my father Bryant C Collins. I have found a few websites where it would like to update any information reguarding him. I believe this page website would like to know how he is doing. He lives in North Carolina now, and i will post my email address if you would like for me to give him any contact information. He is not a computer type person, because if he was he would be interested in this website as well. Thanks Jennifer Pickard britmick2001@yahoo.com

Hi my name is Pete Peterson, I served with B C at Camp Lejeune in the early 60's in 2nd Battalion 2nd Marines and if memory serves me we both as Cpls transferred to 1st Battalion 2nd Marines for a Med Cruise. We both went to Vietnam but to different units. I lost track of him until the 70's when as a Captain I was on a Gy/Sgt Selection Board as a member. When we (the promotion board) were going through the 03 MOS Field I was given his Record Book to review for promotion to Gy/Sgt and then brief his case to the board. Because of some Drill Field issues I had to brief him by exception even thought he had fallen in the automatic select group. The President of the Board a Colonel and the rest of the board had been made aware of the fact that I knew him, I recommended that he be selected for Gy/Sgt and was pleased that the entire board agreed with my recommendation. I've wondered about him over the years and would like a chance to say hello. Respectfully submitted Major Charles R Peterson (Pete)
